Tablet RIM will support and applications for Android?
Some time in RIM are trying to figure out how to put support for Java on your tablet to ensure compatibility with existing applications for BlackBerry and allow corporate users to use with PlayBook own applications without having to make changes on them. The solution is to add virtual machine for Java, which will solve the problem. Although it is not yet known which virtual machine will decide to use by RIM, there are rumors that the company has opted for Dalvik. However, the same virtual machine that uses and Android, which will automatically make the devices of RIM, who work with platform QNX (this only PlayBook), compatible with applications for Android. Of course, now it is unclear what approach they would choose to RIM, if you stop to Dalvik, as they can and choose not to involve Google's own plans and stop the open its source code. Another option is to come to some agreement with Google, which in turn will provide formal support for Android applications for QNX. This can lead to the addition of Google Maps, Gmail, Android Market and others.
