You can access the hardware features of BlackBerry 10 devices using the BlackBerry 10 Native SDK. This includes input mechanisms such as the virtual keyboard and sensors (accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, etc.), notification mechanisms such as the LED and vibration, and information about the device such as PIN, locale, and battery state.
Use various standard communication protocols to add networking capabilities to your apps. You can also use these libraries to allow your apps to communicate with external devices.
