RIM终于想通了-RIM开放新的API

RIM终于想通了-RIM开放新的API

看来RIM终于想通了,在前一篇文章Blackberry阻碍因素中提到了社区的支持,其第三方软件太少,这会严重阻碍RIM的发展。这不,RIM的Press上明明白白写到,在2007年3月27日,

   RIM Opens New BlackBerry APIs to Support Growth in Mobile Applications

意思就是说RIM开放新的BlackBerry API以支持移动应用程序的增长。
关于API的重要性我不多讲了,还是看前面的文章吧。
在开放的API包括(来自官方网站):

  • 移动多媒体API  这年头这个都不支持的话,那也就有点太落伍了,什么听音乐和看电影就得要。不然让你死的难看。
  • 摄像机API     你说现在有哪一款移动设备不带摄像头。流行!
  • 支持MP3,WAV,AAC,AMR音频格式的API 这个更加不用说了
  • XML以及Web Services  无语,还记得那个时候想调用一个web service,那简直晕菜。差点没写个库来调用web serviceå’ŒXML,想想今天都后悔,要不然我自己写好了去卖,:).
  • BlackBerry Messenger API  IM大行其道,不做不行
  • 文件系统  BB的文件格式可真的保密,专业人员都不知道,更加不用说非专业的人员了。大家看了都是一头雾水。很多网友都问我文件格式的问题,说实话我也无语。
  • 3D图形API  BB的图像界面还是可以的,至于3D,有点夸张,至少对现在的机器而言。不过开放了好。促进他的发展。
  • MMS Java API 这种东西就好像在中国通过GPRS上网一样。毕竟MMS在国外不太流行,不过中国则是大行其道。我以前还发过几个呢。对于我这种不爱发短信的人来说,也是一个福音。

从以上可以看出,RIM的CEO Jim Balsillie 看来是越来越前卫了,大脑也是开窍了。我是举双手赞成。当然,开放这些API的最主要API恐怕是其他对手的竞争压力,看看Windows Mobile,iPhone, Palm,还有巨头Nokia,一款E系列的手机就足以让Jim紧张一下。

不管怎么说,这是一个福音。

看看原文:

  • Mobile Multi-Media API for Java (JSR 135) allowing developers to embed custom audio and video content into applications; invoke the BlackBerry Media Player to play video or audio content; record audio or voice and save recorded files to the handset or send it over the Internet
  • Camera APIs that allow developers to invoke the camera application and access pictures taken with the camera; support for registering listeners with the Camera application that enable an application to be notified when a new picture is taken
  • Support for MP3, WAV, WMA, AAC and AMR audio formats with support for routing audio playback to the external speaker, connected headset and Bluetooth® headset
  • XML and Web Services support to help simplify communications with existing Internet applications
  • BlackBerry Messenger APIs allowing access to presence and contact information and the ability to send peer-to-peer messages
  • File System Access APIs (JSR 75) to provide access to documents and other files stored locally on the smartphone or on the microSD expansion memory; support for registering listeners with the file system that enable an application to be notified when a new files are added or removed
  • GPS APIs (JSR 179) that provide access to location information from local GPS chip or external GPS receiver connected over Bluetooth
  • BlackBerry Maps API providing access to the map application to display an address or a route with BlackBerry Maps providing all of the geo-coding and mapping data for free
  • Wallpaper and Ringtone Customization Java APIs to enable custom applications to add new wallpapers and ringtones to the smartphone
  • Planned support for 3D Graphics API (JSR 184) and SVG API (JSR 226) to enable more powerful gaming and rich-media content
  • Planned support for MMS Java APIs (JSR 205) to complement the existing SMS and Phone APIs which enable third party applications to listen for incoming phone calls and SMS messages, invoke the phone application to place a call, and compose SMS messages for peer-to-peer messaging

   P.S:本文本来应该在几天前就发出了,这部等到今天才发,工作太忙了!
