Launching market page for app

Is launching the market page the same as in Android? In Android, I would do the following to launch the market to our app:


String sUri = "market://details?id=com.companyname.productname"; // Replace with whatever the app id is

Intent intent = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_VIEW, Uri.parse(sUri));



Currently this launches the BlackBerry World app in the simulator, but to an error page ("There was a problem loading this Page, due to a network error."). The BlackBerry World app itself does work, so I don't think it is actually a network error.


Might be that we haven't uploaded our app yet, so the id doesn't exist. Anyone know if this will work once we get to uploading the app? Or is there a different Intent needed?

Yes this will work once your application is in BlackBerry World.
