Facebook already has a brilliant messenger App for chatting with your Facebook friends on the iPhone and as 9to5Mac now reports, a native iPad App is also being developed. The Facebook Messenger iPad App will be a dedicated IM client for Facebook and will offer one-to-one chatting and realtime push notifications. While the App appears exactly like a blown up version of the iPhone App, it serves a very specific market and can be used for quick chat instead of the large Facebook native App.
Sources tell 9to5Mac that the release date is yet unconfirmed and it could probably be that Facebook just uses it internally. A new iPhone App is also in the works which would include the ability to Skype video chat with online Facebook friends.
