Devs: BlackBerry PlayBook NDK Beta Coming to Beta Zone Soon?

BlackBerry PlayBook ndk public beta screen

It looks like developers waiting for RIM to release the BlackBerry PlayBook QNX Tablet Native Development Kit (NDK) won’t have much longer to wait. According to the public beta of the NDK will be opening up soon but we don’t have an exact date. It looks like you will be able to apply to participate in the beta through the Beta Zone so keep an eye out over there.

The NDK is a huge deal for developers since the PlayBook QNX is POSIX Compliant which means quite a bit of code and even full apps can be ported easily. It also gives developers a whole lot more power than the Flash or WebWorks SDK’s. At the beginning this will be mostly for games and high end apps but once RIM releases a UI framework manager things should get really interesting.

Keep an eye out on the PlayBook development landing page for more details

  1. Can’t wait to compile QAMP and a DLNA client :)

  2. Still waiting to see something with a little more substance than a few scatter blog posts. Nothing actually posted from RIM yet, as far as I can tell.

  3. That is great news. I think we’ll start seeing much better quality apps when developers can use the NDK.

  4. Yep that ndk will be nice right about now along with the android player

  5. it’s already here indeed, great news guys check out,

  6. Awesome devs work ur magic :)

  7. I hope to see some amazing apps when this baby comes out! I’ll need to keep on the lookout too at the Beta zone so I can mess around with it too.
