Two native SDKs - playbook and Blackberry 10 in the future

There are two native SDKs available, one for Tablet OS 2.0 and one for Blackberry 10.  I'm assuming that BB10 will be available (hopefully as a free update) on my existing Playbook, when it comes out.  Valid assumption?


If so, if I want to develop applications now with a mind to using them on my Playbook with BB10 when it comes out I guess I should start now with the Blackberry 10 Native SDK?  I got the simulator working, and the screen dimensions are different than for the tablet, but I assume that eventually the Blackberry 10 Simulator will include an option for the tablet screen dimensions?

Re: Two native SDKs - playbook and Blackberry 10 in the future

No need to assume, as it has been stated quite clearly that BB10 will arrive on the PlayBook. It won't be immediately upon release of the BB10 phones, however, but perhaps within a few months afterwards.

And I believe it's a "yes" to your other questions.
