Re: HTML5 in Blackberry

 

Yes it does support HTML5.

 

At least from OS5 up (not sure about before).

 

Some of the HTML5 features not supported in OS5 can still be accessed via HTML5 API, and are then handled in alternate way in the background - eg. OS5 Database functionality uses Google Gears API, but a HTML5 layer was added on top of it so that you can code for HTML5 and if its not supported it will handle it in the background.

 

The API link Jeff provided gives you the details on which HTML5 features are supported, and on which operating systems, (and what permissions are required to use them)
