If you're looking to add in PDF and eBook support to any of the apps that you're currently developing, the Adobe Reader Mobile SDK maintained by Datalogics has been updated to provide support for the BlackBerry PlayBook and the upcoming BlackBerry 10 platform.

Now, third-party developers can make use of the technology and libraries that allows for downloading, managing and displaying of PDF and EPUB content, including that which is DRM-encoded.

There has been a lot of apps for the PlayBook that offer eBook and PDF rendering but with this release, those who opt to make use of the Adobe Reader Mobile SDK will be able to provide even broader support within their apps.

I don't care about the SDK, what I want is a better PDF Reader!


This is a step towards that. It's reasonably likely that we'll see a new Adobe Reader for BB10, but by making this SDK available developers can now incorporate better functionality into their own software.


Does this mean we will finally get a Native OverDrive App for the PlayBook?


or even better... a quality ebook reader that works with DRM and DRM free epub and adobe ebooks.

Then you could get your content from anywhere (diesel, booksOnBoard,sony ebook store,etc etc. and read it happily on your PB or other BB10 device).

Just makes getting reading material easy and open.
