Re: webworks and cordova(phonegap) api

Hello,

 

Could you explain a little more about what you're wanting to achieve with PhoneGap on BlackBerry 10?  

 

There is PhoneGap/Cordova BlackBerry 10 support, but not all of the API's are ready.  As we get closer to launch, and as PhoneGap releases are updated we're adding more and more API support.

The performance should be the same.

 

For example, if you're using PhoneGap to access the camera, it is the actual device camera that is loaded with our own API's.  Performance should be the same as if you didn't use PhoneGap, and used the BlackBerry API's to do it.
