AMSTERDAM: SMARTPHONE MAKER Blackberry has today showed off its Bluetooth Steelseries Free gamepad, an example of how Blackberry is partnering with games developers to integrate their technology into the Blackberry 10 SDK and make them native and unique.
Demoed by Blackberry's team lead for gaming research and development Sean Paul Taylor, the technology seen in the Steelseries Free gamepad allows easier development of gaming apps for the firm's new Blackberry 10 operating system (OS), without vendors having to write their own apps inside rival OS app stores such as Google's Play for Android or Apple's App Store for iOS.
Taylor said that this is a first on any mobile operating system and integrating APIs like this directly into technologies is what's going to make the Blackberry 10 OS unique while offering developers all the tools they want. µ
