BlackBerry device models and screen resolutions

You can configure the BlackBerry® Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator to send messages from three different models of the BlackBerry device. In the simulation that the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator creates, the models differ in screen resolution. Each simulated model of the BlackBerry device has a different screen resolution.

The BlackBerry® Enterprise Server uses the screen resolution only in some situations. The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends a screen resolution whenever it requests a picture that was not created for a BlackBerry device model. The BlackBerry Enterprise Server component uses the screen resolution to scale and render the image correctly.

The BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends a screen resolution with HTTP requests and attachment requests. Those are the only requests that require the information about BlackBerry device models. You must configure the BlackBerry device model only if your test environment includes the BlackBerry Attachment Service or the BlackBerry MDS Connection Service.

The percentage of each BlackBerry device model is called its weight. By default, the BlackBerry Infrastructure and Smartphone Simulator sends 100% of all messages as if they were from BlackBerry® 8300 smartphones.
