All berries run off of the berry os which is written in java. So theoretically, any berry is a brew phone

uhhh...I thought BREW was Qualcom's platform, and you write code for it in C++.

I've never heard of the RIM OS being described as a BREW platform.

BREW phones that implement J2ME platforms can, in many cases, be compromised with simple tools. I was able to configure my Moto KRZR to run any java app I cared to install on it without the normal user challenges. I can't see RIM using BREW.
My other Blackberry is a PlayBook.
