I have two questions:
1. Will the browser that is coming with the Bold 9000 be available for other (older) BlackBerry models?
2. Besides Ajax support, does the browser in the Bold 9000 have other enhancements? For instance, does it handle Java Script and Style Sheets better?
Thank you in advance.

The updated browser is going to be released with device software v4.6, so any devices running 4.6 or higher will be able to use the new browser.
If you would like to test the browser yourself, you can download the JDE v4.6 Beta (the JDE includes a Bold simulator).

Thank you very much for the information.
I have the BlackBerry 8830 World Edition.
From the About I can see I have v188.8.131.52 (Platform 184.108.40.206)
I'm assuming 4.2 is the version of the device software.
Will I be able to upgrade to 4.6 in this device?
Thank you very much for the great help.

Unfortunately not, 4.6 is only used for our Bold device.
You may be able to upgrade to v4.5 - that device software is available on all 8000-level devices. You can check if your carrier has made 4.5 available for downloading.

For the previous post in regards to debugging, please see the following video for information on our debugging support.
In regards to documentation for the version 4.6 BlackBerry Browser that is on the BlackBerry Bold, the answer is no. This documentation is not available yet.
Update: This documentation is now available here: http://na.blackberry.com/eng/support/docs/subcateg

I am evaluating the capabilities of the embedded browser on the Blackberry Bold (4.6), and I am noticing some differences in the behavior of the browser (http://www.blackberry.com/developers/docs/4.6.0api
(My sample app is based on the BrowserFieldDemo from the SDK samples.)
case Event.EVENT_SET_HTTP_COOKIE :
SetHttpCookieEvent ce = (SetHttpCookieEvent)event;
String cookie = ce.getCookie();
if(cookie == null) cookie = "ERROR";
System.out.println("Cookie: " + cookie);
