We turbo-boosted the BlackBerry PlayBook browser – can your web apps keep up? [VIDEO]

Web Development

In my post “Building stable web apps – you can do it with the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet OS 2.0 software update”, I wrote about the improvements in BlackBerry® PlayBook™ OS 2.0. I’ve since had a few of my developer friends ask about a comparison video – a great idea! Here’s a video that demonstrates what web developers can really do to leverage some of the powerful hardware accelerated capabilities of the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0 browser.
