Palm Updates Facebook App In The Beta Feed, Adds Facebook Video Support

We were pleasantly surprised by the significant upgrade Palm made to its Facebook app a few weeks back, one that brought us the ability to view profiles, check events, manage our inboxes, and more.  The newest iteration, currently available in the Beta channel, brings the ability to view Facebook video (something the iPhone app can't do), utilize shortcut keys, and use enhanced mailbox management options:

On the heels of the release of Facebook 1.1, comes the first Facebook Beta application with some cool new features such as Facebook video support – play Facebook videos in your stream, Shortcut keys – jump to sections by holding down the SYM key and : N = news stream, P = photos, S = search, I = inbox, U = your profile, E = events;Facebook comments stand out colored Facebook blue and access updates and joining messages and Sent mail, along with a bunch of bug fixes and enhanced error messages.

The Developer Relations Team, who have used the rewrite of the app as an exercise in "dogfooding", have promised that they will iterate on the app early and often. They're definitely making good on their word. 

Update: Ben and Dion have a post up detailing the update. As they note, "Beta means beta," so don't panic if there are bugs in the app.
