But the assumption is that there will be, for the Facebook phone more of a starter device as a high-end smartphone. When and if the Facebook mobile is actually on the market is still wide open.

This leads to the run those apps under both Symbian, as well as under MeeGo, the other smartphone operating system from Nokia.
