Research in Motion has announced that there’s a new beta release of Facebook 2.0 for BlackBerry which adds a few new features including the ability to receive push notifications and other data over WiFi, thus alerting the world to the fact that the previous beta only worked over a cellular connection. Who knew?
Sure, the feature probably should have been included right out of the gate, but better late than never… and we are talking about beta software after all.
Other improvements in Facebook 2.0 beta 3 for BlackBerry include the ability to delete posts and comments using your mobile device, and a prompt that lets you decide whether you want to delete a message from the Facebook web site or you just want to make it disappear from your phone.
Facebook 2.0 for BlackBerry is available as a free download from the BlackBerry Beta Zone, but you’ll need to generate a new keycode if you’re been beta testing an earlier build.
