Loaded app via ant/phonegap to dev alpha. using 'ant playbook load-device' using the webworks SDK for tablets 188.8.131.52 some features are non responsive as expected.
also threw the bb10 html app code on server and my bold 9900 can display it although page transitions are slow.
For the BB10 you need to use the BB10 WebWorks SDK, not the PlayBook SDK.

I used the playbook ant/cordova version of the app and it installed to the dev alpha for visual tests.
its working although page transitions are slow.

I also use Phonegap/Cordova to package, build (,sign) + deploy to BB10 with some changes made to to build.xml, a customized/created bb10.xml and some changes made to the project.properties file to run easily from the command prompt.
For the SDK I recommend to use BB10 WebWorks SDK when deploying to Dev Alpha since you might run into trouble with APIs for now or in the future since the BB10 APIs might work somehow different and there also seems to be more APIs available as for the PlayBook.

To install an app onto your device, you have to be in developer mode. You can only have developer mode if you have a password on your device. In the settings, under security, you will see the developer mode switch.

georgemck is really right, the post should be pinned to forum start page
For the password your computer is asking, it is the same you set under "Security->Development Mode" when you set it to "ON" where it says "Use Development Mode" on the device. It prompts you to add a password and the same password is needed on the computer when connection the device.

Hey georgemck, nice post.
Although I've done all that for my development, learnt it the hard way, it explains in one page what a new developer needs to do across the different platforms.
