In a surprising move, Facebook won’t be creating an application to run on T-Mobile’s G1 Android-powered smartphone, even though it is available for the iPhone and BlackBerry. Considering this, Facebook fans who are in the market for a new phone will probably pass on the G1.
Facebook commented that Google or another third party will have to develop the application for them, as they don’t want to dedicate any resources toward developing an app for Android. If you want to take a paranoid look at the situation, consider this. Facebook is ad-served and invested in by Microsoft. Make of that what you will, but just because your paranoid, doesn’t mean they aren’t out to deny you a phone app.
