The screen shot above might be familiar to you if you have a new device (e.g. a new Curve, Pearl or 88xx) and want to install a third party application. Well, I know the application works on my device because I saw it on the same model already. An OTA download URL would work to install this application but I don’t want OTA as I got the BlackBerry Desktop Software here. That’s what the software is for: installing application (and other stuff as well of course).
The version of the desktop software seems to be quite new:
Anyway, I figured out that there is a new version available from my provider (HK CSL) already. So I downloaded the most recent version of the BlackBerry Desktop Software (which has version 4.3 now) and the installation works fine. A list of a lot of providers that have customized BlackBerry software can be found here: The BlackBerry provider software download list.
So this is how to solve this issue. It has been mentioned alread at the complete howto for installing third party applications to a BlackBerry device: Install Applications (Windows).
