Okay, this is a bit slow and requires a lot of processing power and data downloading, but its quite useful if you are not in a rush, as well. As the networks in North America progress to faster bandwidths, I see this as being useful in the future - but not now, unless you have no issues with patience (I think most people with BlackBerry devices lack this virtue, however).

It may or may not work for your device. It does work for the 7100t, though.

Mark, I think you may take a liking for this, although its nothing like it is on the PC.

It works on my 7290. Slow but useful.

BTW, I'm using MDS from my BES at work, so that may be a difference. I'm not sure. Here is my Browser Configuration (Browser Options):

Content Mode: WML & HTML
Show Images: On WML & HTML Pages
Show Image Placeholders: No
Emulation Mode: BlackBerry
- Support HTML Tables
- Use Foreground And Background Colors
- Use Background Images
- Support JavaScript
- Support Style Sheets
Style sheets media type: Handheld

SVG and Flash could be checked, but I don't really have the use for it.

I got it in my 7290 with no problems but can't get it to do anything. All I get is "No results" enter a new search. Do I need to adjust any of the preferences to make it work? Am on a BES.
