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
that Facebook is, indeed, readying an iPad app.
Anonymous sources reportedly close to Facebook's plans told
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.

Because 100% touch interfaces are so sluggish and impractical that, instead of not clinging to touch based on apple's advertising success, the industry has decided to simplify software as much as possible to make things workable for touch platforms.
Now I can get less done in more time!
