Comments

RIM is hosting a series of webcasts that will help developers create Adobe AIR apps for the PlayBook. The webcasts will span 5 weeks and will be hosted by RIM starting on November 4th. It should be interesting to see what services will port their Adobe AIR apps over to the PlayBook and how easy they find the process. It would be cool to see something like TweetDeck running on the PlayBook.

The PlayBook Tablet is expected to attract a wide range of new developers to the BlackBerry platform and at Adobe MAX, RIM announced the new BlackBerry Tablet OS SDK for Adobe AIR. The SDK will allow developers to create AIR applications for the PlayBook tablet using familiar development tools. The PlayBook will be the world’s first tablet built from the start to run Flash Player 10.1 and Adobe AIR applications in a fully integrated, fully optimized fashion.

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.

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 blackberry.com/developers/tabletos.

The full press release is available here.
