updated KB: detecting the BlackBerry browser

Hi Web devs,

 

For those planning on supporting BlackBerry 7 when it comes out, know that we've recently updated the "How to detect the BlackBerry browser" knowledge base article to highlight the fact that the BlackBerry 7 User-Agent string is similar in format to that of the BlackBerry 6 UA (and Tablet OS for that matter) but has minor differences - such as OS version and model number:

As a friendly reminder, when detecting browser user agents, please focus on matching patterns and not exact strings (as the UA values change with each OS release).

 

Cheers,

Adam
