OSNews, Generic OSes There's one complaint we here at OSNews get thrown in our faces quite often: what's up with the lack of, you know, operating system news on OSNews? Why so much mobile phone news? Why so much talk of H264, HTML5, and Flash? Where's the juicy news on tomorrow's operating systems? Since it's weekend, I might as well explain why things are the way they are. Hint: it has nothing to do with a lack of willingness.

If you download the Blackberry dev tools, you get a Blackberry OS simulator. I don't think it is a 100% full Blackberry OS, and I don't have the tools installed anymore to check.

EDIT: Of course a simulator just won't give you the experience of the actual phone.

Thanks for the tip. I may give that a try.

Hopefully that's true. I sure as heck don't want a monthly bill, and I definitely prefer my full-sized keyboard and 24" widescreen. ;)
