I have never used a blackberry before. I found the PlayBook to be a very interesting device, that I would love to program for.
I am an iPad and iPhone app developer.. Would love to program for the PlayBook..
But, it is seriously disappointing that there is a sort of 'Emulation layer' between Apps and the device.
Apps <----> Adobe AIR <-----> OS <-----> Device
It is severly limiting and it honestly feels crippled to me.
iPad apps run natively, and it's disappointing the PlayBook won't allow that. Is there an ETA for Native development SDK?

I have a specific app that I want to port to the new Tablet OS that uses some C/C++ libraries (there's no way around that Im afraid - its critical for the app). So I really need to know if its going to be possible to compile any native libraries - what will the C/C++ SDK conist of?
Most other mobile platforms (Android, webOS, iOS) have the ability to build native C/C++ libraries and I think its going to be crucial for developers to port existing apps across to the Tablet OS.
Also any kind of timeline for release of these other SDKs.
