As you type into the input field, no key events are reported. (Compare against a desktop browser to see the expected events.)
Apparently, BlackBerry Java developers can control this functionality at the individual field level by setting the 'TextField.NO_COMPLEX_INPUT' option on a TextField:
Is there a property I can set on an <input type="text"> element to tell the BlackBerry browser to turn off Predictive Input for this field? In testing this, I've found that I can make it work through the extremely heavy-handed expedient of going into Keyboard settings and turning off 'Show predictions and suggestions' globally, but it's probably not realistic to ask users to do that.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Yes you can disable predictive text. Use the "autocomplete" property and set it to off, like this:
<input type="text" id="txtText" name="txtText" autocomplete="off" title="Any characters allowed" value="Hello World"/>

Awesome, couldn't be any easier. I just confirmed that this fixes my structured edit controls in the PlayBook browser; thanks Adam!
