Newbie Questions

So I am looking to build a desktop program that works with the (flame shield on!) World of Warcraft public API. I am just a hobbiest since I left uni, and it is more to teach myself a bit of UI development than anything else, since everything I did at uni (10 years ago almost) was command line based.

Now here is my question. Basically, how hard would it to have a sort of port running on my PlayBook? I can get the C++ native SDK installed, separate out the UI, network and JSON stuff and then *most* of the code (outside the UI obviously) wouldn't need much changing? As long as I stick to portable libraries.

It's very hard to measure 'how hard' but my guess is GUI will be the most difficult part.
