Same WebKit on PlayBook and Torch?

Does the PlayBook use the same WebKit rendering engine as the Torch (BB OS 6.0)? 

 

In other words, does the PlayBook browser application rely on Adobe Air's WebKit, or is the WebKit engine standalone?  Do WebWorks applications use Air's WebKit?

The webkit rendering engine is the same as on the Torch.  It has some added improvements to it.  AIR desktop version has a built in webkit browser, but AIR mobile does not.

 

When you embed a web view in AIR on the PlayBook it is the Torch rendering engine.  All WebWorks applications use this same engine.
