Move over beta...eBay for BlackBerry is officially here!
Today RIM has announced that eBay for BlackBerry is official. Sitting at 188.8.131.52, the UI is very smooth, and loading times are pretty instantaneous. I have to tip my hat off too RIM for doing such a great job with this app. Mauricio over @BBrocks stumbled across the updated features on the BlackBerry support page, and the list is as follows:

- My eBay activity summary – keep a close eye on all your activities
- PayPal® compatible – pay for your item right from your BlackBerry smartphone
- Free, easy access – download on the BlackBerry App World™ storefront
New features in the latest version:
