Manoj let us know that RIM just released the BlackBerry PlayBook SDK for Tablet OS Application Development. The details can be found at this link on RIM’s BlackBerry website. We knew adobe was having the Adobe Max conference this week and we have yet to see what flash looks like on the BlackBerry but this is certainly a piece of good news.
Some of the details include:
The initial release of the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK allows developers to create Adobe AIR applications. Leveraging Adobe design and development tools, the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR allows you to create rich, powerful applications like never before.
Application distribution through the BlackBerry App World™ storefront makes it easy for end-users to discover, download and use your application.
Coming soon: support for content and applications using Adobe® Flash® 10.1 and HTML5 with the BlackBerry PlayBook Simulator with the BlackBerry® Browser. Register to be notified of new developments in the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK
Get support for your entire development effort with a five-week webcast series, a dedicated support forum, sample code and other resources.
The simulators can be downloaded now both for windows and mac from this link. So hopefully unlike we will have a good amount of apps to choose from once the PlayBook goes on sale.
