If you had a compiler for the Blackberry I would be willing to bet that some form of tn5250 could be made to work, though I think it would take some effort. The biggest problem is lack of curses, xterm, or X11, so you would have to write a new front end.

As for tn5250j, does the Blackberry run java apps? tn5250j doesn't use any platform specific code that I know of, so if the Blackberry runs java then I think it should work.

if you want to understand why that is, there are many good books on
the design of operating systems. please pass them along to redmond
when you're done reading them :)
