BlackBerry is now on a fast sprint towards developing its software platform, where the BlackBerry SDK 10.2 already seems to be on its way. The beta update for this software platform brings some of the much awaited features. Some of these include the ability to run Android 4.2.2 apps and updates to the Adobe AIR3.5 runtime environment, which now has Stage3D available for acceleration of OpenGL graphics.

According the BlackBerry developer blog, there are also some more updates to the BlackBerry 10 Native SDK, while the HTML5 contributions from BlackBerry will also be coming in a future Apache Cordova release. While the updates have been released for Dev Alpha devices and are also available in the simulator, Android 4.2 testing is not supported in the simulator for the time being.

The latest update to the SDK can be downloaded from here. The release notes and known issues can be accessed from here. There are also newer Eclipse plugin tools available which will now allow you to target for newer Android SDK API levels. Simulator testing is something which is yet to come however in the coming months. While this is certainly exciting for the developers, it is even more interesting for the users, who will get to use the latest Android apps developed for the newer platforms.

Some of the other highlights of the additions to the latest native SDK include MiraCast support, Flurry Analytics supports and the newest QNX Momentics IDE. More details for the same can be accessed at the Native SDK release notes here. Since this is a beta release, if any issues are encountered, they can be reported at the issue tracker.
