So with the new Facebook app landing on the Palm Pre soon, I couldn't help but to think about whether or not it's going to be free or as a paid app. The reason being is that the Facebook app for the iPhone, Blackberry, and Android are all free. It's only the 3rd party/independent Facebook apps that people have to pay far. Also, I believe the Blackberry Facebook app is an "in-house" developed app.
So with that said, I am hoping that this precedence of having the official Facebook app for any mobile device will be free - since so many people have Facebook to begin with.
I'm not a Facebook nut. But thinking of this on a strategic level, if Palm were to charge for this app (and I heard it's not all that great compared to the iPhone version), you know the media will jump all over that and the iPhone fans are going to drool over that news.
Just my 2 cents...
