Those Blackberry users themselves can say that they don’t have few apps to choose from. Thus, Blackberry’s RIM is jumping into the bandwagon by making their phones compatible to android apps. By this, RIM thinks they will boost their sales.
Bloomberg reports that it was started by RIM’s internal department but through the software (Alien Dalvik) by Myriad Android apps can now be run on other OS platform which in this case RIM’s QNX. A typical example would be Blackberry’s Playbook tablet but there’s no confirmation yet that for those QNX powered phones will have the same feature.
Probably the said software will be kept up to date for those apps that are intended for higher Android flavor (Ice Cream Sandwich).
