RIM’s Facebook for BlackBerry app has needed an overhaul for some time now and while the latest updates and leaks are nice, they leave a lot to be desired. Facebook for BlackBerry version 188.8.131.52 was just leaked but it looks like a 2.0 version is, thankfully, already in the works. As you can see in the leaked screenshots above, the version 2.0 app will look a lot better and include some nice additions:
- Facebook Chat
- UI Refresh
- View friends’ profile info, pages and friends lists
- Improved core app integration
Now the question is when we can expect version 2.0 to go official, get leaked or get released as a beta in the BlackBerry Beta Zone. I’m guessing it will get leaked before anything else but according to this leak, the official release date is set for May 2011 with a beta being officially available in March 2011. What do you think of Facebook for BlackBerry 2.0 so far?
