RIM Explains BBX OS Strategy – Native SDK & HTML5 Apps Will Be forwards Compatible

IMG_5106 IMG_5105

Guarantee for BlackBerry developers. Any app created in HTML5 or any Native app for the PlayBook will work on future BBX devices. That means any developer that currently creates a HTML5, WebWorks, or Native SDK app will run on future BBX devices and current devices. They were not that clear about Adobe AIR/Flash though it does seem conspicuously missing.

RIM is not showing anything about a new phone but they are definitely hinting in that direction. It looks like the device is not going to be shown today but you never know with RIM.

  1. And what’s about the java existing apps ??? Will they run on BBX devices ?

  2. It looks like Java Development is Android SDK for now from what I can tell

  3. What about AIR apps? I am currently developing 3 Adobe AIR apps, It would be dissappointing if AIR would no longer be supported.. Can anyone confirm this?

  4. Please forgive me for being annoying… But seriously I am now thinking about those investment I have made for Adobe AIR apps.. Argghhhhhh

  5. Actually it looks like Adobe Air is in there is you look at their Press Release

  6. Ok just clarified it. Flash and Air should be supported on BBX. It seems like Alec just missed it off his slide.

  7. Thank you!! Now continuing developing apps.. Hahahhaah

  8. wait a minute.. Yeahhhh, should have seen that. Flex is Open Source

  9. That’s great news, that means when BBX phones arrive, there’ll be already a boatload of Apps!
