  • BlackBerry PlayBook Launches iOS Ported Game 30 Percent Faster


    So we've heard time and time again from iFanboys about how Apple products just work. Well, in a recent demonstration (see video above) with a iOS ported game to the BlackBerry PlayBook, developer, Charilaos Kalogirou, shows you how the PlayBook handles his game, Pop Corny, better than the iPad 2. Much better, in fact, by 30 percent.

    The bottom line is that given 2 devices with almost identical hardware (the same Dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9), running the same game, with the game optimized using the iOS device and only later ported to the Playbook, the Playbook manages to launch the app (load all textures, decompress them and upload to GPU, load sound effects, etc) 30% faster! In my book.. this is a huge achievement.
    The developer also talks about how impressed he is with how the PlayBook is engineered. And, that although he had never used the BlackBerry platform before, how he was able to come in and port the Pop Corny game in just a few days. Charilaos goes onto say...

    What is also amusing is how that 30% is calculated including the time the Playbook wastes doing “pre-launch” animations like pulling down the other app icons, pushing the app thumbnails left and the launching the actual app. And still managing to launch faster! It looks as it is mocking at the other device…!
    So you could only imagine just how much faster the PlayBook would be able to launch the game if there weren't any pre-launch stuff going on.

    Check out the video trailer below for a demo of the Pop Corny game in action. Pop Corny is available for the PlayBook tablet, and you can pick it up for only $1.99 in BlackBerry App World.
