hello bb forum
I was watching the past cascades development videos and the presenter said that currently the playbook does not support blackberry 10 os, so apps made with cascades won't work on the playbook as of now. While I don't currently have a play book there is one on the way.
I wanted to start creating some apps that I would be able to put on blackberry appworld, my question is using the new sdk and development tools. Are the current devices supported? Who would be able to download and use the apps. Sorry for the question but I am totally new to blackberry.
Solved! Go to Solution.

Thanks for the quick response. It seems this app build up is for the blackberry 10 phone coming out early next year, which I can completely understand.
That brings up two questions I had then, the current blackberry playbooks out there can't really be used as bb 10 development devices.
What can I target to build now that would be widely supported and is there a good upgrade path once these apps are released to be upgraded to the new sdk?

I see now, that's cool. I think i'll start with web works and continue to learn the cascades to have something ready for the bb 10 launch early next year.

It has been confirmed that BB10 will be coming to the Playbook.
Yes, but not when.

Its a cool thing that the playbook will get bb 10 which is good. I actually ordered one thinking that it already had bb 10. Never the less having a real device to test on will be better than the simulator.
Learning js should be quite interesting until bb 10 rolls out.

For what it's worth, based on what RIM people were saying at the end of September in San Jose (Jam Americas), we can expect a beta of BB10 on the PlayBook within a few months after the BB10 phones ship, and a first release of it likely around the beginning of summer. Put a "plus or minus 2-3 months" on any of those and it's probably a pretty safe bet. ;-)

simon_hain can I ask you a new question.
I created a webworks helloworld.bar test project using the latest webworks sdk. Now I was having issues loading the .bar file on the playbook simulator but using the dev alpha 10 simulator there's no problem.
My question : I though the webworks projects worked on all blackberry devices? Is this something that will resolve itself once I sign my projects and upload them to the blackberry appworld?
