As part of the Q&A in today’s announcement, FaceBook CEO Mark Zuckerberg fielded a question about a Facebook App coming to the iPad. His answer? ”iPad is a computer, not a mobile device.”
Apparently later this was watered down to something along the lines of the iPad isn’t as mobile as a phone. Facebooks head of Mobile Products also noted that the ‘explosion of tablets’ isn’t always going to be about just the iPad …
That leads Facebook to believe that committing limited resources to one tablet just doesn’t make sense.
Hmmm, there have always been a large number of rivals in the smartphone arena (and in fact a lot more credible and serious ones than there are for the iPad just now) – and that never stopped Facebook from devoting resources to an iPhone app.
