Facebook for BlackBerry smartphones v1.9 now gets Facebook Places, will be available for download in BlackBerry App World (North America only) within the next 24 hours!

With Facebook Places, you can use your BlackBerry smartphone to conveniently share where you're, what you're doing, and who you're with. While you're checking in, you can tag a friend and include a comment to let your friends know what you're up to. You can also see where your friends are and what they're doing.

BlackBerry Facebook Places

Users can check into locations within 2 kilometers, and you'll also be able to tag friends who are along for the ride. Just tap the Places icon on the app's toolbar, choose a previously used location (or add a new one), and add your comment.

The updated Facebook app also allows you to search friends and Pages, view your messages, and access your Pages list from the Friends screen.
