Rumours: ‘Experts’ say Facebook might buy Nokia for £10B to build FacePhone

First…what? 10 Billion? Nokia’s worth more than that just for the patents alone. Stock market evaluation puts them at 11B (which would be expected to rise sharply should Nokia’s new strategy work out for them and they start bringing in profit again).

Some guy called, Paul Amsellem, managing director of Mobile Network Group, a mobile marketing company reckons

Facebook will launch the FacePhone. And whether it has a blue color and a logo with a big F on it, it will definitely be disruptive,

Computerworld says Microsoft’s already linked to Facebook and Amsellem says the three could be very powerful together.

Amsellem then goes on to say that if not Nokia then RIM. Another Facbeook buy could apparently be Opera.

Lumia is already pretty much a facebook phone. Integrated facebook contacts, integrated facebook feed, integrated facebook photos, integrated facebook chat. And the Blue Lumias are kind of Facebook themed. Not sure it needs any more Facebookness.

Facebook Phone – is that even a good idea?
