BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS Released!

The BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS has been released!  You can read about and download it here:  http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/webworks.jsp


A new webcast series to help developers create BlackBerry WebWorks applications for the BlackBerry PlayBook will start on February 1, 2011. Developers will get first hand details on how to install tools, set up development environments, create their first application, and test applications on the simulator.

Re: BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS Released!

Awesome.  Been waiting for this.


My biggest stuggle with WebWorks development has been dealing with the differences between BB OS 5.0 and 6.0, so I'm cringing a little after having just glanced at the PlayBook API.  It is not the same as the WebWorks/Widget API.


I assume the differences mean that not all existing WebWorks apps (for BB OS 5.0/6.0) can be ported to the PlayBook at this time.   I realize the PlayBook SDK is an early release.  I hope there will be convergence down to a single WebWorks API (and runtime) soon.
