No Facebook iPad App

Mark Zuckerberg has more or less confirmed that there will be no iPad app for Facebook, saying the iPad “is a computer.” As big as the iPad’s screen may be, the browsing experience is still way different, and Facebook’s mouse-oriented UI just doesn’t cut it for the iPad.

Steve Jobs On 7-Inch Tablets And Android

I agree with him, as 7 inches is truly too small to be a worthy iPad competitor. Even on the iPad’s 10-inch screen I feel ever so slightly restricted, and having two different screen sizes for the iPads will make all the devs hang themselves. It’s already a chore to develop for three devices: iPad, iPhone 4, and older iPhones. It’ll be three devices once Apple puts the retina into the iPad 2. Going back to the topic, this basically confirms that Apple will not be making a smaller iPad soon.
