Need help with Playbook dev question

Thanks in advance for your any help .......


I have been doing some research on the Playbook tablet, and it seems you have only development support for Flash and HTML5.

I downloaded and created a basic app using the Flash Builder 4.5...not sure if there is another SDK.

I have a Blackberry app and i would like to enrich it to work in the Playbook. This mean transforming it by taking advantage of the Playbook processor and screen.

1) How can i accomplish this?

2) Will there be in the future a Java RIM SDK for the Playbook?

3) How can i adapt my app using the blackberry code i already have? is that possible?

4) I have also read the Playbook supports Android. If i already have an Android app that works in a Xoom tablet, can i run it on a Playbook? How can i adjust it?

5) What would be the best approach here?
  • Re do my entire app using flash
  • Re do my entire using html5
  • Reuse my blackberry app and somehow adjust it to Playbook
  • Reuse my android tablet app and run it on Playbook
