Simulators are always a welcome thing when it comes to development. And RIM know the importance of it. It has revealed a simulator for the recently announced BlackBerry 9320.
You can now test your apps on the simulator before making them available for public release.
According to an email from RIM
Dear BlackBerry App World Vendor,
We are excited to welcome the new BlackBerry® 9320 to the BlackBerry smartphone line-up and inform you that the simulator is now available for download. Test your app today and get it ready for launch!
To ensure your applications are available in BlackBerry App World for this new device launch, we encourage you to test your applications using the new BlackBerry® 9320 simulator and navigate to the BlackBerry App World vendor portal to post your applications for the BlackBerry 9320 running BlackBerry 7.1 OS. You must indicate application support for this new device as current applications will not be automatically posted for sale for this new smartphone. Please follow these instructions:
1. Select Manage Products
2. Select the eye (view) under the Releases column of the app to be changed
3. Select (edit) next to the Release containing the bundle to be edited
4. Select ‘Add Release Version’ tab
5. Select the pen (edit) under the Device Support column for the bundle you wish to edit
Note: Many applications that currently support the BlackBerry® 9220 series should be easily ported to this new device with minimal change required.
You can start using this simulator immediately and RIM claims that it is super easy to use.
