RIM Introduces New SDK for BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet
      #38933 - 10/25/10 10:31 AM

RIM today announced the new BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR. This SDK enables developers to quickly and easily create AIR applications for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet using Adobe's development tools. Adobe AIR developers can start building their applications today for BlackBerry PlayBook and will be able to start submitting their AIR applications for BlackBerry PlayBook to BlackBerry App World by end of this year. Here is a lot more info from RIM about this SDK and their developer's programs:



Building the Best Flash/AIR Applications for Tablet Computing
RIM has designed the BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR to allow developers to leverage the uniquely powerful capabilities of the BlackBerry PlayBook and Adobe AIR 2.5 to build industry-leading applications that provide a distinctly compelling experience for BlackBerry PlayBook users. The new SDK provides developers with support for:

* Hardware-accelerated playback of video and graphics-intensive content, both in the browser and within AIR applications, enabling a smooth, high fidelity viewing experience on the BlackBerry PlayBook, even with up to 1080p HD content
* Web View to enable AIR apps to display HTML and Flash content and to leverage the BlackBerry PlayBook's WebKit browser
* UI components that have been built specifically for the touch screen experience on a tablet device, including support for multi-touch and gestures
* Powerful APIs to advanced features such as the front and rear facing cameras, accelerometer, geo-location, in-app payments and more
* Application notifications, which allow developers to bring events generated by AIR applications immediately to the user?s attention, even if the application is running in the background
* Seamless communication between AIR apps on the BlackBerry PlayBook, allowing the creation of ?Super App? experiences
* Extending Adobe AIR applications to use native C++ extensions, providing developers with the ability to write part of their application in the BlackBerry Tablet OS's native code (subject to availability of the upcoming BlackBerry Tablet OS native SDK)
* Porting existing Adobe AIR applications quickly and easily to the BlackBerry PlayBook

The BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR, along with the BlackBerry PlayBook simulator, are both currently available in beta and can be downloaded for free from www.blackberry.com/developers/tabletos
