Facebook To Unveil Official iPad App on Wednesday?

Two hours ago Facebook sent out invitations to several tech blogs to invite them to a media event focused on “Mobile” on Wednesday at Facebook HQ.

Mobile could mean many things when it comes to Facebook. My first guess is the long-overdue official client for iPad, which Facebook has apparently been working on for months now but decided to not announce at the latest media event. With 8 million iPads now out in the wild, it would be about time to release an official iPad application.

Mobile could also refer to the much rumored Facebook Phone, more Places feature and the rumored “Deals” functionality, as Jason Kincaid at TechCrunch suggests.
