Facebook has just announced the immediate availability of a Java ME version of their popular social networking site. 

The social networking giant has been working in collaboration with Snaptu to enable the delivery of their network to the billions of consumers around the world that carry feature-phones.  According to Facebook's announcement, the application "works on more than 2,500 devices from Nokia, Sony Ericsson, LG and other manufacturers."  The announcement goes on to list some of the key enhancements in the application such as an "easier-to-navigate home screen, contact synchronization, and fast scrolling of photos and friend updates."

The Facebook application is actually one of many applications and utilities that are accessible through Snaptu, including Twitter, Flickr,  Google Calendar and much more!  In fact, Snaptu's tagline is that it "turns your favorite websites into ultra fast mobile apps that work on your phone."
