RIM Issues Official Statement on Leaked Android App Player

Yesterday we saw a really early version of the Android App player for the BlackBerry PlayBook which quickly spread throughout the net. The application is a really early built but surprisingly some people have manage to get some android apps working on it.

This prompted RIM to issue the following statement:

“An older version of the Android App Player beta software for the BlackBerry PlayBook was inadvertently posted and has since been removed. We recommend that users refrain from downloading and installing this software since it is outdated and non-functional in many respects. The official beta release of the Android App Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook is on track for release later this summer.”

We do agree that if you do not have an idea of what you are doing to wait until the official release. If you do, it is at your own risk of crashing your device.

That aside this app proves how powerful the QNX OS is.

  1. Bingo….. thats why I think RIM did this on purpose. Even though we all knew it existed… and had seen brief demos…. actually having it work on our devices (albeit poorly) seems to have left the collective tech world in awe…….

    I also like how the Playbook will run a version of Android that most Android users don’t even have yet.

  2. Summer officially ends at the end of August :) Hmmm, this also coincides with the release of the new OS 7 BlackBerrys.

    BB Addict, what version of Android were we seeing on the PlayBook?

  3. too bad i wasn’t smart enough to this one out haha
