PlayBook OS 2.0 Developer Beta Includes WebGL, Flash 11, & AIR 3.0

RIM mentioned during the keynote that Flash 11 and AIR 3.0 are in the PlayBook preview built of OS 2.0. These new versions of Flash and AIR allow for slick GPU accelerated 3D games as you can see in the screenshots below they were showing off. Pretty slick for Flash.

They also showed off WebGL on the PlayBook browser which you see above but what they didn’t say was that the PlayBook developer beta that was opened up today includes WebGL support for developers to test out. That means 3D games in the browser without Flash! I think that is a first for any mobile platform. Pretty slick!

  1. Wow…this looks great. Zombie Tycoon looks like a W.O.W. type game. What is the other picture from? Graphics are awesome. Can only get MAC from the name.

  2. I cannot for the life of me remember what the game was called. Supposedly it is an AIR game that was first ported to iOS and became the top seller for weeks if I remember what they said correctly. Sadly I was looking down when they mentioned it.

  3. It also features folders :). That’s very cool :)

  4. Installed 2.0 on my playback, but can’t use WebGL. Any website I go to with WebGL examples won’t run them. Anyone get this to work?
