WATERLOO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 11, 2012) - Research In Motion (RIM) today released the "gold" build of the BlackBerry 10 developer toolkit. The "gold" build includes all of the final tools, components, and APIs that will enable developers to create integrated, social and beautiful applications for BlackBerry 10, and have the confidence that their apps will delight customers at launch. Native C/C++ and Qt developers can use BlackBerry Cascades to build visually stunning applications that offer deeper integration with core feature elements, such as BlackBerry Hub, than any other mobile platform today. HTML5 developers can use BlackBerry WebWorks to create compelling and rich web applications for BlackBerry 10 devices that deliver native-like performance and take advantage of core integration as well. BlackBerry 10 tools are also available for building with Adobe AIR and porting Android applications to the platform.
I don't know many people with Blackberrys these days. Do you think that this will be good enough or will it be a case of too little too late Volker?
I don't know the future and I won't queue with those who pretend to know. I have a couple of clients who are not ready to dump the secure architecture that RIM provides, so there will be a market. The question is, will it be big enough.
I hope RIM makes it. Security is a must for me. I hope they keep the keyboard, because I am getting tired of all the touch screen phones. Nothing like a real keyboard.
I am always sad to see companies go as well so I do hope RIM makes it. Palm didn't which I thought was a great shame as I loved (and still have) the three devices I bought. And to be fair Volker that (Palm) is one company I do remember you raising red flags about and it's not the only one. :-)
Like with all enterprise solutions, there will be a place for Blackberry for a long time. Although I don't envisage growth in their marketshare.
