Stage3D for VMWare Simulators

Anyone know if support for Stage3D is coming to the VMWare simulators for BBK 10 or for Playbook OS? If so, when?I'm trying to port a Starling / Stage3D game to Blackberry, and it is feeling well nigh impossible. Neither VMWare simulator supports it, nor does the Playbook itself. The only simulators I've found that support it are the ones built into the BBK SDK for AIR, but the BBK 10 simulator is almost unusable, as the dimensions are far too large to fit on my monitor and seems impossible to resize and the Playbook one won't rotate.

BB10 is not expected to have Stage3D support at launch. We're hoping it will come quickly, as it is holding up quite a lot of development.

Stage3D will come after launch. We hope to see a beta some time in the Spring.
