Access to PIM, messaging APIs

Hi all,


Does anyone have any material on how the PIM and messaging APIs will be exposed on the PlayBook? I am of course assuming that these APIs will be available. It would be pretty strange if they weren't since surely these are the main Blackberry enterprise value drivers...


Any ideas? I'm a bit confused as to how one is supposed to develop anything that ties in with the rest of the device if these APIs are not available.

Re: Access to PIM, messaging APIs



the exact method of access on device information such as contacts and calendar events is unclear and not yet available. However during one of the webcasts they mentioned syncing with device information via WebWorks. WebWorks from what i read has access to device data and is a go between for blackberry phones, data on the phones, and the net. Hopefully it will be more clear in the near future.
