BlackBerry Debuts SDK for BlackBerry OS 10.3
BlackBerry today made an SDK available to developers for its unreleased BlackBerry 10.3 operating system. The SDK provides developers with the tools they need to create apps that will function properly in the forthcoming OS update. BlackBerry didn't share too many details about the new SDK, but said it offers styling guidelines and user interface changes for apps. BlackBerry also teased some new hardware. It explained to developers that the SDK provides support for its traditional BBOS screens of 720 x 720 pixels (square) and 1280 x 720 pixels (16:9). The company added a new screen size and resolution that will measure 4.5 inches across the diagonal and include 1440 x 1440 pixels. This device will have a large, high-resolution square screen and a keyboard, much like the Q30 does. BlackBerry said more details about the phone will be made public later this year. In the meantime, developers can download the SDK for BlackBerry OS 10.3 and get to work on apps.
