Internet is a abuzz with rumors of a Facebook smart phone is reporting, somewhat vaguely, that Facebook may be getting into the cell phone business. Details are sketchy. In fact, the notion fits neatly in the rumor category. But Cnet says that it's heard of Facebook at least inquiring with handset makers, and that the company has only denied plans to build a phone itself. No word on potential carriers.
