Submission + - BlackBerry devices to run Android apps (bloomberg.com)

crankyspice writes: RIM is allegedly prepping the QNX-based operating system running their forthcoming PlayBook tablet to run Android applications, according to a Bloomberg article. As RIM has stated (http://www.engadget.com/2010/12/07/rims-mike-lazaridis-qnx-coming-to-blackberry-phones-when-dual/) that the QNX platform will run at least some of its upcoming smartphones as well, this could cinch Android's status as the lingua franca of smartphone application environments, especially with BlackBerry's current market leadership (http://www.wirelessandmobilenews.com/2011/02/nokia-iphone-blackberry-samsung-htc-top-smartphone-makers-says-htc.html) and Android's explosive marketshare growth (http://arstechnica.com/gadgets/news/2011/01/android-beats-nokia-apple-rim-in-2010-but-firm-warns-about-2011.ars).
