Facebook, the social networking gaint, is all set to launch a new feature next week, possibly in the mobile or tablet arena, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said.

Reuters reporting that Zuckerberg told reporters in a visit to Facebook's Seattle office on Wednesday that the company planned to "launch something awesome" next week.

He said the project had been developed at the 40-person Seattle office, Facebook's only major engineering center outside of its Palo Alto, California headquarters.

There has been speculation in technology blogs in recent weeks about various mobile products in development at Facebook, including the release of a long-awaited Facebook app for Apple Inc's iPad and a specialized app for photo-sharing on the iPhone. However, the "launch" might be one those several things.

It might also be the product code named "Project Spartan", an HTML5- based service that could be a rival to Apple's app store.

A Facebook spokesman declined to provide further details about Zuckerberg's comments.
