Is there a Wordpress plugin out there, that redirects only Blackberry visitors to a very simple basic something of the site?

Currently I have a responsive website, a long vertical one with smoothscroll.js (Similar to the Nike one). It responds in iOS, Android, and iPad - and while it displays alright in BB (curve 2009), its very hard to read text. I have to support curve 2009 + BB.

Any suggestions?

There isn't one that I know off, however if you wanted to write a script to solve your problem then:

In Javascript:

<script type="text/javascript">   
   var userBrowser = navigator.userAgent;
   var url = "http://forblackberryusers.yoursite.com/";
   if (userBrowser.indexOf("BlackBerry") >= 0)
      if (userBrowser.indexOf("WebKit") >= 0)
         window.location = url;

or alternatively you could be smart and try and create a plugin. In php, I'd imagine it would have something along the lines of:

   $userBrowser = strtolower($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']);
   $blackberry = strrpos($userBrowser, "blackberry");
   $webkit = strrpos($userBrowser, "webkit");
   $url = "http://forblackberryusers.yoursite.com/";

   if (!($pos_blackberry === false))
      if (!($pos_webkit === false))
         header("Location: " . $url);

Hope that helps
