Rumors are spreading fast that Facebook is trying to get into the business of hardware, specifically in the mobile phone department, as it is being said that the “Facebook phone” is being ramped up as the next big thing to take on the iPhone.

Facebook has sent out invites to journalists to a special event at their usually secretive Silicon Valley HQ.

The invites promise to allow the journalists to “see what we’re building” – with most rumors pointing to a phone.

This is not the first rumor of a Facebook phone, as rumors have gone on for months about the possibility of Facebook jumping into the mobile phone market.

Rumors claim that Facebook has nabbed some engineers who worked on Apple’s iPhone and iPad, and the Facebook phone is expected to be built by HTC.

Facebook had previously worked on phones with HTC which had a specially designated Facebook button, which allowed users to access the social network with one click.

Is there a place for Facebook in the already overcrowded mobile phone market?
