BlackBerry tablet OS Native sdk, should I use this?

Hi,

 

I'm an experienced C/C++ developper, but have no experience with BlackBerry.

I'm asked to do some research for a proof of concept application on BlackBerry.

 

1) Is the Native SDK for BlackBerry Tablet OS platform capable of targetting non-tablet BlackBerry devices?

 

2) Where can I find some API reference to exchange APDU commands with the on board SIM card?

 

Thanks you

Developer

The Native SDK can target any non-tablet phones which are running BB10... to date that means nothing but the PlayBook is supported as no BB10 phones have been released publicly.

[ Edited ]

Is there another SDK that could target both BB10 and older BB phones?

(If not, where can I access documentation for developping on older BB phones?)

WebWorks is the only supported way to target all the phones.

Another option would be to support a Java app with a codebase designed to target both the older BB phones and the Android player, which BB10 will run.

Is there a C/C++ SDK that will target some recent (pre-BB10) blackberry phones?
