We have developed a flight planning application for access by wireless devices. However. it does not look good on a Blackberry and it doesn't work with the Pearl keyboard.

1. How do I get it to work with the Pearl keyboard
2. How do I recognise that the user has a Blackberry so I can customise the screen to give the best look and feel

Many thanks in advance

What protocol are you using for communications? I did a bit WAP of a hack for my Noki 6100 that continues to look OK on my Blackberry (8700 followed by 8800).

The web browser identifies itself as a blackberry in the (I think) browser ID string and looks like this:
BlackBerry8700/4.1.0 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/107

I haven't checked but I would assume a similar string identifies the WAP browser.

From what little I've seen J2ME midlets written for cell phones typically don't look their best, or as well as one would expect, on Blackberries. I don't know why.
