RIM will launch two optional “app players” that provide an
application run-time environment for BlackBerry Java apps and
Android v2.3 apps. These new app players will allow users to
download BlackBerry Java apps and Android apps from BlackBerry App
World and run them on their BlackBerry PlayBook.
In addition, RIM will shortly release the native SDK for the
BlackBerry PlayBook enabling C/C++ application development on the
BlackBerry® Tablet OS. For game-specific developers, RIM is also
announcing that it has gained support from two leading game
development tooling companies, allowing developers to use the
cross-platform game engines from Ideaworks Labs and Unity
Technologies to bring their games to the BlackBerry PlayBook.
