    Some BB OS questions

    Advertisement



    I'm still new to bb devices, and very happy with my pearl so far. I have a couple of questions on the os.

    1.What kind of OS does BB use?

    2.Is there a way to say Alt-Tab as you would in Windows btwn apps?

    3.Is there a task manager shortcut like app on bb, to say kill processes?

    Re: Some BB OS questions

    1. don't exactly know what you are asking

    2. like the thread listed above posted by HAYDEN says - "To switch applications, hold the Alt key and press the Escape key. Continue holding the Alt key and select an application. Release the Alt key."

    3. no, but just use the answer to #2 and go to the program you want to close and either "exit" out of it or "close" it...the browser, home screen, messages, phone and blackberry messenger are always going to be open

    Question one, I guess what I'm asking is. The operating system that bb uses on its devices is obviously not Windows xp or Linux, so I was wondering what its called. If it even has a name

    It's a Java based OS, I think. At least that's the way I read RIMs documentation on the Tech Knowledge Center Site
