    Take a look at this link. You can then choose AIR or Web Works.
    BlackBerry - Tablet OS - Calling All Apps for the BlackBerry Tablet OS

    The developer forums are a good place to research and ask/answer questions.

    Adobe Flash Builder is what I use - but that can be costly.

    Not totally sure what others are using, but that's what I'm going with.

    You'll also need the
    - blackberry-tablet-sdk-1.1.0
    - BlackBerry WebWorks SDK for TabletOS 2.1.0.6 (if you're going that route)
    - Adobe AIR SDK
    - Signing keys

    I'd take a look here: http://us.blackberry.com/developers/tablet/adobe.jsp

    Follow the steps in that link and use the Blackberry Developer forum to search for snags you might run into about the simulator and debug tokens (the 2 most common headaches).

    So to develop with AIR you must purchase AIR for the desktop or is that a freebie if you own, say the Adobe Creative Suite?

    You don't buy AIR... AIR's the runtime environment from Adobe which comes with your PlayBook, and which you can download freely for your desktop machine.

    There are non-free development tools from Adobe (and presumably elsewhere), including Flash Builder which is the biggy they push for this.

    Some of us just use the command line tools in the SDK, and a text editor, and various other tools, and don't pay a dime (legally! ).

    Thanks -
    So AIR is kind of a script player?
    Is Flash Builder different than Flash? Forgive my newbeeness, I'm a graphic designer for GUI's, not a programmer and interested in animating some graphics on Playbook (with touch controls) designed with Flash.
