Here is how to invoke other applications from a WebWorks app using the BlackBerry 7.0 OS:

https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/blackberry.invoke.html

 

If you know the module name of the app want to open, you could provide it to the JavaArguments object:

https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/apis/blackberry.invoke.javaarguments.html

 

If by 'other browser' you mean apps like the Opera mini browser, I expect you would be able to launch it from your app using this technique.
