8. The Web and MDS > 93. Simulate Any BlackBerry

Simulate Any BlackBerry

Is that image too wide for a BlackBerry screen? Is it going to look the same on a 7100g as it does on the 7290 attached to your hip? Use the simulator to find out.

Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get each and every BlackBerry device that is released to put it through the paces? Does the entire web development staff need a BlackBerry solely to see how their work appears on a device? I think your money is more wisely spent in other ways and so does RIM.

The BlackBerry Simulator is not just a tool for hardcore application developers that are holed up in a dark room with black poster board over the windows. It comes in quite handy for web developers as well—even your help desk could find some use for it. It comes with a slimmed down version of the Mobile Data Service, so you can get extremely close to the actual end user experience without shelling out hundreds of dollars for a device and service.
