Sorry, but that is a FAIL.
PlayBook won't 'take-off' with only Flash apps as it's arsenal despite the powerful hardware. C'mon RIM, you can do better than this!

As long as the consumer does not notice a difference and the user response, download time, and start time is fast, consumers just dont care if the underlying method to build the application is AIR, native, Java, QNX, HTML5, flavor-of-the-year. Ask any end user consumer (not geek), and they just dont which is what. The platform will have multiple SDKs to support multiple language-du-jour.
I'm confused what the issue might be??

it's just the opinion of Jim Balsillie and nothing more than that. and just because that's his opinion doesn't mean that is going to happen. it's been said many times during the webcasts (if you bothered to join any of those) that there is going to be a native sdk for the playbook even tho the air platform is as strong as it is. that being said don't judge an issue by an article's punch line.

One nice thing about PB, it that it does not force you into one laungage and approach. I do hope that all the SDKs will present the user a unified style, so it is not obvious which are native QNX vs. native ActionScript vs. XYZ.
