    ASP.NET Mobile Web Application is a server technology that allows mobile devices to browse to ASP.NET Mobile pages.  As long as a device has a HTML, WML, XHTML or CHTML browser, it will be able to browse to the mobile pages.

    Looks like BlackBerry does have simulators for download, though I haven't tried it myself.

    i am student who working on the project which will develop 2 version for one website , web version and mobile version .

    To use an emulator as the Visual Studio application browser, follow these steps:
    1. Install and test the mobile device emulator on your development computer as instructed in the
    emulator’s documentation.
    2. Right-click on any .ASPX page within a project displayed in the Solution Explorer and choose
    Browse With to open the Browse With dialog.
    3. Click the Add button.
    4. Browse to find the executable file for the emulator and provide a friendly name for it.
    5. Click OK.
    6. If you want to set the emulator as the default browser, highlight it from the list in the Browse
    With dialog and click the Set As Default button.

    but after  above steps my  Nokia Mobile Browser 4.0 SDK  simulator didn't display any thing . why   appriciate that anyone can help me !!!

    I think how the Browse With dialog works is that it will launch the program with a command parameter of the url.  For example, if you choose IE executable in the dialog, Visual Studio will launch:

       iexplore.exe <A href="http://localhost:/WebSite1/Default.aspx">http://localhost:<port#>/WebSite1/Default.aspx

    Sounds like the Nokia Mobile Browser 4.0 simulator does not take the url parameter, that's why it displays nothing.  You would need to copy the url launched in IE and paste it into the url box of the simulator.

    go here and dl the blackberry java dev environment (I know, you're not doing java...read on).

    this will give you the mds (mobile data service) simulator after you install. In \Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 4.1.0\MDS, if you took the default installation, do run.bat in that directory. This will start the mds simulator.

    then in cmd prompt from here: \Program Files\Research In Motion\BlackBerry JDE 4.1.0\simulator, do 'fledge /handheld=xxxx' where xxxx= the version of the bberry you are simulating (ex, /handheld=7250). This should start the blackberry, I didn't do the enterprise activation, but the browser works.

    I couldn't browse to localhost or to get to my app, I had to use my machines ip address to get to the web app. Also, can't debug on this, but you can run your app in a regular browser from vs.net to debug.

    hope this helps

    After following Franks link (above), looks like you can get just MDS here:


    instead of dl'ing the entire dev environment. I didn't do that, but wanted to check out the dev environment anyway.

    I don't have the simulator to try, but I guess you first need to make sure the browser simulator has the correct http connection.  I think the Nokia browser simulator requires a Nokia WAP Gateway Simulator to run if the browser simulator is not going through an external gateway.  Do you have the gateway simulator running on your machine?
