Sencha Touch on Blackberry Playbook?
Does anyone know if there's any way to get Sencha Touch to work on the Blackberry Playbook?
The Playbook is supposed to have a webkit browser and other HTML5 content such as the HTML5 Asteroids game works fine: http://www.kevs3d.co.uk/dev/asteroids/
Any help would be much appreciated!

If it has a WebKit browser, it will work. It just depends if the browser they deploy will be advanced enough but I'm sure it will do almost everything you want.Mitchell Simoens @LikelyMitch

I expect once a new version of the sim is published (coming weeks) that this issue will be resolved. Please keep me posted of your PlayBook application dev progress.

Thanks for the replies both!
Adam, great it's being looked into!
I have an AIR app submitted for aproval but would like to create a WebWorks app as well and the Sencha framework would make the app so much more interactive.
I'll keep an eye on both this and the thread on the BB forum for the fix!

Just wanted to update this after trying the latest version of the Playbook emulator. The carousel demo is now working fine! Looks like most if not all of the Sencha stuff works in the latest version.

Still missing IsPlaybook and isTablet integration
Sencha Touch works very well now on the playbook. However there are still some elements missing.
there needs to be a command something along the lines of is.Playbook. Also Playbook needs to be recognized in is.Tablet.
Other then that Looks Amazing!

Agree with the other posters: my Sencha Touch demo apps seem to work very well in the latest Playbook simulator.
One question to the Blackberry guys if they are reading this: will it be possible (or is it possible) to save a web app to the home screen as an icon as per the iPhone/iPad, and then run the app full-screen so it appears to be the same as a Native app?

This might seem like a stupid question, but does anyone know how you're supposed to safely/cleanly shut down the Playbook simulator VM in VMWare? I can just suspend it I suppose. Or is it OK to just tell VMWare to shut the VM down - or can that leave the VM in a mess?

Playbook "isPlaybook" and "isTablet" fix
if anyone is is interested here is a fix for the isPlaybook and isTablet commands:
Ext.is.Playbook = navigator.userAgent.match(/Playbook/i) != null; Ext.is.Blackberry = Ext.is.Blackberry || Ext.is.Playbook; Ext.is.Tablet = Ext.is.iPad || Ext.is.Playbook; Ext.is.Phone = !Ext.is.Desktop && !Ext.is.Tablet; Ext.is.iOS = Ext.is.iPhone || Ext.is.iPad || Ext.is.iPod; Ext.is.Standalone = !!window.navigator.standalone;
