PLAYBOOK OS 2 BROWSER 1ST IN HTML5 RANKING! and…?

This news is very encouraging, we found the work we did for the playbook BBX V 1 hard going as the webworks API was very limited.

I hope the BB london is as good in theses scores.  The fundamental question remains – how will this help organisations who have to target the older platforms too.??#

There is no real migration path. We have no choice but to build our apps using the Java engine as webworks is so poor on the older devices (BB OS 7 6 and 5) – OS 6 scores 247 and 7 only 266…. And that is for the browser itself not the webworks API. This means we cannot use it for building rich apps. So to target the majority of users of blackberry devices TODAY we have to use java. We would love to go HTML5 but cannot. OS 6 and 7 will be around for a long time yet so we have no choice to develop for both platforms.

I suspect that most orgs will end up porting over their android apps rather than re-writing them for BB10. When they introduced QNX why didn’t they think 1st about porting over what they have got already – give us a JVM, the line I’ve heard from Alec and his team has been well it just isn’t possible is just false… if they can build an android runtime (and Droid is based on java) then they could build a runtime for their current java implementation. This would have made 100% more sense than releasing the Cascades SDK or supporting Flash… Look after your existing customers first, deliver them exceptional service then it will make sure you can cater for new ones in the future.
