Okay this is a nice bump for all Facebook fans. Brian just let me know that RIM has released version 18.104.22.168 of their free Facebook application. This is newer than the 1.5.0 version that was leaked online before. I don’t really have a way to check which devices it is available for but I can confirm it is available for the Bold in the App World or the link below:
