Android

Hi,

 

This may seem like a silly Q., but where does Google Android fit into the Blackberry world?  Can I deveop apps using it that would be usable in Blackberry phones?

 

 Thanks!

Re: Android

The transfer between the two platforms would not be easy. if I understand correctly, the Android uses Java SE, whereas the BlackBerry uses Java ME -- the two have overlap, but definitely do not share certain APIs. The ease of translation between BlackBerry and Android code is project-spceific (dpending on the extent of your reliability on platform-specific APIs such as RIM's Location API or javax.microedition classes, etc), so I can't give you an off-the-shelf answer to fit your needs.  You might want to research the differences between at java.sun.com before starting a project if you intend to create a multi-platform release.

 

Good luck!

Re: Android

  declaring my interest first: I would like flash player on my BB so as to proceed easily with an internet radio project.

 

    Digging around tonight I discovered a press release event :www.mobile.visalus.com 

    this announcing an app that integrates Android and Blackberry(Vi-Net) .

   Does this mean that Flash will be usable on BBs??

Re: Android

I currently have 5 apps in Blackberry World and they were all Android apps first. The process was super simple. I actually wrote a tutorial about it on my website www.probbieproducts.com
