with the upcoming release of BB10 the question arises whether it makes sense to develop for Tablet OS 2.1. I've develop a little app to get the BB10 developer edition device and now I want to port it over to the playbook.
Do I need to repeat the key order/register process for PlayBook apps or can I use the keys I used for BB10?
Are there any things I need to know if I develop for BB10 along with the Tablet OS 2.1? For instance when it comes to signing with the command line?
I have downloaded the Tablet OS SDK 2.1 for Adobe AIR, adapted my app for the PlayBook and want to tie everything together now.
Thanks a lot!

You can (and should) use the same code signing keys for BlackBerry PlayBook OS and BlackBerry 10.
In order to be able to add your release as a PlayBook release, the package ID needs to be the same. That ID is generated from your code signing key and package name. For AIR apps, the package name is defined in the id field of the -app.xml file.

The commandline signing process is the same for both platforms, and you don't need to order new keys for Tablet OS. Keep in mind that PlayBook is supposed to get BB10 in a few months and according to RIM most PlayBook owners upgrade the OS within a month of release.
