Maybe Mark Zuckerberg should take Strategy Development?

posted earlier this morning, The 'Facebook Phone' Symbolizes the Problems With Facebook, through the lens of Facebook's upcoming move into the smartphone/handheld device market.

Over the past few years, competition has flooded the handheld electronics market making it extremely difficult to capture enough of the pie to be worth many company's while to stay in the space. As a result, software is now the differentiator and most direct path to profitability. Facebook already holds the advantage there, at least in shear number of users. I was shocked that the organization looked at the marketplace and saw demand for yet another handheld electronic device, especially with the recently failed Twitter venture into this space highlighted in the article.
