With the new 2.0 OS, the Playbook gets a native email client, calendar and contacts apps. The email client was a much needed feature for the tablet and has been well designed for users on the go. The emails can be formatted in a rich style and can also be integrated with Gmail accounts. The contacts app is useful for consolidating contacts from different social networks such as Twitter and LinkedIn besides retrieving contacts from email accounts.

Based on the QNX Operating System, the Blackberry Tablet OS is supposed to be extremely powerful in computing, allowing developers to create powerful apps for their consumers. The new OS comes with significant changes beneficial to app developers. The OS now supports a runtime which allows running ofAndroid Apps, an updated Adobe AIR 3.0 platform for Flash developers, Webworks and Native API 2.0 libraries.

There are a list of important Android Development Tools to enable the repacking and signing of the Android app files to the .BAR file format which is the compatible file format required for an application to run on the Blackberry Tablet OS.

The tools for repacking Android Apps to Blackberry Tablet Apps include

  • The Eclipse Plug-in repackaging tool
  • Online Packager
  • Command-line repackaging tools.

Developers can choose a tool that suits their development flow and submit their packages apps to the Blackberry App World for distribution to the Blackberry tablet owners.
