A look at options available to BlackBerry developers.
It’s a known fact that the current BlackBerry platform isn’t as big as the iOS or Android platforms when it comes to applications. One of the reasons is that the BlackBerry platform has traditionally not been the easiest one to write applications for. However, with the release of BlackBerry OS6, RIM started supporting HTML5 as an added platform to their devices. With the release of PlayBook and moving forward with BB10 devices coming up later this year, RIM has gone all out by adding support for the Adobe AIR framework, a QNX native SDK based on C/C++ and an Android Player to port Android apps over. Tim Neil was present at BlackBerry DevCon Europe and talks about all these platforms and where, which one makes more sense.
