It’s finally here. Point your BlackBerry’s Browser to mobile.blackberry.com to download now!

The anticipated update to the popular Facebook app for BlackBerry handhelds was released today. The update includes a number of new features that better integrate your BlackBerry to your Facebook account. Notably, your contact list can now be matched up to your Facebook contacts and their information exchanged. The association between Facebook and BlackBerry contacts will allow data such as pictures, birthdays and company information to be stored on the BlackBerry. Other features released in the update include message list integration of actions occurring within Facebook such as messages, wall posts and friend requests.

The updated release is by no means an overhaul of the app. Visually, everything in the app should remain relatively unchanged. The new features are a welcome change of pace for the app with more to come in the 2.0 release. Facebook 1.5 also supports French, Italian German Spanish, Portuguese, Polish, Dutch, Russian, Czech, Traditional/Simplified Chinese, Japanese and Korean according to a RIM press release regarding the update.

Facebook 1.5 is available via mobile.blackberry.com or on the BlackBerry App World.
