We’re hearing from multiple Android Community members that a new Facebook application has arrived in the Android Market.  The app seems pretty spartan at present, but does allow access to walls, posting of statuses and commenting.

There’s also a homescreen widget, which allows for posting status updates and browsing those updates of friends.  Meanwhile a live folder can be used to access phone numbers stored through Facebook.

No chat, though, nor many of the features iPhone users have been enjoying, but it’s a start at least.  The app’s development page on Facebook suggests that this isn’t, in fact, an official app, and the early feedback isn’t entirely positive, but the software itself has only just landed in the Android Market so maybe we’ll see more advances after the feedback continues.  Check out the video demo here.
