Hi everyone, i have this simple doubt, im starting with blackberry programming, i already checked the blackberry docs and examples, got the eclipse plugin and i like the API and everything,
but i wonder how many you can do just with javeME, maybe that way it would be portable to other devices.
So my cuestion is how many can be done for blackberry just with javaME?,
can you acces to network? bluetoth, mail, etc... and portable to other devices.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Bluetooth, network connections, audio, etc. are mostly JavaME/J2ME portable.
There are many classes that are specific to the BlackBerry that you simply cannot do with just J2ME/JavaME without recreating the code yourself or finding libraries to do so.
If you are going to develop for more platforms, I'd say you should find as many J2ME classes you can use and if and only if you need a BlackBerry-specific class, then you should use it.
This should bring you the most portability.
