Android fans, no fear here - HTML 5 works just as well on the iOS devices as they do on Android phones. However, Techcrunch is reporting that Apple and Facebook may be presenting the new mobile HTML 5 platform that Facebook has been working on.
What's interesting is that Apple and Facebook, one consumer tech giant and one privacy violating giant, are teaming up after a rumored fallout over Apple's failed Ping social network. And they're working together because they feel they have to: to go up against Google.
Even if Facebook does eventually release an app for the iPad, I reckon we'll see one for Android as well soon after. And this HTML 5 platform should be pretty viable on most mobile platforms, especially iOS 5 and Android since they both use Webkit as the basis for their browsers.
