Question Questions about 7100G applications...

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I am curious if the 7100 model phones can run simple programs like hyperterminal? I have met a guy that uses a Treo to troubleshoot elevators and was wonderng if I might be able to use my Blackberry in a similar way. Thanks in advance for the help.....

Aen't those made for the Blackberry? How do I know what programs will run? Do you know of a way I can view the NMEA sentences fro my GPS using the Blackberry? Thanx for the reply.

GPS functionality won't work with a 7100. A lot of applications will specify if they are to be used for a BlackBerry, along with model compatibility. If you are speaking about midlets, then its just a hit-and-miss situation where you'll have to test them out yourself.

As for hyperterminal, I'm sure there is a terminal midlet that would work on the BlackBerry, however you'll be battling with finding a converter for mini-USB to 9 or 25 pin serial/comm. And lets not even mention that if you did find a conversion cable, you won't be able to bypass RIM's hardware security to even get the cable to work
