Thanks To Leak, BlackBerry PlayBook Owners Can Now Enjoy Some Android BETA Goodness

If anyone just so happens to own RIM‘s answer to the tablet craze entitled the PlayBook, you’ll be happy to know that thanks to a small leak, owners can now sideload and enjoy the Android App Player (BETA). We knew during its release that there would be Android compatibility at some point, we just didn’t think it would be this soon.  As far as we know, RIM can’t even get a native email client on the device?  The best thing about it so far though, is the inability to control it. Swipe gestures are your only way of working it at the moment which is neat, but limited.

If we have any BlackBerry PlayBook owners here (hopefully you use it for work, and not pleasure), then feel free to give this a try and let us know what’s going on. It’s good to see Android starting to creep into the world of the competition finally. For download, click the via link.

    You couldn’t give me a PlayBook. I saw one in an Office Depot and I chuckled when I picked it up. The bezel is huge, making the screen look that much smaller. What a waste of raw materials.

      If I had to choose between a blackberry playbook on a stool or an Ipad on a stool i would choose the stool so i can smash both devices and gain a little bit of happiness.

    what the hell is a blackberry playbook? HAHA

    • Paul Angus

      I could be wrong but I do believe a blackberry playbook is a book with pictures of berries in it. Its very popular in Russia and parts of Asia.

    The Playbook™ is just one big RIM job!

    Hopefully there won’t be anyone that admits to purchasing one of these. Not with the good options that are out there.

    • Paul Angus

      I purchased 3 though. One of them was for my everyday use and the other 2 were spares in case I ever forgot to charge the first 1.
