Let’s face it — the Facebook for BlackBerry appication isn’t anything to write home about. Most everything it can do can be achieved through simple SMS commands, so it’s really nothing more than looking at an ugly face through some seriously strong beer goggles. When MySpace for BlackBerry was launched a lot of people were impressed with how much it could do, something that brought up feelings of resentment for how little the Facebook app can do. Thankfully word has reached the net that BlackBerry users will be able to upgrade to a revamped Facebook for BlackBerry, specifically version 1.5, in January 2009. Designed for tighter integration with the address book and calendar of the BlackBerry, users will be able to view and save friends phone numbers, birthdays, and events to their calendars. Pretty neat-o, but it really begs the question as to why this wasn’t implemented long ago.
