Adobe Air Logo Adobe AIR SDK 2.5 Launches for BlackBerry PlayBook, Android and iOS
When RIM announced their first tablet a few weeks ago, the BlackBerry PlayBook, Flash support was one of the big selling points. To that end, today at the Adobe MAX conference Adobe has launched a set of AIR development tools that work with the tablet’s new operating system, Neutrino by QNX. BlackBerry wasn’t the only platform getting some love, though; now that Apple is cool with third-party SDKs, iOS is included in this Adobe AIR update (though Flash is still presumably blocked), along with the usual Android support AIR has been talking about since February.
For those unfamiliar with Adobe AIR, it’s a development environment that encompasses not only Flash, but Adobe’s Flex, HTML and Ajax. AIR basically lets you create standalone applications using web languages without having to use a browser (something BlackBerry WebWorks still does).
It’s worth reminding that eventually the QNX operating system on the PlayBook will eventually find its way to BlackBerry smartphones, so even if Flash doesn’t make it to handsets before then, at least the new OS will be built from the ground-up with Flash in mind. The PlayBook promises to be a multimedia powerhouse, packing a 7″ 1024 x 600 capacitive touchscreen, and run on dual 1 GHz processors and 1 GB of RAM. Adobe’s SDK will support other tablets as well, so it’s really just a matter of manufacturers including the runtime on their tablets at launch in order to keep the playing field even.
Google seems to have a leg-up over RIM when it comes getting friendly with Adobe, having tested the AIR SDK in a private beta with Android developers for some time, but the Apple has definitely made their bed with Flash. That’s too bad for iPhone and iPad users, but many seem to be comfortable sticking with HTML5 for web development.
You can see some of the highlights in Adobe AIR 2.5 over here, or download the SDK here. If you’re particularly interested in developing for the PlayBook, hit up their getting started guide here.

Waze definitely better than other GPS mobile apps.

Waze?

Waze is a social driving and navigation app that connects you to other drivers (iphone, Android, BlackBerry) in order to get all the real-time road information you need. Just by driving around with waze open on your phone, you become part of an active community of drivers, that passively and actively update one another on traffic and other real-time road events. In short, it’s super useful and very cool (and of course FREE!!).

Rumoured BlackPad said to have same OS as military’s new Crusher vehicle

BlackPad

The rumoured BlackBerry tablet device dubbed the BlackPad will run an operating system that can also be found in a new US Army robot vehicle and the latest BMW cars, according to reports.

Speculation about the BlackPad first emerged at the end of July, when a Bloomberg report said Blackberry maker RIM was planning to launch a tablet with a 9.7″ touch screen as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity that would cost around £315.

US Military Crusher

Now, a new report on the news wire has revealed details of the operating system at the heart of the tablet – the existence of which has yet to be confirmed by RIM.

Bloomberg saidthat in an effort to distance the BlackPad from other tablets, most obviously the Apple iPad, RIM has opted to use QNX Software Systems’ operating system rather than its own forthcoming Blackberry OS6.

“The yet-to-be-announced tablet will run on software developed by QNX Software Systems, which RIM bought from Harman International Industries Inc. for $200m in April,” said the report.

As well as BMW cars, the software is being used in the US Army’s new Crusher all-terrain autonomous vehicle.

semicyber: With the new BMW OS being implemented inside the BlackPad which is also similar to autonomous US Army Crusher, I bet the iPad will look like a cheap toy that still cannot support flash.  The blackpadberry.com is now ready online however no contents being submitted yet.
