I recently became aware of the Research In Motion (RIM aka Blackberry) Playbook. In fact, I actually got to see one at the recent AdobeMAX conference. As many of you know, I am starting to put together resources for development in mobile environments. RIM has an emulator (and many other resources) for this device. Details can be found at http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/. In addition, there are a series of webcasts surrounding development for this new device. Those can be found at: http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/devresources.jsp. Since some of the readers for this group may well want to develop for this environment, you should also be aware of an offer presently being presented by RIM. Details can be found at: http://devblog.blackberry.com/2010/10/blackberry-playbook-developer-promotion-information/.
As I understand it, you develop an application for this device, submit it, have it approved prior to the official launch of the device (sometime in the first quarter of next year, I believe), and you will get a Playbook. Details of this promotion are at the link above. Although I typically don't use this venue for posting informaiton other than meetings, I thought this was a great opportunity.
