BlackBerry Playbook Will Support Android Applications

RIM has made good movement, as for me the company attempts to keep the interest of tablet fans on their BlackBerry Playbook or potential buyers by offering the Android apps compatible.

And yes, recently the Canadian-based company has announced their Playbook running on OS 2.0 software (at least) will be supporting Android applications in the near future.

And all the Android applications will be listed in their App World, and available both free or paid. And invite all the Android app developers to repackage their apps to be compatible with Playbook with 0S 2.0, as well as BlackBerry 10 devices.

Therefore, they are pleased to decide to open access for Android applications availability once BlackBerry Playbook OS 2.0 launched.

However RIM set number of rules before the applications to be approved. Here they are.
