This is nice seeing as on the smart phone market from what I understand the BlackBerries even beat the iPhone from what I've heard. So added usability and functions as well as security concerns is nice.
WebKit is the same engine behind Google Chrome and Safari. Don't expect to be browsing the new Bing Maps with it from a non-MS platform.
What part of "Ph'nglui mglw'nafh Cthulhu R'lyeh wgah'nagl fhtagn" don't you understand?
How'd you get so smart, 3vi1? :)

rofl Webkit is behind several as well as being open source isn't it?
Hehe... I think BlackBerry's use of WebKit is a good thing. Execs will actually become aware of open non-proprietary web services when they can't use the ones tied to WinAPIs.
But, you knew I just couldn't zooming out to show how this relates to what Microsoft is really pulling with Silverlight: 1) Leverage your desktop OS to get everyone using your web services, then 2) Leverage your proprietary web services to get everyone license your mobile OS. 3) Dance on RIM's grave and move development resources on to the next victim.
Now that MS has the go-ahead on the Yahoo deal, how long before Yahoo Maps just redirects to Bing?
I just want the BlackBerry to come by default set to use internet browser and not BlackBerry browser. Blackberry browser can't render anything and often fails at connecting to the internet. I'm just glad each phone platform has at least 2 options.
