Zuckerberg: No Facebook phone

Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg quashed rumours his firm is ready to release a phone to compete with Google and Apple.

The 26-year-old said he is only interested in “deeply integrating” Facebook services into existing phones and said he would have fired the source of the leak.

But he refused to completely rule out a Facebook phone, saying he couldn’t predict what the social network will do down the line.

Zuckerberg was named ahead of both Steve Jobs and Rupert Murdoch in the Forbes Rich List this week.
