Research In Motion (RIM) (NASDAQ:RIMM)(TSX:RIM) today launched Facebook(R) for BlackBerry(R) Smartphones, an exciting new BlackBerry software application that enables fast, streamlined and optimized mobile access to the popular Facebook social utility using a BlackBerry smartphone. The application leverages the push-based BlackBerry system architecture and Facebook Platform to create an unparalleled mobile experience for Facebook users.
Shame that the download page only supports IE, and the Active X control checks for the Blackberry Desktop software before downloading the file – so it must be done on the Windows box that you use to sync your Blackberry.
User-friendly this is not!
Update1: So, I still hate the download process, particularly that it requires IE and a USB connection to your Blackberry. BUT… oh what a sweet application. Looks great, works well, is very quick. I like it!
