Really stupid question I just haven't found an answer for, sorry!
I'm developing mobileversions of sites that need to look good and function on Blackberry. Unfortunately I do not own a Blackberry, so I am using Adobe Device Central. I'm getting an error on every target="_blank" link that 'Opening an HTML link in a new window is not supported.' and the new page does not load.
I'm thinking that Device Central is a little confused, and even if not, that non-supported HTML is more likely to be ignored than to abort a page load. So, in short, does Blackberry support target=_blank HTML syntax? If it doesn't, does this actually render links non-functional?
Solved! Go to Solution.

We're not building apps, so installing simulators has seemed like a lot of trouble to go through just to see our sites on mobile devices. But since my intuition is telling me Adobe Device Central is somewhat off the mark, we may need to go that route.
More information, like the answer to my original question, will help me decide if Device Central is a viable testing platform, or if we need to find other testing alternatives.

I strongly suggest downloading a simulator and trying things out so you can judge for yourself.
Trying this site on a 6.0 Torch sim reveals that target=_blank works fine:
