Updated Facebook application for BlackBerry coming in 2009

Updated Facebook application for BlackBerry coming in 2009
There's no doubt that Facebook and MySpace are quite popular in today's "always on" world, and Research In Motion made a wise move when they joined the Facebook revolution a year ago by offering an application for their phones. It is quite functional, and allows the user to upload pictures and create photo galleries on the go, update their status, and accept friend requests.

If the program is something that you use on a daily basis, then be prepared for January of 2009, when Facebook for BlackBerry version 1.5 launches. New features include:

  • New Account Creation - the ability to create a new Facebook account directly on the BlackBerry handheld.
  • Access and Manage Facebook Phone Book - the ability to view friends phone numbers, request friends phone numbers, publish your phone number and even add these to your BlackBerry address book.
  • Facebook Birthday and BlackBerry Calendar Link - the ability to automatically import & link friends birthdays in to the BlackBerry Calendar as part of the Facebook Friend List linking
  • Facebook Event Calendar and Blackberry Calendar Link - the ability to save Facebook events into the BlackBerry Calendar. Facebook events will be differentiated by a different color and an event reminder notification may be set up.

The only thing I'd like added is the instant messanger for facebook, else theres not enough I can do on it to make it something I'd use on a regular basis.
