    Hey guys,

    As you may know RIM is going to release their latest BlackBerry 10 phones in Q1 2013. I met one of their guy by accident on a forum and he convinced me to have a look at their SDK. I must admit that I was extremely impress. My engine C++ is already cross platform friendly (based on OpenGl, OpenAl) but still, I was able to port my entire engine in just few hours. Very, very impressed by the tools and how dev friendly the whole experience was. I've been through my whole portfolio and finally ported all my Apps in a ridiculously short amount of time. Here is a quick interview I had with the RIM's guys:

    and if you want to look at the SDK it's here:

    Yeah, it was fun participating :)

    If only Android could learn from RIM about tools and dev friendliness, that would be nice.

    Much obliged - having an actual email address seems to be making all the difference.
