Android Applications For Blackberry PlayBook Delayed Until Late Fall

When Research In Motion launched their QNX-powered Blackberry PlayBook tablet, they promised the device would support Android applications through a virtual player this summer. Even though we’ve seen some leaked builds for the Android player surface, nothing official has come from RIM yet.

According to sources at Engadget, RIM has delayed the support for the Android app virtual player until “late fall”. RIM offered no official reason for the delay. We can only hope they push through the unexplained delay as many PlayBook users are suffering from Android app envy.
