We’re pleased to announce that Adobe® DRM for EPUB (Digital Rights Management for eBooks) is now supported on BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablets and our upcoming BlackBerry® 10 smartphones.
Adobe® Reader Mobile SDK is a software development kit (SDK) enabling mobile device and software developers to embed PDF and eBook support into their products. This ecosystem is used worldwide by thousands of publishers, libraries and content providers selling and lending millions of eBooks.
Support comes by way of the Adobe Reader Mobile SDK (RM SDK) maintained by Datalogics. The Adobe Reader Mobile SDK is Adobe’s EPUB and PDF rendering technology for eBook apps and devices. It powers hundreds of apps and devices which act as the front end of Adobe’s end-to-end eBook ecosystem.
With the latest release of the SDK, third party companies can now build eReaders that view DRM-encoded content. If you have already licensed the RMSDK, BlackBerry PlayBook tablets and BlackBerry 10 smartphones are now automatically supported. Developers can now write apps for BlackBerry 10 and the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet that can easily download, manage, and display PDF content and eBooks.
Looking forward to hearing comments and suggestions from the BlackBerry dev community – let us know in the comments!
