I was a bit disappointed back in May of 2010 when we caught a rumored roadmap for Facebook 2.0 that did not include Facebook Chat. My sentiment has changed today with some nice leaked screenshots (via N4BB) of what is supposedly Facebook 2.0 for BlackBerry. This version brings some features to the Facebook app that makes it fall better in line with its iPhone and Android clients.
The new version 2.0 of Facebook for BlackBerry is rumored to have:
- Facebook Chat
- UI Refresh
- View friends’ profile info, pages and friends lists
- Improved core app integration
N4BB’s sources are telling them Facebook for BlackBerry 2.0 is targeted for a May 2011 release with a Beta project for March 2011. I know quite a few users who will be psyched to finally get Facebook chat. Hopefully it won’t log you out as often as RIM’s Google Talk client…
