RIM gave us a little bit of an idea of what HTML5 allows us to do in the BlackBerry browser. I actually went ahead and implemented one of the tips they mentioned on the Official BlackBerry Developer Blog right away on BerryReview.
Now when you leave a comment on BerryReview while you are not logged in you will see a little change on how you input your email address. Just like when you are typing an email address in the native email application you don’t have to type the @ and “.”. You simply press the spacebar and they will be put in for you depending on the context. Kind of cool right?
We did this just by changing the input variable type=”text” to type=”email” and the BlackBerry browser does it for us.
If you are a developer for mobile websites you may want to take a look at the list and tips RIM has compiled at this link. Hopefully more are coming!
