New facebook app for BlackBerry

I saw Simon wrote about the new Facebook app for BlackBerry, discovered by a BGR ninja. The new Facebook looks better but more importantly, it’s more BlackBerry friendly. The app works with your messages, calendar, and contacts, better than the old version. For example, Facebook is putting together a Phonebook app which gathered up all of your friends’ available phone numbers into one place, and once it’s out, the app will make sure your address book stays up to date. Expect calendars and notifications to be much more fluid as well.

    It’s not released for download just yet Andy. Sounds like it will be April before we’ll be able to get it.

    I currently have a Blackberry World Edition from Verizon - thinking about upgrading to the Storm (now that I hear a few software upgrades have come out to address bug fixes). I currently use the facebook app and enjoy it. Does anyone know if the facebook application works on the Storm? And most importantly, the facebook app has a function that allows users to upload photos - does anyone know if that works on the Storm? I’ve never done on it my current BB as it has no camera.

    I’ve tried the Facebook App on Blackberry Bold 9000 via ATT and it will NOT work with just Wifi, you must have the data plan. I’m finding out a lot of apps will not work with just wifi alone.
