While it’s not quite the launch many of us are anticipating, the Popbox folks are releasing their Popapp SDK for developers today. In addition to transforming existing Adobe Flash applications into Popbox-specific experiences,
The popbox SDK hooks into the popbox UI to handle remote commands, execute widgets, and load application-specific data. Developers will be able to create popapps that play videos, music, and photos, read and write content metadata, and access files on mounted drives and UPnP servers from the home network or media from the cloud.
I assume a number of developers will check it out. But many will also likely hold back, waiting to see how the platform does before investing resources. Related, we’ve got ourselves a (new, somewhat vague) launch time frame of second quarter. However, I’ve confirmed we’re still on target for a very competitive $129.
