Is Facebook’s New Android App Almost Ready?

A while ago, Facebook announced that it will have a renewed focus on Android, as more users worldwide sign onto the site from devices using that operating system. Now there are rumblings that the new Android application could be released soon.

Apparently, someone within Facebook told Engadget that the app is in its final round of testing. If we hear anything from Facebook, we will update this story. Here’s the tip from Engadget:

Remember when Mark Zuckerberg said that Facebook’s HTML5 Android app was a mistake? Well, one of our tipsters, embedded deep inside the social network, has let us know that the native version for Google’s mobile OS has entered final testing. As such, it won’t be long before the software is ready for consumption by the public at large, give or take an angry Winklevii or two.

Earlier today, we reported that worldwide, Android is the mobile device of choice for Facebook users. After Facebook released several upgrades to iOS devices, many people called for an update to the Android app. The social network’s employees reportedly had to carry around Android phones in an effort to brainstorm fixes and other improvements.
