I've been asked to create  a VB app for use on the Blackberry.  Is this possible?  I had found an article  last week that said VB doesn't run on the Blackberry and only Java apps do.

Could you please let me know what's correct and if I can create VB apps for the BlackBerry please direct me to any resources that could help.

You are correct to create applications you need to be looking at Java (and your users need the latest handsets the older ones DONT support Java either) :(

That was back in 2004,  now they have the MDS Plug-in for .NET.  But I haven't yet been able to Deploy the APP on the BlackBerry.  Any ideas?
