As corny as Jeff's jokes are, we think HTC's Neo might have indeed taken the red pill and left our humble dream world, because we've been begging for it for months and it's still not … Read more
Rumors of a Facebook phone have been flying around for years. But has the time come for that chatter to become reality?
