BlackBerry World Session Catalog Now Live


former WES conference

The BlackBerry World Session Catalog is now live and it looks like this conference, despite the rebrand, is still very much geared towards large enterprise. This makes sense as RIM will likely save the more consumer-level news and sessions for the BlackBerry Developer Conference, which is conveniently located in San Francisco. This year’s conference is focused on business, IT, and development needs, as well as the tablet’s impact on the office of tomorrow.

Adobe AIR Apps Demoed on the BlackBerry PlayBook at Adobe MAX


Mike Lazaridis, Co-CEO of RIM, and Kevin Lynch, CTO of Adobe, gave a pretty awesome demo of the BlackBerry PlayBook and Adobe AIR apps running on it. The demo also shows off some cool features such as the multitasking with HD video and Adobe AIR apps.

At the end of the video, there is some really awesome news as well. If you create an app for the PlayBook, and it’s accepted to be distributed through App World, you’re eligible for a free PlayBook. So get coding!

BlackBerry PlayBook Admin Screen Proves QNX Software Isn’t Ready?

UPDATE: This was actually an app being demo’d that was left on the screen. The screen you see isn’t actually anything from the PlayBook OS layer.

It’s pretty obvious that the QNX OS for the PlayBook isn’t ready to be handled yet, and that’s why RIM had the PlayBook behind glass cases (and still does). When something is demoed for the first time it’s almost always under very tight conditions and while it seems RIM rushed to demo, the expectations were a little low considering the PlayBook isn’t available until early 2011.

At the Gartner conference, the PlayBook was on display and big to show something like a dashboard/admin screen. It’s hard to tell if this is proof that the PlayBook OS isn’t ready, or if the demo units have some added admin software.

In any case, we’re all looking forward to getting our hands on the PlayBook and especially to get the QNX OS on BlackBerrys.
