The facebook integration on the N97 is one of its most awaited features and Nokia had recently given us a glimpse of it via the Interactive Demo that went up a few days ago. The folks at Last100 have taken a look at what’s on offer and based on the screenshots it looks like a pretty slick application with great functionality packed in.
Here is a small list of what the application can do. Please note that I have compiled this list based on screenshots of a demo, so the final application should at least have this functionality and hopefully some more.
- Update your status.
- Manage friend requests and ‘pokes’.
- Send and receive inbox based messages.
- Write on a friend’s wall.
- Upload photos directly from the device.
- Follow your friends’ feeds (updates, photo uploads and so on).
- View and copy events from your facebook account to your N97’s calender.
Hopefully Nokia will not let the application rot on the N97 alone and bring it to the S60 3rd Edition and well as other 5th Edition devices. In a recently released Ovi Store picture, the screen has Facebook application as a free download. Hopefully that’ll be Nokia’s gift to older devices and not that stupid visual bookmark.
