I think that ScummVM on BlackBerry will be a VERY nice thing, is there any info about that? When this idea will become real? Please tell me something, I really want to play Monkey Island on my smartphone

    ScummVM is written in C++.

    C++ support on Blackberries has been removed by RIM, in order to push towards a more sandboxed and secure Java support.

    Blackberry applications are written in Java. ScummVM will have to be rewritten in Java so that it can run on Blackberries, which is a huge task. Plus, someone will need to sync this Java port with the main C++ code.

    Thus, rejecting this one
