Blackberry should just try and get basic HTML and CSS working first. I was "surfing" the web on my brother-in-laws Blackberry the other day and is was brutal... Mostly text and lots of pages were outright broken. He just got his Blackberry a few months ago. Obviously there is only limited support for web standards at this point.
