Today at Adobe MAX, RIM 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 powerful, familiar and industry-leading development tools. BlackBerry PlayBook is the world’s first tablet to be built from the metal up 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 www.blackberry.com/developers/tabletos.
