BlackBerry PlayBook Native SDK 1.0.7: installation failed on Mac 10.6

Hi

 

I received an email from "BlackBerry Network Administrator"

 

First I was not sure this email really come from RIM because the url to access on the email it's:

http://developer.blackberry.com/native

But we check the real link it's:

http://lyrislist/t/88147/6048953/871/0/u=aHR0cDovL2RldmVsb3Blci5ibGFja2JlcnJ5LmNvbS9uYXRpdmU%3d&x=23a5e689

 

I didn't click on the link and I cut/paste http://developer.blackberry.com/native on my browser. For Mac It install the application "Akamai NetSession Interface". What is that???? It's not the SDK!!!

 

A second time I reopen my browser on the url http://developer.blackberry.com/native and It accept to download the SDK (It's like Akamai NetSession Interface was just a tool to download the SDK).

 

After a few minutes I was the message:

 An error occurred while processing your request.

Reference #50.c15ef648.1320254080.9efd4d54  

 

Each time I download the SDK it's crash with same type of message!

 

I have a very bad user experience: The email that I received it's very strange and could be detect as a spoof url, I was obliged to click 1 to install Akamai NetSession (is it really need it!!!), and 2 to download the SDK for finally have a crash at the end!

 

 Complex and not fonctional process, I was expected more from RIM!

Sounds like you registered a couple of weeks ago for for the beta 2.0 Playbook software.

 

If you don't want it, don't install or download it. Smiley Wink

 

It's not a spoof URL, but I am not surprised that your MAC can't install it.

True. I was interested by the Native SDK. I beleive on QNX OS and with a good native SDK it's could be an interesting envrionment.
With the beta version I was obliged to trick the installation but I was able to configure the environment. It was a beta I was expected a better installation process.
With the official it worse I can not even download the SDK!

Even I want it I can not install it!

Good to know. Well if the SDK exclude mac user just don't propose the SDK on this platform Smiley Happy

Just right click the blue download box and save the zip file to your downloads. I used Chrome on Mac Lion
