Research In Motion is wasting no time in reaching out to developers when it comes to the BlackBerry PlayBook. As we've seen more recently in the past, Research In Motion will be hosting some upcoming webcasts all of which are dedicated to developing Adobe AIR application on the BlackBerry PlayBook. As the information tells us:

The first webcast of a five week series hosted by RIM and Adobe experts will start on November 4, 2010 and will provide developers the opportunity to learn more about creating Adobe AIR applications for the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet.  Developers interested in signing up for the webcast series can visit www.blackberry.com/developers/tabletos/webcasts.

With the SDK being released, Research In Motion is not only targetting previous BlackBerry developers but rather, any developer out there that has worked with multiple platforms. Rather than being limited to just the BlackBerry JDE developers can now make use of Flash, HTML, C++ and of course Adobe AIR 2.5.

Not being a developer, is this a normal scenario for new product? for example did Apple have developer webcasts or similar to entice developers?

This seems to give a warm fuzzy feeling that RIM are really going all out to have decent apps available at release.

Yes it is. Microsoft released silverlight and all of its app development tools shortly after WinPhone 7 was released along with the winphone7 envirnoment and Apple always releases the test versions of iOS to app devs shortly after an Announcement is made. RIM definitely is on the right track here.
