facebook-2-5
RIM has had the Facebook 2.0 sitting in Beta Zone for quite awhile. We’ve received word that the app should (finally) officially launch in App Worldtomorrow. Here’s the rundown:

Please be advised that Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones2.0 app is scheduled to release on July 26, 2011* in the BlackBerry® App World™ storefront.  You can learn more about the product and features by viewing the training and support documentation below.Key Features:Facebook Chat – Facebook Chat is fully integrated with BlackBerry smartphones, so users can start a conversation within the Facebook app or right from the message list on their device. Users never need to worry about missing a chat message since they’ll be notified of new chat messages even when they’re not using the Facebook app.

Brand New User Interface – Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones features a sleek new design which includes a new navigation grid, a notifications bar that borrows from the BlackBerry 6 “Today View” which summarizes all Facebook notifications, Messages, Friend Requests and Chats all in one handy location, and enhanced profile viewing.

WiFi Support – Users can stay connected with friends and enjoy the full functionality of the Facebook app for BlackBerry smartphones while in a Wi-Fi hotspot.

Core Integration – Facebook for BlackBerry is integrated with the BlackBerry message list, BlackBerry Contacts app, BlackBerry calendar, BlackBerry browser, and is now also integrated with BBM.

Redefined Notifications – Users will now be notified of polled items (notifications that aren’t delivered through BlackBerry push technology), such as ‘Likes’ and Event Wall posts.

We’re not sure which version will officially release, but we’re glad to finally know it’s at least tomorrow. It’s about time they release it to the world, as people still aren’t familiar with or use Beta Zone.

  1. The application is very delicate, soft and just looks much better as a whole. All menus are loaded quickly and even feed loads much faster than a torch. Improved navigation and easy to use menu system, I think this new app will be a winner with avid “Facebookers” on their BlackBerry devices.

  2. I can’t download facebook 2.0 on my BB curve 8520, v 4.6.1.272 (platform 4.2.0.118). Everytime I try downloading it, it returns with “sorry your phone doesn’t have the system requirements needed for facebook”

  3. Same, so can the blackberry bold 520 not download this new facebook ?
