It was originally thought earlier today that the HP TouchPad had been chosen by Facebook and beaten Apple’s iPad to become the first tablet with an official Facebook application installed when it launches this Friday.
But the Facebook application installed on the HP tablet has been developed in house by HP and is the not the official highly anticipated Facebook application everyone is waiting to see. After clarification was sent to Tech Crunch by Facebook to clear up the confusion.
Update: Facebook has reached out to clarify that “this app was not built by Facebook but by HP.” Much like RIM built the Facebook app for the Blackberry Playbook using Facebook platform. I’ve changed the headline to make it more accurate.
