RIM Shows Off BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet SDK on Video

As a sort of closer for their BlackBerry Tablet SDK webcast series for the last week RIM put together a sub 5 minute video showing off development on the BlackBerry Tablet SDK. Sadly RIM is still sticking with only talking about Adobe Air and Flash development while ignoring the web, Java, and C++ SDKs they have promised for the future. Hopefully we will hear more on those soon but until then check out this video showing off how the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK integrates directly into Adobe Flash Builder 4 and the GUI builder in Flash Builder “Burrito”.

  1. I sure wish I had programming skills! I would work on a prgram to get that free playbook they have promised… I am glad to know they a pushing things like this out so people know this is THE tablet.

    • Hi captainbdsc,

      Awesome to hear you’re psyched about the “THE tablet.” While you may not take on developing something for the PlayBook yourself, you can check out the latest apps in development on our Inside BlackBerry Developer’s Blog. We’ve already seen some great apps submitted for both work and play, and we can’t wait to see what comes through when SDK updates are released.

      If you ever decide to jump into programming, you can head over to to download a copy of the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK and find tutorials, videos, and support forums to help you get started building for BlackBerry.

  2. Burrito and BlackBerry are the new peanut butter and jelly. 😉 Someone should patent that duo.

  3. when is the release date! getting one!

  4. COol! HOpefully some killer apps at launch. Good incentive for developers is the free playbook if your app is accepted.

    • Hi guys. It’s Alex from RIM again. We shot a new video at CES showcasing some of the BlackBerry PlayBook apps we had on display in Las Vegas, including: Kobo eReader, ATP World Tour, Fantasy Football, Docs To Go and Nic Nac Noe – I think it gives you an idea of the wide variety of apps currently in development. Cheers!
