Research in Motion has just announced that they have launched Facebook For BlackBerry. The application which will first appear on T-Mobile will allow BlackBerry users to wirelessly send and receive messages, photos, pokes, and Wall posts and the really cool thing is that Facebook for BlackBerry is not just a browser application, but, leverages the BlackBerry’s push-based architecture to deliver information to your device.
Facebook is one of the fastest growing web destinations among BlackBerry smartphone users and it has become an important element in the evolving fabric of personal communications,” said Mike Lazaridis, President and Co-CEO at Research In Motion. “Facebook and RIM share a vision for enhanced mobile communications and social networking based on open, standards-based platforms and this has allowed us to produce a rich mobile application for Facebook users that leverages the push-based architecture, multimedia features and industry-leading usability of the BlackBerry solution.
Facebook for BlackBerry will be available as a free BlackBerry download and will be available later today at www.facebook.com.
