OK, start your clocks!

Full source is at the end of the post.

To complete this tutorial, you must have Flash Builder Burrito with the BlackBerry PlayBook SDK installed and the BlackBerry simulator.

Here are the steps to build it.

Thats it, you now have an application that can deploy to both Android and PlayBook.

Here is the full source.

In the next installment, we will make this a Tabbed application!

    FYI – your source link in broken. If the file is actually there, you may need to add fxp as an allowable MIME time in your web server.

    Great post. Thanks!

    Rich, maybe you can add to this post on the Blackberry forums.
    http://supportforums.blackberry.com/t5/Tablet-OS-SDK-for-Adobe-AIR/Will-Adobe-Flex-Mobile-apps-be-approved/td-p/672551

    I’m trying to get confirmation that a Flex Mobile Project App, compiled with Hero SDK, targeting the Blackberry Playbook, would get approved by App World if it doesn’t explicitly use QNX components.

    My guess is that it would since Burrito is outputting the bar file.

    Thanks,

    Since Adobe has been working closely with RIM, I can’t image that an app built with AIR would be rejected for that reason. Yes, Burrito will generate the .bar file.

    Agree. But, there was some debate on which SDK you had to use to compile, Hero or QNX. Some were saying that you had to recompile using Blackberry SDK first. I just wanted clarification on the approval process. Because if the UI experience was not exactly like native QNX, I was concerned it wouldn’t be approved.

    At the last webcast on Thurs, Blackberry answered my question and confirmed that both Hero and/or QNX SDKs would be approved.

    Thanks,
    Don

    I love the playbook, but i couldnt get it stable not with vmware workstation or player. (on windows) , while i can run 2 win7 osses ot once so it is pure that there are no vmware tools avaible, and i have been thinking vmplayer is free for non commercial use, if i would make one dollar.. i’m guessing u run mac-os ?
    hope there will be a playbook version for either unix, or virtualbox

    Stupid question, but it’s not possible to build app with Adobe Flex for BlackBerry OS (NOT BlackBerry Tablet OS).

    That is correct. You can only build Flex 4.5 applications for the BlackBerry QNX operating system which is currently only on the PlayBook but will soon be on handsets as well.

    Do you know when it will be compatible ? Thank you for fast answer :)

    It will not ever be compatible with the older version of BlackBerry OS.
