Re: to convert this to a blackberry App

[ Edited ]

If you want to convert it, you have to use the tools you can find on the Developer sites from BlackBerry. There are 2 options: the online tool or BlackBerry Eclipse plugin. As you said you are using Eclipse for development I recommend the latter. With this plugin you can verify and convert your application from inside Eclipse.

Then to test your game it is best to install a simulator (if you don't have a PlayBook or DevAlpha). Because it is an Android ported game you should use the PlayBook or Dev Alpha emulator. These are available on the BlackBerry developers pages. on this emulator you can install and test your application.

if you are using Android for development, the devices that can be used are limited to the PlayBook and the Dev Alpha for the moment. for both an emulator is available, so you can test it on that specific device.

No. To my knowledge, only BB10 Phones and BB PlayBooks support android runtime applications.

I have to agree with karthikpalanivelu, the only phones that support Android are the BB10 phones. And the PlayBook (tablet) is the other device that supports Android applications.

At the moment (29 Jan) the only phones available that support Android are the Dev Alpha A and Dev Alpha B. But this will soon changes, starting tomorrow BlackBerry is announcing the new BB10 phones. Those will also have the abilitiy to run Android ported applications.

Actually the latest AdMob library does not support Android 2.3.3. But if you use 4.1.1 jar file, you will be able to place your Ad on 2.3.3 application. But still when I port the app to BB, I don't get the ads. I need to look into the issue.
