31% of people want a Facebook Phone: 56% do not

6% couldn't care less

Last week PC Advisor hosted a poll to see what people thought about the new Facebook Phone. Notably, an encouraging 31 percent of people thought the Facebook Phone was a good idea and admitted that they wanted a device with the Facebook Home feature installed on.

However, it wasn't all good news for Facebook and its new venture into a heavily Android OS integrated app, as a collective 56 percent of pollers revealed that they were against the idea of Facebook having anymore control or interference with their smartphone.

The 56 percent figure was made up from two of the poll's voting options. These were "Not interested - I'm happy with my current Facebook use and don't want to give up any further data", which took 25 percent of the vote. The second option, which gained 31 percent of the poll selected the option "Take it away - Facebook is for losers". Take a look at our Facebook Home FAQ: What you need to know article too.

The remaining 13 percent of the vote was split between "Not sure - I do use Facebook but I don't understand the benefits of having a dedicated Facebook Phone" (8%), and "I have no opinion on the idea of a Facebook Phone" (6%)/

2064 people took part in our "How interested are you in the proposed Facebook Phone" poll.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
