Mobile Development is Exploding – Hello PlayBook!

Mobile Development is Exploding – Hello PlayBook!

I didn’t go to Adobe Max this year (yes I’ve kicked myself) but I think some of the news and tools that were announced there have me extremely excited! One of the more exciting items was RIM’s announcement surrounding the Playbook and Adobe AIR. The coolest part of the announcement, the free PlayBook for any vendor with an approved app in the BlackBerry App World (details here). Go BlackBerry – sounds like a generous reward for getting some apps built!

Needless to say, I’ve started playing around with the PlayBook SDK and have compiled a list of resources that helped me to get going.

Getting things up and running on the Mac was pretty straight forward.

Win 7 64bit was  a different story. The installer says it doesn’t support 64bit. There is salvation though thanks to kurlu.com you can force the installer to use a 32-bit JDK.

UPDATE (11/18/2010):

The PlayBook Simulator with a couple "out-of-the-box" apps playing nicley.

I got the PlayBook environment up and running and just for kicks tried to get a few of the apps that I’ve been working on.In the image above the selected app is a Flex 4.5 (Hero) based app. The app on the right is an ActionScript 3 based app. No code was changed to accommodate the PlayBook and 95% of everything in both apps  is working. The only thing that isn’t working off the bat was the video playback in the AS3 project – I did expect that though.
