    The company INQ is working on an Android-based phone called the Cloud Touch, that will be designed specifically around Facebook. It's focus will be to facilitate an easier and better smartphone Facebook experience. A widget displays status updates, albums, videos and photos, and the homescreen has multiple ways to access different Facebook functions. No official word as yet for when or what carrier this phone will appear, but it looks intriguing for the Facebook fanatics. Ultimately though it seems like some programming genius could just create a custom app or UI overlay for the market that will do what this phone will do... What do you guys think?

    It would make more sense to do it with a app or theme/ID via market

    If anything, a custom home application + apps/widgets would be much better, imho.
