BB os 10 (for z10) vs. Playbook

I tried googling the info but apparently i am getting a "Error selecting the "BetaZone" database" whenever i get to a page that might have information....

 

We would like to have our game work on Playbook and on BB os 10 (targeting z10) however these are two seperate SDK downloads. do i need to make 2 seperate executables? or can i make 1 executable/download/package and it run on both playbook and z10?

 

thanks

Re: BB os 10 (for z10) vs. Playbook

Playbook has BlackBerry Tablet OS, while Z10 has BlackBerry 10 OS, so they are different and you have to prepare two separate executables.

Re: BB os 10 (for z10) vs. Playbook

In general, executables generated with the 2.1 SDK will run under BB10, though not the other way around.  

 

Screen resolution is of course different and testing will show any particular differences with your program.

 

If you take this approach you won't be able to use BB10 specific Api's.  I also know that native dialog boxes are handled differently.
