The BlackBerry maker Research In Motion VP of Developer Relations Alec Saunders comment on reports that the company would remove the ability to sideload PlayBook apps through the BlackBerry Developer Blog. Saunders few days ago said that the company is removing sideloading for consumers through twitter but now says that the company is not.
RIM’s statement to The Verge on this: We are looking at different options including removal or evolution of our current side loading functionality. In the event that we do decide to go down that path, we will definitely work with developers to ensure we have a fully functioning way for them to test applications on hardware. However, we haven’t finalized or officially announced any plans yet.
@Spy520e we’re removing sideloading for consumers.Pretty sure we’ve got a solution for devs.
