I'm not sure if it's really been tested; myself for my forums I can browse them with my PDA (PPC2002) using the built in IE browser; but that's a given as it's just a web browser; though even with it i've had issues, such as no java support.

Myself I've been giving strong thought to creating a feed for my forums for "small devices" (cellphones, pda's, etc) without having to "fiddle" with modifications; step one is to fiddle the UBB.News modification at UBBDev (a file really, it's not really a modification as it doesn't touch any stock files) to be RSS2.0 compliant so many readers and relay programs can cache the content... But this is more of a 3rd party's 3rd party kinda deally <img src="https://www.ubbcentral.com/boards/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" /> ...

For blackberry support it'd be kind of interesting as you'd really have to own one in order to test compatability with one...

While we do not expressly test or support any portable product, as long as they have reasonable support for HTML and perhaps a little Javascript, things should work fine.

Hey guys,

I was not able to get the vendor to open up a new blackberry (that bastered) so I guess I am still unsure as to what product I should get. It is either a Palm 650 or the Blackberry 7290. Guess I will just buy a blackberry and try it out. So Charles' your thoughts would be that yes the blackberry would be able to log into the forums?

My PocketPC will allow me to browse my forums however in its current state hates javascript so little bits don't function hehe...

I've not yet played with a palm though so I'm not too sure there...

I know AvantGo is supported on Palm though, and with a wee bit of tweaking to the UBBNews script at UBBDev you could have relatively simple AvantGo support...

Hey guys,

It looks like I am going to get a blackberry this weekend. I'll play with it and see which one works best. Cause I ams till leaning more towards the PalmPilot 650 but sadly they only offer the Treo 600 so dam. Guess I'll piss of the cell phone booth guys and try both fo them see which one works best.

Thanks, Nathan

One and all,

The blakcberry 7290 does not view the forums. So looks like I am sticking with the Palm Treo 650.

Can you elaborate on what you mean when you say "does not"? What exactly goes wrong?

Sure,

The Vendor states that the page is not viewable. This error comes from T-Mobile using the Blackberry 7290. He states that their internet is a intranet and the forums are not viewable. www.ubbcentral.com

Charles,

T-Mobile uses an intarnet for their blackberry's so anything outside of it is a unviewable page it seems. I am going to be getting a Palm Treo 650 within a few weeks and I am sure that the Palm will be able to view thes ubbcentral forum's because it is much like the PocketPC.
