Playbook Simulator - Missing all icons, features etc.

I downloaded the playbook simulator and am runing it through VMWare... but I don't see any icons, can't use the browser etc.

Is the simulator restricted at this point to purely handle AIR apps only? or is there an issue with my install.

 

I was hoping to test out the browser capabilities for some web applications, HTML5 etc. before getting into some java app development.

 

Thanks!

Yes it is.  Currently the BlackBerry PlayBook Simulator can only be used to test custom AIR applications.

Ah, ok... that wasn't overly clear in the emails/download page I went to. :-(

 

Looking forward to the full simulator though!

 

Cheers,

Steve
