BlackBerry PlayBook demoed as SDK is made available

Free PlayBook for all successful app developers

RIM’s attempt at an iPad challenging tablet, the BlackBerry PlayBook, has been demoed for the first time at Adobe’s MAX conference in Los Angeles as the device’s SDK is officially released to developers ahead of the product's launch early in 2011.

Just weeks ago the PlayBook was officially by announced RIM at its develop conference in San Francisco despite the models on display being nothing more than non-functional dummies encased in Plexiglas  and seen running video demos on a loop.

The operational demo at the Adobe conference is the first time the PlayBook has been seen in working order and highlights the out-of-the-box Flash and Air support that is being pegged as the BlackBerry tablet’s killer blow.

Developers looking to produce content for the BlackBerry PlayBook can now download the device’s SDK with RIM co-CEO, Mike Lazaridis, taking to the LA stage to declare that all devs who have a PlayBook app approved into the BlackBerry App World will be on the receiving end of a free RIM tablet.

See below for the full demo of the upcoming iPad competitor and share your thoughts and views of the BlackBerry PlayBook via the T3 Twitter and Facebook feeds.
