Android Apps Also Coming to BlackBerry Phones

April 6th, 2011 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Platforms: AndroidOS, Platforms: BlackBerry | No Comments »

Last Monday, we met some folks from RIM that were lorrying a PlayBook around in Holland. Of course we took it for a sweet little spin (we weren’t at MWC), but there’s more to this story.

So first off, the PlayBook is just cool. It looks great and is really responsive. We couldn’t play around with an Android app on the platform yet as that was still under development and a crash would not be nice in the press.

Next to the news that Android Apps would have to be downloaded from BlackkBerry App World, the RIM employee managed to tell us that running Android apps would not be limited to the PlayBook. The exact same functionality will also come to BlackBerry phones, though probably with the next version of the OS (that is the same as on the PlayBook).

For those buying the RIM PlayBook, RIM will make an app available to sync the device with a phone. Sadly enough (but understandable), RIM will only support sync from a BlackBerry phone.
