Blackberry SDK

I've been considering a development project for the Blackberry, so I downloaded the Blackberry SDK from RIM. I was pleasantly surprised:

It looked quite complete (having looked at J2ME a few years ago, yuck!)

They included many examples, including some that would be difficult without an example, i.e. Bluetooth Serial

All in all, I'm quite impressed with the level of effort that obviously went into producing this SDK, and it is nice to see device makers actually courting developers.

I'm hoping to do some comparisons or at least an evaluation of Google's Open Handset Alliance/Android toolkit, so watch this space after the 12th of November (when the toolkit is due).
