TechCrunch reports that Facebook is holding a mobile event on Wednesday. Why is this of interest to Mac users? Maybe part of the event will include the unveiling of the long awaited iPad app. Also, an update to the Facebook iPhone app wouldn't hurt.
Then again, there's that Android-based Facebook Phone rumor that's been flying around. Hey, maybe that Jobs/Zuckerberg dinner may have been Jobs's way of trying to feel out the Facebook CEO's plans for his company's mobile future.
In probably unrelated news, Apple is also reported to be holding a "secret summit" meeting with select iOS developers that begins on Tuesday. Looks like next week is going to be a busy one for mobile news...
