Except for perhaps wireless messaging, the most exciting feature of wireless handheld devices such as the BlackBerry 7100 is the ability to browse the wireless Web. To have the entirety of the Web at your fingertips from just about anywhere is quite an empowering feeling. And unlike the vast majority of mobile phones with wireless web support, the BlackBerry 7100 has a screen large enough to make real browsing possible. Sure, you can still visit mobile-specific websites that cater to devices with limited screen sizes—and I encourage you to do so. However, you should also visit websites designed for normal desktop computers. Not all of them are a joy to view on the BlackBerry screen, but many of them are very accessible. This chapter explores the wireless Web and how you can enhance your BlackBerry experience by jacking into it.
