Submission + - An Exploration of BlackBerry 10's Programming API (slashdot.org)

Nerval's Lobster writes: BlackBerry 10 is completely different from previous BlackBerry operating systems—with good reason. Its core assets come from a company named QNX, which Research In Motion acquired in 2010. Blackberry 10 features include “live tiles” that dynamically refresh with new information, as well as a revamped keyboard and security upgrades. But what really makes or breaks a phone is the quality (and quantity) of its third-party apps. Jeff Cogswell pokes through the BlackBerry 10 programming API in a quest to see what app developers can do with the platform, and how it compares on that front to Apple iOS and Google Android. His conclusion? Although some of the underlying components are showing their age, BlackBerry has "spent a lot of time building up a foundation for a good development community." There's lots more at the link, including BlackBerry 10's viability for porting apps and building games. But will developers actually work with a platform with such low market-share?
