Although Cascades in a way stole the show at BlackBerry 10 Jam, there was plenty of other demos using other frameworks as well. Pete Graham, Director, Mobility, Financial Applications SAP was on hand to demo their preview app using HTML5 for the BlackBerry PlayBook. In the video, Pete not only explains how well HMTL5 works on the PlayBook but also how easy it is to then port that same app using HTML5 to various other BlackBerry smartphones due to the compatibility across the board.

SAP Labs demos power of HTML5 on the BlackBerry PlayBook and BlackBerry smartphones


Looking good for RIM & HTML5, But whats up with the dude in the tee shirt & jacket.. Really. So unprofessional.

I think he's supposed to look 'hip' or 'cool' or something.

It's not much worse than the other guy who's wearing a ridiculously casual button-down shirt -- the kind you'd wear to do work in your back yard.

Still, it's more professional than, say, the CEO giving a keynote in a black turtleneck, jeans, and tennis shoes.

LOL steve jobs is the first person that comes to my mind when you mentioned that outfit. Hahaha sorry just had to chuckle !

The screen transition back from the screen saver was very pleasing and nice, not jagged at all. Very Smooth, something a lot of other tablets don't do very well....

? a Playbook with silver bezel borders ?
Nice to ear again about SAP getting involved. It's a must-have partner for companies: great !

I wasn't sure if I saw that but when you did saw it as well it is true. *interesting*

perhaps a 3G/4G device prototype?

I was really impressed with the 9900 in this case :)

*****I want that now*****

full integrated software in BBs and PBs.

It is really great for presentations.

Though on 7" its a lil bit small but still awesome (and 7" has other benefits to 10" ;) )

I stared to use my PB to show Reports (from MS Excel), sadly real MS Excel would be so powerfull (but MS will only offer that on Windows 8 Tablets and phones... :_/ )
