Facebook v2.0 Beta update carries along cross-channel messaging support & more
At this point in the game, if you’re not a BlackBerry Beta Zone member, then you’re missing out of some huge software updates for Facebook for BlackBerry that brings forth some exciting new features and functionality.

Today, RIM announced that they’ve released the fourth software update for the beta version of Facebook for BlackBerry v2.0. Naturally, you can expect to see some new goodies and features that further refine the total Facebook experience. Specifically, it features enhanced notifications, enhanced integration with BlackBerry native apps, in-app error reporting, and a new Touch Toolbar that offers quick access to common functions for touchscreen BlackBerry smartphones.

Additionally, the new cross-channel messaging system will more than likely be the biggest benefit for long time users because its allows users to share Facebook content across BlackBerry Messaging Applications – such as sending news feeds to things like Twitter, BBM, SMS, and email.

So if you happen to be a member of BlackBerry Beta Zone, you can download the update right now, but if you’re not, you can always signup for free. So what are you waiting for?

Its good to see RIM still keeping up the development of the Playbook. I had mine for a month, but ended up getting frustrated and sold it, as the email client and Android app runner never eventuated - not to mention, RIM have failed to really support the Playbook in Australia. Shame really, the Playbook was a nice unit to hold and the screen was really bright. My newly purchased Xoom 3G does the job though, and although the UI is a little more laggy in general stuff, its a much more complete tablet.
