One of the tools that Research In Motion has made available for download for developers interested in building applications for its upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform is the BlackBerry 10 SDK for Adobe AIR, now in a beta version.
Through this SDK, devs can design Adobe AIR applications and have them ready for distribution as soon as the platform becomes available.
The SDK also offers support for easy adapting and deployment of existing Adobe AIR/Flash content, while also offering the possibility to access native APIs with Adobe AIR Native Extensions.
Additionally, the development kit enables the building of applications with a native BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha look and feel.
To get started, app builders will first have to download the BlackBerry 10 SDK for Adobe AIR
Beta on Windows computers.
They can also grab the BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha Simulator
to test their applications.
