View Full Version : Creating "Blackberry friendly" websites?

05-24-2005, 12:05 PM
Hi there:

I am a n00b to this site but was advised to come here for info.

We operate a large and busy website that has event listings information on it. I would like to format certain pages of the site to be 'blackberry friendly" : so that the pages show up nicely in the BB internet browser screen as opposed to wrapping and flowing and messing up the page layout for the BB user.

Do any white papers exist for optimizing websites for BB visitors?

Or if not, how wide should the pages be in pixels so as not to wrap (I am not currently a BB user, sorry).

Also is there any code that exists to automatically forward a BB vistor to these specially optimized webpages as opposed to going to the default pages?

RIM has some web page design guidelines available in the development section of their site. For the most part, it supports standard WML and if the carrier is nice enough, they allow regular HTML browsing.
