I agree at this point, had no interest in tablets eighter til i saw Blackberry. It was Mark Doherty who presented it to us at a event. He told that if an app is made then there is a chance for getting one for free.

 

The 3 points that convinced me for to develop for Playbook was:

 

 

  • Mark opened up (aprox.) 7 apps on his PlayBook, videos, games and some other, and the performance was seriously amazing. As the 8:th world wonder Smiley Tongue
  • He told even that the menus of many devices (PlayBook included) are made in Flash, which was a big WOW-moment.
  • and last, you can get one for free
Even the API impressed me.
PlayBook seriously looks like a device for developers as much for users. And when signing will be easier it will be lots of fun!

hey darkin,

 

Ryan from CES stated that at first installing apps will only work via App World but they plan on later adding third party sources for apps. It's in the video with Kevin from crackberry. I'll try to dig up a link!


thanks JRab.

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

Just a question about this: Who pays for shipping? Not that it really matters since it's a free PlayBook.

it's just an assumption, maybe they are shipping it with cash on delivery.

Re: Anyone have their PlayBook received?

Regarding the distribution of apps outside of AppWorld, the CrackBerry team asked RIM  at CES (as they use Mobihand for their own app store).

 

I think the answer was somethign like "We'll be looking into it," which is as vague as it could be Smiley Happy

 

I think they should seriously consider it as this is one of the #1 reasons why OSes get hacked.

Confused.  Are you saying that apps in 3rd party app stores makes it easier for the OS to get hacked?
