BlackBerry Java developers got a nice boost today with the release of the BlackBerry Java SDK 7 beta release. Alongside the release RIM has also updated the BlackBerry Java plugin for Eclipse and the BlackBerry Java Development Environment (JDE). They have also thrown in simulators for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 and 9930 so you can now start to both develop and test BlackBerry OS 7 applications. That is nice since BlackBerry OS 7 adds quite a few new API’s and hardware features including OpenGL which are listed here.
You can get all three of the updates at the new BlackBerry 7 landing page
