We all know that Facebook 2.0 has been in the Beta Zone for some time now. The app has had a few updates and is very close to releasing publicly in App World. Today we have found out that this is very true, in fact so true it is coming out tomorrow.
Here is the full announcement about tomorrows release:
Please be advised that Facebook® for BlackBerry® smartphones 2.0 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.
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 have no idea which version will be released. We are unsure if they will just make the newest Beta Zone version public or if they will be releasing an update at the same time. Hopefully, we see a new update. That would be great for the Beta Zone users also!
