BlackBerry tablet OS Native sdk, should I use this?

Hi,

 

I'm an experienced C/C++ developper, but have no experience with BlackBerry.

I'm asked to do some research for a proof of concept application on BlackBerry.

 

1) Is the Native SDK for BlackBerry Tablet OS platform capable of targetting non-tablet BlackBerry devices?

 

2) Where can I find some API reference to exchange APDU commands with the on board SIM card?

 

Thanks you

The Native SDK can target any non-tablet phones which are running BB10... to date that means nothing but the PlayBook is supported as no BB10 phones have been released publicly.

Is there another SDK that could target both BB10 and older BB phones?

(If not, where can I access documentation for developping on older BB phones?)

WebWorks is the only supported way to target all the phones.

Another option would be to support a Java app with a codebase designed to target both the older BB phones and the Android player, which BB10 will run.

Is there a C/C++ SDK that will target some recent (pre-BB10) blackberry phones?
