  • BlackBerry PlayBook runs Android Apps

    The RIM press release today had a bit of info that has me now very interested in a PlayBook (which I already was interested).

    They confirmed the Java VM on the PlayBook will be the same that’s on Android devices allowing Android apps to somewhat natively run on one PlayBook. I wonder if this will create a patch war like Apple and Palm had when the Palm WebOS had native iTunes support and Apple continually updated iTunes to break the support.

    The PlayBook will also have native C/C++, HTML5, Flash, and AIR dev environments.

     

    The dev potentials are quite large. I’m interested to see how it competes in the crowded tablet market.
