Despite iPad being "a computer, not a mobile device"

"IPad is a computer, not a mobile device," Facebook Founder and CEO Mark Zuckerberg famously said last fall in response to a question about whether a Facebook app for iPad would ever come to fruition.

It appears that Zuck is backpedaling on those words, as The New York Times reports that Facebook is, indeed, readying an iPad app.

Anonymous sources reportedly close to Facebook's plans told NYT that the social media company will be unveiling a free app for iPad that has been "carefully designed and optimized" for the device.

Zuckerberg's statement from last November is additionally befuddling because of its timing. The report says that the iPad app has been in development for nearly a year, and that Zuck himself has played a key role in the process.

In addition to the app's slick design, the Facebook Chat and Facebook Groups have been overhauled, and the app allows photos shot with the iPad's built-in cameras to be directly uploaded to Facebook.

A person who reportedly has seen the app had this to say: "The photo and video experience is amazing, offering full resolution and full-screen images."

Both Facebook and Apple declined to comment further.




"This week I got an iPhone. This weekend I got four chargers so I can keep it charged everywhere I go and a land line so I can actually make phone calls." -- Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg
