Research In Motion (RIM) has announced the BlackBerry Widget SDK to enable third-party application developers to build rich, integrated applications for BlackBerry smartphones using common web technologies. With the BlackBerry Widget SDK, developers can build web-based applications for BlackBerry smartphones with advanced features and functionality, a capability only previously available for BlackBerry applications written in Java.
“BlackBerry Widgets open up a world of opportunities for developers to build and bring to market web applications for BlackBerry smartphones that offer advanced, integrated functionality and an always-on user experience,” says RIM’s Alan Brenner. “We are very excited by the prospects of this new widget development platform which combines the ease of development of standard web languages with the rich functionality of Java development.”
Support for BlackBerry Widgets will be available on BlackBerry smartphones that run BlackBerry OS 5.0, which will include an enhanced BlackBerry Browser with support for Gears, SQLite, and the BlackBerry Widget APIs.
BlackBerry Widgets can be easily distributed over-the-air, via BlackBerry App World storefront, or through BlackBerry Enterprise Server in corporate environments.
