At BlackBerry Jam Americas in San Jose on Tuesday, RIM released the latest update to the BlackBerry 10 development tools beta, providing developers with even greater capabilities and features for building powerful applications on the BlackBerry 10 platform. These improved capabilities and functions enable an unparalleled user experience on BlackBerry 10.

The updates to the beta software development tools continue to improve the ease and speed of development for BlackBerry 10 – the most open ecosystem in mobile today. Developers can choose to develop apps with the languages and frameworks they’re comfortable using – including; Native C/C++, Qt, HTML5, Adobe AIR and Android Java runtime technologies. Developers can use the skills and knowledge they already have to quickly and easily build high quality and engaging apps.

New features of the BlackBerry 10 development tools improve readability of code and increase efficiency and convenience when building and editing applications. Changes include:

  • BlackBerry 10 Core Applications

o   Software update for both the BlackBerry 10 simulator and BlackBerry 10 Dev Alpha now includes the core BlackBerry 10 message center, contacts, calendar, and BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) applications

o   Developers can now start to develop BBM enabled applications for BlackBerry 10 smartphones

o   Allows game developers to use their existing Microsoft Visual Studio tools to port their game titles to both the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and BlackBerry 10 smartphones

  • Updated Ripple Simulator
