Re: SDK/Simulator Update Soon?

[ Edited ]

IMHO the apps I've submitted so far are fun to play with and I think will be approved. What I'm saying is It's too early in the game to be trying to develop apps with advance features. Especially with the crappy simulator we have to work with. Get the free playbook first. Then work on that super app.

Re: SDK/Simulator Update Soon?

That might not be as easy as you say it is for everybody. I, for example, live in Europe and I will most likely have to wait a few extra weeks/months untill the PlayBook is available in my region (as stated in the T&C). I quite dislike this term since I believe there are briljant developers in other regions than the US who need a developer device as well.

Re: SDK/Simulator Update Soon?

The delay of devices to other countries is not a BB thing.  Each country has their own certifications of what type of electronics can be sold there.  It is a trade issue, not a BB "I only cater to north american countries" issue.

Re: SDK/Simulator Update Soon?

As far as I know is it perfectly possible to launch a device in the US after FCC Clearance and in the European Union after receiving the CE Mark at the same time. Both take about the same amount of time. Even a small company like Notion Ink succeeds in this.

Re: SDK/Simulator Update Soon?

Can we have any official word from Blackberry on whether a new SDK will be out soon?

Not going to happen.  When it is released, then we will know.
