My name is Yaniv, I am new to this forums, it is very nice to meet all.
My basic question is about remote controlling the Playbook device.
When I say remote control, I mean I want to achieve a VNC-like behavior. I don't mind separating the solution for control (mouse events) and video (stream of images taken as screenshots), but I need both eventually.
I don't mind which framework to use - Adobe Air, Java, SSH into the qnx layer, etc.
Any thoughts and ideas (not to mention reference to solutions... ) will be gladly accepted.
Solved! Go to Solution.

That's correct, it's not X11. And QNX is not Linux, in spite of various ignorant writers stating things like that in the last few months. Even if it were, things are currently locked down well enough that (it appears) only things built into the OS layers would have any access to the system in the way you'd require. I suspect this isn't something that will happen without the direct support and action of RIM and QNX, even if it is a third-party that does most of the work.
