Gears future

In light of Google's announcement that they will no longer develop Gears and phase it out in favour of HTML 5, how will this affect the Widget SDK?

Re: Gears future

As the HTML 5 standards evolve, RIM will also be looking to provide corresponding support in the browser rendering engine that is shared by both the native BlackBerry browser and BlackBerry Widget SDK.


At this point in time, there are no current plans to end the support for Gears in BlackBerry Widgets or the Browser.
