Interesting how the very week that Google became a hardware maker with the closing of its acquisition of Motorola Mobility, there’s talk of another Internet giant making a similar move.

The New York Times’ Nick Bilton reports today, citing unnamed sources, that Facebook is hoping to release its own smartphone by next year.

Bilton’s sources include Facebook employees and several engineers who have been sought out by recruiters there, as well as people briefed on Facebook’s plans, he says. Those briefed on the plans told Bilton that the company has already hired more than six “former Apple software and hardware engineers who worked on the iPhone, and one who worked on the iPad.”
