Facebook Android Application Now Has Chat

Facebook has updated their Android application so that it now has chat built-in with push notifications. Previously Facebook Chat could have been accessed using the Trillian for Android application. The Facebook Chat on Android has the full buddy list and open chats at the top for quicker access. The application is available for free — search Facebook on your Android device in the Android Market. [Droid-Life]
