'''BlackBerry OS''' is the proprietary software platform made by Research In Motion for their [[BlackBerry]] line of handhelds. It provides multi-tasking, and makes heavy use of the device's specialized input devices, particularly the thumbwheel. The OS provides support for MIDP 1.0 and WAP 1.2. Previous versions allowed wireless synchronization with Microsoft Exchange Server's e-mail and calendar, as well as with Lotus Domino's e-mail. The current OS 4 provides a subset of MIDP 2.0, and allows complete wireless activation and synchronization with Exchange's e-mail, calendar, tasks, notes and contacts, and adds support for Novell GroupWise and Lotus Notes.

ext3 or the third extended file system is a Linux filesystem. Its main advantage over ext2 is journalling which improves reliability and eliminates the need to check the file system after an unclean shutdown.
