New BlackBerry 9220 Smartphone Simulator and Specifications Now Available



As noted during BlackBerry DevCon Americas, there would continue to be BlackBerry smartphone releases based on BlackBerry® 7 OS.  Today we’re pleased to provide you with a new developer tool to prepare for this: the BlackBerry® 9220 smartphone simulator.

We have a new simulator available for download on our simulator download page, or you can download it directly using this link:

Alongside the launch of the new simulator, we have also opened up the BlackBerry App World™ storefront to allow you to start posting your applications for sale. Many applications designed for the BlackBerry® 9300 smartphone series should be easily ported to this new device with little to no change in the application.

We encourage you to test your applications as soon as possible using the new simulator, and then navigate to the BlackBerry App World vendor portal to post your applications for the BlackBerry 9220 smartphone running BlackBerry® 7.1 OS.

The BlackBerry 9220 will support Bluetooth® 2.1 and include the following profiles:

  • Headset Profile (HSP)
  • Hand Free Profile (HFP)
  • Address Book Integration using AT commands or OBEX (Object Push)
  • Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP)

  • Bluetooth Stereo (A2DP / AVRCP)
