Seems like BlackBerry is indeed making an effort to incorporate OS X developers into the picture. There isn't an emulator, but it does offer support for running apps directly on the phone and debugging through eclipse - which is a much better way of doing it anyway - seeing that the BB emulators are so bloody slow!
If you are hell-bent on running a simulator, I have done is successfully by running the simulator through Wine. There is a great article on how to do the simulator through wine bit here: http://www.azizuysal.com/2009/07/blackberry-develo
Many many thanks for such effort and news!
Appreciate it a lot!
About to grab it, and the wine option is neat for some quick problem solving too...
Do you know if OS 4 simulators are available over at wine feature?

Unbelievable my friend.
They don't care about their developers.
They are focused on big fishes, that is what it seems.
I would like to release one app I've developed in all hardware models and it seems their API is broken between OS versions
Try buffered player demo, on OS 4 it runs smoothly, on OS 5 and up it breaks.
It seems they don't have interest in fixing this as it has been more than months that I've supplied a bug report and no answer were given. Nor an alternate method to bypass the given limitation.
Regarding their reply it is almost a joke if you get it.
Do a sane thing, migrate to other models of smartphones, their market is sky rocketing and seems bb got stuck in the whereabouts.
Even J2me is more productive than their API, just because it works...

Just wondering, can we reuse any macos tools to run them on linux ?
