There’s a new Facebook app for BlackBerry available in the Blackberry Beta Zone. Version 1.9 gives you more ways to interact with your contacts on the popular social networking service. Here are a few of the highlights in the latest version:

  • There’s an option to view just your Facebook inbox or combine your messages with your BlackBerry messages inbox.
  • You can synchronize data between your BlackBerry Facebook inbox and the web.
  • The app now supports Facebook Search, and it ties into the Universal Search BlackBerry function.
  • Facebook 1.9 also includes tweaks to the friends list, page list, and navigation bar.

Facebook 1.9 for BlackBerry is still in beta, but the full version will include even more features including support for Facebook Places.
