Official Facebook app for Android

It could be happening by the end of this week, says Tech Crunch. And while the program will be missing some capabilities that the current iPhone version has (let alone what's in the works), many are viewing this as another sign of the impending Android/iPhone stand-off.

Official native programs are much more appealing and visible than third-party hacks are to the public - especially those that come pre-loaded. Recent hints from the myTouch website and Sony Ericsson Rachael video indicate that Facebook just might be on board at first boot. Check out the images below, which I snagged from androidandme. (Watching all the big boys who said Android was a waste of time change their tune doesn't hurt Googs any either.)

Word on function is that a missing inbox will be compensated by better stream integration. I hope we get a few surprizes, but I like the port of iPhone's app for Android, Fbook, for now - although Twitter has basically taken over the old Facebook time in my day. I'll review it when it's out.
