Last week I upgraded to Gingerbird (Android 3.0) and noticed heavy battery draining! Turning off Wifi helped in retaining device run on battery for longer time :)

Working with Remote URL - BlackBerry Simulator

If you are getting started to work BlackBerry development and aim at fetching connect from remote URL, to test with Blackberry simulator review the following:

* Setup Wifi on the Blackberry Simulator.

* Blackberry MDS is running - without which Remote URL fetch attempt silently fails.

* Grant access in the app (config.xml)
<access subdomains="true" uri="http://targetdomain.tld"> or
<access subdomains="true" uri="*">

* Now launch the app and test the url fetch. (assuming it uses* classes)

NOTE: Blackberry MDS failed to work as expected on Windows Vista/Windows 7, I had to switch on Windows XP!
