BlackBerry PlayBook Gets AIRed and SDK Flashed at Adobe Show

RIM’s BlackBerry PlayBook has had its maiden voyage today and took centre stage at Adobe’s MAX conference in Los Angeles. This coincided nicely with the device’s SDK being released to developers.

As I mentioned only yesterday – the PlayBook supports Adobe’s Flash and AIR and RIM seem to be hoping that will set it apart from its competitors (iPad).

The operational demo does look rather slick I have to admit.

Developers looking to produce content for the BlackBerry PlayBook can now download the device’s SDK and RIM co-CEO, Mike Lazaridis, promises that all those that get their PlayBook app approved into the BlackBerry App World will be handed a freebie RIM tablet.
