Message Text: Research In Motion (RIM) today launched the beta version of the BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS and new services and developer tools for BlackBerry smartphones at BlackBerry DEVCON Asia.

BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for Tablet OS

The BlackBerry WebWorks platform will allow web and mobile developers to use the SDK in combination with their web development tools of choice to create applications for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet that also support BlackBerry smartphones running the BlackBerry 6 operating system:

* RIM's WebKit web rendering engine (which is at the core of WebWorks) supporting the latest web technology standards including HTML5, CSS and JavaScript
* Access to device capabilities and components such as native dialogs, application invocation and system information
* A command-line tool that allows developers to use their favorite web development environment to develop WebWorks applications
* The capability to automatically transform a W3C widget archive file containing web assets into a BlackBerry WebWorks application package

New Services and Tools for BlackBerry Smartphones

At BlackBerry DEVCON Asia, RIM also launched the BlackBerry Payment Service SDK in Beta, as well as an update of the BlackBerry Push Service SDK (v 1.0.1) and a new release of the BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse (version 1.3).

Integrated into an application as a library, the BlackBerry Payment Service offers new ways to monetize applications by allowing developers to incorporate options such as subscriptions, feature unlocking and pay per use.

The latest update to the BlackBerry Push Service SDK improves the management of Push operations for Content Providers through a new Subscription Check API, offers simpler Statistics Gathering and Query Capabilities as well as Installer enhancements. The new Subscription Check API provides the ability to check the registration status of a smartphone with the specific application via a server-side framework, ensuring Push only occurs to currently subscribed users of the application.

The BlackBerry Java Plug-in for Eclipse version 1.3 includes many enhancements and new features that help making Java development more productive on the BlackBerry platform.
