Seems to me RIM is puishing WebWorks very hard instead and the "player" will be a poor relation.

 

there's a market for mobile web apps based on frameworks like WebWorks - and so this is great thatv RIM supports this and has open-sourced their platform

 

on the other side - if you could solve all kinds of mobile apps using html 5 , css etc all would go this way...

but there are iOS, Android, W7, BB Java to develop apps with great feature sets and user experience

 

so I hope that later there will be also new Java SDK on top of QNX and the 'player-apps' are only a first step to make java apps run. the players will of course only be successfull if they support BB JAva 100%

Check out the demos etc. There's not much you can't do now, and don't forget there's an open API to build those integrations with the device that are not already available. 

 

"I hope that later there will be also new Java SDK on top of QNX"

 

The billion dollar question is, why isn't there a JVM and SDK prior to the Playbook launch

 

For those that didn't already know, QNX already provides JVM support on its Neutrino RTOS. So how come RIM didn't release a JVM and SDK using the existing JVM?

 

My intuition is that the lack of a published Playbook JVM is in some way related to the legal situation over Java licensing. Googles hijacking of the Java standard with Dalvik may have provided a more efficient JVM, but it has effectively created uncertainly over the very existence of the language. 

 

Personally I'd like to see a quick resolution of the Oracle patent suit, with Google settling with Oracle in the wider interest of the Java community. Not that its likely to happen. In the meantime should RIM use the Java standard they'll always be at a disadvantage to Androids JVM. 

 

It will be interesting to see just what RIM puts in place as a "player". As I say, its hard to see how something that runs compiled Java class files wouldn't be classed as a JVM.

I still don't belive that RIM could put Android support on their phones. Its incredible.

Re: Support for BlackBerry Java and Android Apps on BlackBerry PlayBook

The Android apps will be available throught the BlackBerry App World? Android developers should submit their apps to the BB app world??

Re: Support for BlackBerry Java and Android Apps on BlackBerry PlayBook

Where do we send them? Do we have to sing them with the BB thing or only with our Android utility?

Re: Support for BlackBerry Java and Android Apps on BlackBerry PlayBook

You will have to repackage them and sign them with RIM keys. I don't believe any of that is available yet.
