RIM accepts BlackBerry PlayBook apps

RIM today began accepting BlackBerry PlayBook app submissions for an eventual posting to BlackBerry App World. The primarily AIR- and Flash-based apps that pass approval should go up when the PlayBook releases early next year. Developers can write apps in Linux, the Mac and Windows, with recent addition bringing 64-bit Windows development and emulation support in Linux.

The company also provided details (link active soon) of its promised free developer PlayBooks. Code writers will need to both register as developers and successfully get an app approved before the PlayBook section of App World goes live. Only one PlayBook will be available for each officially registered developer, RIM said.

Company co-CEO Mike Lazaridis unveiled the deal at the Adobe MAX conference in October as an incentive to developers, which are moving to an entirely new QNX-based platform that doesn't yet have much official support. Only a handful of companies, such as Amazon and Kobo, have pledged support so far.

    Playbook Apps

    I would like to see a good number of apps ready for Playbook
    before its launched. This apps list forms a main deciding
    factor in Playbooks success or failure.
