Default Blackberry 8330 web2.0 compatible?

Please Login to Remove!

I just purchased a Blackberry Curve 8330 and should receive it soon. In the meantime, does anyone know if it's web2.0 compatible? Sorry if it's a dumb question, but I'm ignorant to what that language means. Thanks for any assistance.

Probably not compatable for some Web 2.0 apps. You'll need a lot more device memory, as well as possibly some PC-specific software to enable some apps. I'll settle for Flash for the BB.

Thanks for the reply.

So, I take it by your response, it should handle some web 2.0 apps while rejecting others? I'll settle for a 50/50 chance or worse over no chance. I'm just running a simple (well, fairly simple) admin for a website, and I'd like to be able to do that stuff from anywhere without having to bust open my laptop all the time.

I'm not familiar with web 2.0. If there a url that you can post here and I'll try it and see what happens.

I'm pretty sure sites like YouTube and MySpace are web2.0 sites or sites that use web2.0 applications. I would imagine if the BB Curve 8330 can handle those, it can handle our admin for our website.

Web 2.0 is in the mind. It is the New Internet - social networking, wikis, blogs. It is not something to be compatible with.

Not all web sites work on a BlackBerry. Simple as that.

Hehe... Web 2.0 is in the mind! I never heard it stated like that but you are so correct.

Web 2.0 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Quote:
Web 2.0 is a term describing the trend in the use of World Wide Web technology and web design that aims to enhance creativity, information sharing, and, most notably, collaboration among users. These concepts have led to the development and evolution of web-based communities and hosted services, such as social-networking sites, wikis, blogs, and folksonomies. The term became notable after the first O'Reilly Media Web 2.0 conference in 2004.[2] [3] Although the term suggests a new version of the World Wide Web, it does not refer to an update to any technical specifications, but to changes in the ways software developers and end-users use the Web.

And then, there is Internet 2, which is an entirely different animal.

Internet2 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

This sounds cool:

It furnishes a 100-gigabit network backbone to more than 210 U.S. educational institutions, 70 corporations and 45 non-profit and government agencies.
How about that 100-gigibit network!

Web 2.0 sites usually have heavy doses of JavaScript and AJAX. Some tax the client much harder than old school sites. So, RAM and CPU take a hit. Mobile browsers often can't handle it, but the iPhone generally does a pretty good job with them.

Opera Mini may handle more of it than the BB browser

Web 2.0 is a also a catch phrase thrown around by consultants and CIOs who still run Windows 95 at home, but want to sound "smart".

If I'm not mistaken, Opera works by pulling the site to their server, formatting it for the BB and then sending it on. Essentially you are accessing the site from their server then. The advantage is that you can view many more sites this way and folks swear by it. I've tried it, but really didn't get into it much.

Interesting concept - I'm going to have to try it out. Thanks!

Sorry for the long delay. I use the BB browser for most of my viewing, but for most sites that the bb browser cant handle Opera Mini can. It is not perfect, but it works well for things like banking websites that require a secure login
