One of the selling points that were announced for the BlackBerry PlayBook was its ability to run Android apps – which meant that there would be no shortage of apps at launch despite the fact that it was running a brand new operating system. Well, the BlackBerry PlayBook launched, and Android app support was nowhere to be found. It’s been many months since then, and Android app support wasn’t anywhere to be seen – until now.
A video of the PlayBook running a beta version of PlayBook OS 2.0 was recently posted online and the video showed the tablet running a couple of Android apps. What’s impressive about the demonstration is that the apps ran smoothly without any hitches at all. This definitely bodes well for PlayBook users who have been complaining about the lack of apps available for the tablet. Now all we need is for RIM to push the OS update as soon as possible.
