It looks like pages are soon going to be able to showcase their carefully-constructed Timelines on mobile devices, as they appear to be slowly rolling out across the network.

I haven't seen any changes, as pages on both my iOS app and the mobile web interface still show the old profile view. But Inside Facebook has obtained confirmation from an Aussie that pages are indeed switching over to Timeline.

The Timeline for pages on mobile mimics the design of Timeline for users on mobile, with the large cover photo at the top and the smaller profile picture st the bottom left-hand corner. Under the page name are the "likes" and "talking about this" tallies that appear on pages' Timelines on desktop.

Under that is a large "about" box, and under that is a giant page-wise "like" button.

Timeline for pages on the desktop rolled out back in February, and brands have taken the opportunity to play with the format to create some pretty interesting landing pages for fans.

Facebook told IF that "We aren’t making any changes to mobile pages today, but we’re dedicated to making the experience on mobile consistent with that on desktop soon.”

We'll let you know the moment we start seeing pages shift over to Timeline on mobile here in the States.
