I've been using the mobile version of Facebook for about a month. I've found it extremely useful. You cannot do everything with it that the full version of Facebook allows. When you get to a part that the BB app doesn't support (like browsing a friend's profile) it throws you out to the regular Facebook which I believe is the mobile version as well.

I did a quick writeup on it when the app first came out. Some people have reported that it impacts their battery life but I have not seen that:

Facebook for Blackberry Available Now at Gear Diary


If you prefer not to wade through the article, here are the links for downloading:

Facebook for Blackberry - OTA Install:

If anyone is having problems with the OTA install of FB, please make sure that you turn OFF your wifi, and set your browser to "internet browser"

This is the only thing that has allowed me to install it so far.
