I was just surfing the interwebs and came across a very interesting update that AT&T has made to their website… Apparently AT&T has outed the fact that they will be offering BlackBerry 10 smartphones! I found this outed information from within their developer pages. AT&T’s developer pages are set up for developers to get their hands on any information about developing applications for Android, BlackBerry, webOS and others. AT&T has all of the different BlackBerry 10 software developer kits and one very interesting thing…. Be sure to check out the full gallery below.
That one very interesting thing is a section dedicated to the introduction of BlackBerry 10:
BlackBerry 10 is an upcoming proprietary platform developed by RIM for its BlackBerry line of smartphones and tablets. The BlackBerry 10 platform supports applications written in C/C++ as well as HTML5-based applications. Apps created using BlackBerry WebWorks and HTML5 for BlackBerry OS, as well as apps created with the Native SDK for BlackBerry PlayBook OS are compatible with the BlackBerry 10 platform. More details on BlackBerry 10 including access to the SDK and other development tools are available on the BlackBerry Developer Program website. Details regarding additional BlackBerry smartphone OS versions can be found on the software update section of the BlackBerry website.
