Testing Webpage User Experience on Blackberry Browsers using Emulators

In order to test websites on the built-in browser of Blackberry devices you must download

  • the actual emulator (or simulator) images and
  • the MDS simulator (which emulates the mobile network for the emulated handheld)

Here are download urls:

Now three steps are necessary:

  • Install everything
  • Run “run.bat” from the folder: \Research In Motion\BlackBerry Email and MDS Services Simulators 4.1.4\MDS
  • Run the batch file for your specific phone (e.g. 8520.bat) from the Smartphone simulator folder
