Research In Motion Really Pumping Facebook For BlackBerry

Earlier today, Blackberry Sync announced that that Telus is launching the BlackBerry Pearl 8130 on November 2nd. They’ve since updated that announcement with more information, pictures, and spec sheets pretaining to the Telus 8130.

What I find really interesting is that the first thing listed in the Telus BlackBerry Pearl 8130 features list is the Facebook for BlackBerry application. Granted, you can download Facebook for BlackBerry for free. The fact, however, that RIM is pre-loading the application on new BlackBerry Pearls at the factory tells me that RIM is really serious about the consumer market.
