    "The BlackBerry Native SDK for Tablet OS provides game developers with a native C/C++ mobile development environment."

    While it is the optimal way to create a game, I wonder why they only highlight game development and not mention application development.

    Meh, might still apply and get it working...

    There is probably no UI package available other than Open GL ES, which may mean there are (for example) no native "widgets" and such provided. For games, which build their own UI entirely from scratch, that's fine. For some app authors, trying to compete with AIR apps may be difficult with the first release.

    Agreed, might be more work than it's worth. Hoping TAT adds some UI elements that give developers the options to do some amazing things!

    The videochat app is all native code. It's not the worst looking thing in the world.

    Signed up. Be interested to see how much this NDK caters to low-level development and if more high-level developers like myself will find it hard to learn.

    Hopefully soon, I'm just dying to get my hands on the NDK and start pumping out some 2&3D games

    I'm seriously considering learning how to code. The idea of thousands downloading and hopefully enjoying something I've created would make me happy lol
