Mobile phone network Three has announced it is now offering their customers the new Facebook Java-based mobile application and without charging for any data usage.
This backs off the news from last week, where Facebook unveiled the ‘Facebook for Every Phone’ app which is aimed at budget handsets, by offering up a similar set of features that is only found on the higher-end mobile phone applications.
Three is sponsoring the launch by allowing their customers to download and use this application until January 31st 2012, without incurring any data charges.
Facebook initially stated their partner networks will only be offering 90 days of free access to the application, where Three is extending the deal to a full six months instead.
Three continues to offer to their customers free access to the website 0.facebook.com, which is seen by most as the precursor to the Java app – as it too was aimed at low costing phones that cannot run feature rich applications.
The Facebook for Every Phone app delivers the likes of faster browsing of News Feed stories and photos, easy photo uploads, synchronisation of local address book contacts with Facebook friends whilst optimised to use minimal data and provide a fast user experience.
