Christopher Smith, VP of BlackBerry Application Platform & Tools at RIM, was also on hand earlier today to speak during the keynote at BlackBerry Jam. He went over how they are going to put all the SDK's, API's, and tool components in the developers hands to make sure their applications deliver the full integrated BlackBerry 10 experience. Also joining him on stage were representatives from Cisco and Foursquare to discuss their experience with all of the tools (native and open source) that RIM has made available.

At just around 40 minutes you get to see the enthusiasm that both Chris and the developers have for these new tools. Be sure to check out the video above to see all of the great features demoed.

You can tell some of these devs have had a lot of caffeine :P. overall everything looks to be running smoothly. hopefully if they havent jumped on board yet instagram starts looking at this and decided to make an app. wishful thinking isnt that bad

As he was boasting a lot about the browser, and other apps, being largely web based tech and html5, I couldn't help but think about Zuckerberg and the Facebook app for iOS. It was similar, in that it was html5 with a native wrapper. It is my understanding that he changed it recently because of performance issues and he admitted it was a mistake to write the app. that way. Has RIM succeeded where Facebook failed?
