Loaded: Facebook phone rumors

2:10 /

Amazon educates consumers on motion gaming, Apple sells iPad refurbs, and Facebook is rumored to be working on a phone.

It's Monday, September 20th, I'm Mark Licea and it's time to get loaded. This weekend, the Internet went nuts over a rumor that Facebook was working on their very own phone. The thinking was that it would compete against Apple and Google and possibly run Android. Facebook came back and saying that this was just a rumor and that there is no such thing as the Facebook phone. But CNET has confirmed that Facebook did reach out to hardware manufactures and carriers about a potential Facebook branded phone. Facebook said they're not building a phone did not give a response about whether or not a Facebook branded phone is in the works. Free is releasing a new service that let you call anyone in the world starting at one cent per minute. The service is available for Nokia now and is coming to iPhone and Android soon. And Amazon wants to educate gamers on motion gaming. The online retailer is releasing a motion gaming 101 section for anyone looking for advice on which system to purchase. It'll have game recommendations, costumer reviews, and interviews with developers and producers explaining details on the PlayStation move, Microsoft Connect and the Wii. If motion control is your thing, check it out. The iPad is relatively new, but apple.com is selling a refurbs on their site now. You can find the tablet in the special deal section and if the word "refurb" does not scare you away, you still get a 1 year warrantee and 50 bucks shave off the regular price. It's also worth mentioning that Apple will includes free shipping on all refurb purchases. And HP is releasing their own pocket cam in October. It records 10 ADP video and has a 2-inch LCD on the back and a Gyro to help with image stabilization since handhelds are not the most steady. It also has a motion detection feature that can start recording video once it sees movement. It'll sell for $159. Those were the headlines for today. I'm Mark Licea for cnet.com. You've just been loaded.
