PlayBook simulator



with VMware Player 4.0.2 build-591240 I was able to startup simulator 1.0.8 interface. "Development Mode" is on and simulator is online.


I'm working on a App which interacts with address books and calendars, it would be very helpful to get same environement on PlayBook as on other simulator where all OS Apps are available. On this simulator only a Browser App is available.


  • Is there any chance to get a name list of all Apps installed from ROM (OS Apps) on a PlayBook?
  • Is there a chance to get those Apps installed on simulator?

Re: PlayBook simulator

First party applications other than the Browser are not supported in the BlackBerry PlayBook simulator.  We do not offer them for installation into the simulator.
