Default New to the BB need some help

Please Login to Remove!

Hello all,
I am interested in a Blackberry and really don't know much about them. This I can learn reading the forum. My main question is can I run various programs on a BB? I have a Palm Life Drive that is no longer made. I need something to replace it, enter the BB. I work in the medical field and use certain medical/drug programs daily.
Can these be used on a BB as well?
Can a BB run Palm software or is it mostly Windows based?
Can I run these programs off of an SD card for the BB?

Thanks a bunch!

Depends on the application. The software developer would need to make a version compatible with BlackBerry.

Neither. It won't run Palm software, or Windows software.
BlackBerry runs a proprietary OS, and only Blackberry specific apps will run on it.

No, you can't run apps form the microSD card. microSD card is only for media storage.
