Codenamed Buffy

Former Apple software and hardware engineers have been hired to create a Facebook smartphone.

Facebook chief technology officer Bret Taylor is said to be leading the project, and the new recruits will expand a group working with Taiwanese phone manufacturer HTC on a project codenamed Buffy – a reference to the vampire slayer TV series.

News of the Buffy phone first emerged in November. It is expected, like Amazon's Kindle reader, to run on a customised version of Android, according to Digitimes.
