A little bit of the Android Market on the PlayBook

A couple of days ago, the Android App-Player for the PlayBook tablet was leaked. It’s a beta build that gives is a little idea of how the 2 operating systems will merge. Essentially the PlayBook will be running the full Android experience like an app. You scroll to the Android App-Player, and launch the app. Once its up and running, you have access to the browser, Gmail, Google maps, etc. Well, now we have video of how the Android Market should work.

    RIM Said the Playbook would run some parts of Android. Its great seeing Blackberry adopting Android. It should help RIM in the long run probably

      I think it will too, but the overall picture isn’t good. The market can only handle so many different operating systems. Clearly the limit has been reached, which doesn’t bode well for HP (TouchPad and Pre). At least RIM has decided to try this.
