Sencha has released an update to their Sencha Touch framework that brings support for the BlackBerry 6 operating system, announced BalckBerry today.

"For those unfamiliar with Sencha Touch, it's an impressive web framework based entirely on HTML5, CSS and JavaScript designed to bring an incredibly powerful set of components to help create web apps that look and feel like native apps."

Sencha Touch 1.1 not only brings support for BlackBerry 6-enabled touch devices such as the BlackBerry Torch 9800 smartphone, but it also supports upcoming PlayBook tablet.

"To get started, developers should download the framework, and then check out Sencha Touch Learning Center, where they'll find code samples, videos and tutorials. To get an idea of what's possible using the framework, there're a variety of demo apps showcasing the breadth and power of the platform," stated BlackBerry.

"To help encourage developer community to adopt Sencha Touch web framework, the comapny is offering a free Torch 9800 smartphone to the first ten developers that submit an app to BlackBerry App World storefront using the new framework for either Torch 9800 or PlayBook tablet," revealed BlackBerry.
