Research In Motion Ltd., looking to score a hit with its PlayBook
tablet computer, is working on software to allow the device to run
applications for Google Inc.’s Android, three people familiar
with the matter said.
RIM plans to integrate the technology with the PlayBook operating
system, giving customers access to Android’s more than 130,000
apps, said the people, who asked not to be identified because the
effort isn’t public. RIM, after looking outside the company, is
developing the software internally and may have it ready in the
second half, two people said.
AIR apps, Flash apps, Android apps — that’ll all look and work just great.
