Facebook Will Launch In-Browser Video Chat Next Week In Partnership With Skype

TechCrunch: "Earlier this week Facebook while visiting Seattle CEO Mark Zuckerberg tipped off Seattle press that the company would be launching an “awesome” new product next week that has been built by Facebook’s Seattle team.

The office that is creating the "big news" is doing mobile apps.

I'd think they are going to announce an iPad app or something like that, maybe with Skype integration. However I'm not that excited about what they are launching.
