My startup company recently started to create applications for mobile devices and we've already completed one for the iPhone. We just started on BlackBerry (we know RIM isn't doing well but a ton of organizations still use it) but we've already run into a problem. Does anyone know if we could develop BlackBerry apps on a Mac OS X? If it's possible, what's the easiest way how? Thanks in advance for the help.

Yes, you can do that.  There are several options:  Native apps, Java apps, HTML5 apps, all of them supported on Mac OS.

Here are some links you might find useful:

Native apps (Using Qt/QML and an eclipse-based IDE)
HTML5 apps
Java apps

As for the easiest way, it depends on your team’s knowledge and experience.  For me, that would be the native option, since I have worked with Qt and QML in the past, and I like them a lot, but that is just my personal preference.
