I got myself a Blackberry Playbook 64GB and I've been having some fun lately, man that QNX OS that BB is using is a fantastic little operating system, I just love it.
As with most tablets, there is not very much in the way of serious database applications available for the ever hungry consumer market to feast upon, I think FileMaker
has ported Bento to the iPad and iPhone. This got me to thinking that if there was port of MySQL, Apache, PHP and WCF to Blackberry's QNX OS then that would be a
killer developer environment for all kinds of database apps (and probably many other apps) on the Blackberry platform. I know that BB is in the process of developing
phones to use their BB 10 OS (their next generation OS), so their phones and tablets will have a common OS. I thought the size of porting MAPW might be a problem, but
then some of the games for the Playbook are in the 300 MB range and I don't think a MAPW installation would take up that much room. Not being a Super Techie Geek-Nerd
myself, I'm not really certain if this idea has any merit, or if it is even doable, but it sure would be nice to have some kind of database capabilities on the tablet platform
that isn't dependent on me storing my info on someone else's server. Now, would this be possible, or should I put down the Crack Pipe and worry about other things?
