How to launch the email client

How do you launch the email client? In Android, we could do the following:


String[] email = new String[] { "someperson@someplace.com" };

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_SEND);

intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_EMAIL, email);

intent.putExtra(Intent.EXTRA_SUBJECT, "Email Subject goes here");




But this logic does nothing, no exceptions, no display.

Re: How to launch the email client

If you are using a BlackBerry 10 Simulator or Dev Alpha, this is expected as BlackBerry Hub is not included with the SDK builds.
