Early PlayBook Android Player Leaked Out By RIM

PlayBook Android Player Leaked PlayBook Android Player Leaked2

Some creative BlackBerry users noticed that RIM has hidden the BAR installation file for an early build of the BlackBerry PlayBook Android Player on their website. I won’t go into details of how it was ferreted out but we were told about it earlier this morning and N4BB posted a link to it and screenshots so now it is public information. You can download the early beta yourself and run it on your PlayBook. It does not currently have a back button but it does work. Just keep in mind this is a very early build and I have seen later builds that are much better. You will have to side load this installer so be sure to know how to do that before downloading

You can download the large BAR file for the Android Player directly from

  1. saaweeet!!

  2. what would i be able to do with it? still no apps…..

  3. anyone on the berryreview team load it up yet?

  4. Aww gee and I don’t have a PlayBook to try this on!


  5. Since this is a relatively old version of the Android App player, why would anyone want it? And where would we find apps for it anyway?

  6. installed it but dont know how to get android apps on it.

  7. It’s gone..

  8. I will wait for the official build coz there is ntn to do with the player just yet.

  9. come on bring it

  10. Interesting……… Sigh. No more for download

  11. Android support is nice, but what folks are really waiting for is 3G. 4G is also nice, but where’s 3G? When is it coming?

    Not everyone has a BlackBerry. I do, but my in-laws like the PlayBook but don’t have a smartphone. The buttons are too small for them to use. Automatically, they’ve got to put aside the PlayBook and look at iPad or Android. 3G would change that.
