Bangalore: David Kirkpatrick the author of The Facebook Effect posits that Facebook could bully Apple. The iPhone and other iOS devices have covered towards a unique level of convergence and the Facebook users present an overwhelming challenge to Apple.

Facebook ever built its own device or mobile operating system it could transform the iPhone device into The Facebook iPhone.

The basic idea as it applies to Apple is the development and rollout of multiple HTML5 applications which would allow Facebook to create a range of mobile applications without having to adhere to the rules and toll charges imposed by Apple's app-store.

Facebook is determined to get onto iPhone, Android and any other major mobile platform too. It will either build its own lingua franca for mobile via HTML5, or it will build an entire fleet of apps. Facebook simply improve upon its current iOS app and not fragment the experience. Or it may develop its own mobile operating system like Android.

1: Now that innovation in IT has came to a grinding halt, only 2 technology are left: facebook and iPad, accounting for most of the interest they are receiving.
