Default Java Hearts

Please Login to Remove!

I am a Hearts (card game) junkie. A few co workers and I play on a web site that you can just jump in at any time and play. I can't load it on the BB browser or Opera mini 3.0.

Here is the site: Multiplayer Hearts Card Game

I dont know much about java or java phones, but aren't BBs java phones? And this Hearts site is a java site.

Can anyone shed some light?

BTW I use a Blackberry Pearl.

That Website is using an embedded java applet to run the hearts game. BlackBerry's do use java but it is a specific version: J2ME.

A hearts game for your BlackBerry would have to be designed in J2ME and compiled to run on java phones or, even better, on BlackBerrys specificaly.

As a fellow hearts junkie, I agree with Mark...the Magmic game is top-notch.
