    Hi, I was wondering if there is anything I can do other than totally rewrite my web pages to be able to use the Telerik controls with Blackberry browsers? Unless everyone is living under a rock, the mobile space is becoming the new desktop. The Telerik controls work very nicely with the iPhone and iPad but have a very difficult time on the Blackberry.

    I am not specifically requesting mobile controls, rather, the existing controls play nice with the Blackberry environment just as they do now with the iOS mobile devices.

    Hi Matt Smith,

    This is because RadControls are tested mostly on iPad, iPhone and Android devices. Still we are looking forward to improve the support of a wide range of mobile devices and are making constant, though small, improvements to our controls in that direction.

    Could you be a bit more specific on what problems exactly you are experiencing on Blackberry? (We may be able to resolve some of the for the upcoming Q2 release.)

    Best wishes,
    Simon

    Hey Simon, thanks for the reply.

    I am testing directly on a BB curve (8520) and the tab strip does not work at all. I am also using the form decorator which partially works.

    Just try your demo site out with the BB and you will see that it doesn't handle the tab strip very well.

    Hello Matt Smith,

    Thank you for the additional info.

    As far I know your device is using Blackberry OS v4.6 by default, which we do not support because of its limitations (for instance AJAX is not supported on it).

    We will test on v5.0 and beyond and will fix whatever we can and fits the time frame we have for improving mobile support of RadControls for the upcoming Q2 2011 release.

    Regards,
