Things are ramping up with BlackBerry 7 devices coming out soon and RIM already putting out the BlackBerry 7 SDK. Devs are starting to prepare their apps for BlackBerry 7 and even creating apps that are only possible with BlackBerry 7. RIM is running a webinar tomorrow promising to explain to developers what they need to know about BlackBerry 7. BlackBerry 7 is packing some big changes including higher screen resolutions, OpenGL, and NFC.
RIM plans on covering the following topics in their webinar tomorrow
- How to quickly port your current BlackBerry® platform application to BlackBerry 7 and key considerations when designing your app for the new BlackBerry 7 smartphones
- BlackBerry 7 API Overview: Includes new hardware enabled features on BlackBerry 7 devices such as Magnetomer, Near Field Communications, Augmented Reality, OpenGL ES 2.0 as well as APIs that enhance the Super Apps experience
