Default Using browser controls within native RIM applications

Please Login to Remove!

Our company is working on developing a real-time, interactive clock control in our BlackBerry application using SVG libraries. We are trying to determine the best technology to use to implement this. We could build it using native controls ourselves, however we would potentially like to re-use this control within desktop web clients for other applications that we develop. We have considered implementing this within a browser control and then leveraging that browser control within our native BlackBerry application.

Does anyone know which would be the better approach (implement natively vs. building it within a browser and leveraging the browser within the native app). Are there performance benefits of one versus the other? Would we expect to encounter usability issues with one versus the other? Ideally we would like to leverage the browser field since it is a re-usable solution for us.

Any feedback would be much appreciated.
