BlackBerry PlayBook WebWorks SDK now available to developers

Before today, if you wanted to develop an app for RIM's upcoming BlackBerry PlayBook tablet you were stuck with an Adobe Air SDK for the device. Now, however, RIM has released the WebWorks SDK -- first announced in September of 2010 -- which gives developers the ability to create apps using standard Web code like HTML5, JavaScript, and CSS. That should make it a relatively painless procedure to port apps from other platforms which are built on Web technologies.

The WebWorks SDK is available for download from RIM now, and interested developers should definitely grab it -- especially since RIM is offering a free PlayBook to developers of certain kinds of apps (launchers, repackaged browsers, and soundboards need not apply).
