I agree. I do contract iOS and Android development and started ramping on Playbook in December using Adobe Air. Now, I think I'll just wait until Android support is available.Realizing that resources are limited:
1) I support iOS, it's the largest paying market.
2) I support android as its probably the second largest.
Now - do I spend my limited resources making a special playbook version? Or do I go..meh I'll spend a little time tweaking my android version.
I think support for BlackBerry Java was added to protect the investments of existing business customers with in-house BlackBerry apps, with the goal of preventing them from adopting the iPad and Android tablets. I doubt consumer app developers will use BlackBerry Java (which I've read is more difficult to learn).
