blackberry support? and if so which ereader

I want to use calibre to upload epubs to my blackberry.

Right now, I only installed the kobo app on my bb as I have a kobo reader.

Calibre gave the option to send to the device but it didn't seem to work. Does calibre currently support the blackberry? And if so, which ereader should I use on the bb?

If the blackberry shows up as a usb drive then you can use the connect to folder option.

If it doesn't you should be able to use calibre's content server or email feature to get books to your device.

Thanks I'll try that.

So if that works, which ereader for a blackberry?

Again, I installed the kobo reader just because I have a kobo but I get the impression on a bb its primary (only?) means of reading books are ones purchased and not ones uploaded manually via calibre.

Is that the case? Is there another ereader commonly used for bb's?

The only one I ever found was mobipocket. It will convert epub to mobi for you. It's not perfect, but it works ok.

www.ereader.com says it has Blackberry support.

So does Barnes & Noble. Actually, that may just be a B&N-labeled version of the same eReader software at eReader.com. They don't have a "Nook" version.

I don't have a Blackberry, so I can't say how well they work...

What I found with all of those is that they don't take content other than that you buy at their store. In other words, no sideloaded content.

That's what I gather that it's no side-loaded content. I was hoping there was a half-decent (free) ereader for the bb.
