Snapchat reportedly building a smartphone
If it’s half as confusing to use as the app, they’re in trouble
Leading up to its IPO, Snap hired talent away from Apple, HTC, Google, Verizon and Nokia, which signals an investment in some sort of mobile device. Plus, a phone wouldn’t be the company’s first piece of hardware. Snap’s camera-equipped Spectacles just recently went on sale. And even though the product only has basic recording and sharing capabilities, it’s easy to see how future models could become everything we once envisioned for Google Glass.
They’ll really going to have to swing for the fences to get people to actually adopt this thing, assuming it’s real. Remember for years all the rumours of the Facebook phone? This has the same ring to it.
