Mark Zuckerberg teased reporters on a tour of Facebook's Seattle office today by announcing that the company will "launch something awesome" next week, reports Reuters, which guesses it's in the "mobile or tablet arena." Let the speculation begin:

  • BGR: "We suspect it’s going to be the new iPhone photo-sharing service that we saw just last week. ... It’s entirely possible that Zuckerberg will also take the wraps off of his company’s native Facebook iPad app, since it would likely fit well into the photo-sharing ecosystem."

  • CNET: "It could be Facebook's long-awaited iPad application. The company currently offers an iPhone app, but iPad owners have so far been forced to use the full site."
  • Business Insider: "If we had to guess it would be an iPad app."
