Yesterday I brought you news of RIM’s new BlackBerry PlayBook and even showed you a preview video. RIM has published a new page where developers can sign up for early access to the PlayBook’s Tablet OS Software Development Kit (SDK):
Research In Motion (RIM) is extremely excited about the opportunities available with the new BlackBerry® Tablet OS and its corresponding application platform. Building on the incredible power of the QNX operating system that’s uniquely suited for mobile, the BlackBerry Tablet OS will lay the foundation for the future while preserving the key investments that have made the BlackBerry platform so successful.
Here are some key details for the Tablet OS:
- Reliable, high-performance kernel engineered for multi-core hardware
- Multi-threaded POSIX OS (Portable Operating System for Unix) for true multitasking
- Built from the ground up to run WebKit and Adobe® Flash®
- Built with the security, efficiency and seamless connectivity from the ground up you’d expect from RIM
If you’re a developer who wants to get a jump-start on developing for the PlayBook, I highly recommend signing up for early access. For more info check out the Tablet OS Application Development page or register for early access here.
