Rumor: Android App Player "Still Looking to be On Schedule"


Earlier this week we heard a rumor from Engadget that the Android App Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook might not show its face until "Late Fall" instead of "Late Summer." While we told you to take it with a grain of salt my buddy Kevin @CrackBerry is saying the same thing with confirmation from his sources that things are still on track. We mentioned when the first rumor dropped that this rumor may be talking about the official out of beta release instead of the developer and then public beta release. Kevin is hearing that developers should be getting access to the Android Player in the next two or three weeks setting the stage for an August or early September beta launch.

Either way I know quite a few devs that cannot wait to get their hands on the official player. What do you think?

  1. I am enjoying the “Alpha” version and can’t wait for the official release.

  2. I guess only time will tell who’s right. I do hate the fact that when it does get released it will be in beta form at first….hopefully this will be one of those betas that is beta in name only.

  3. I hope this rumor is true that it is still on track and will be available late summer we all experience too much delay from RIM as it is.

  4. With the functionality (albeit crippled and buggy) of the leaked android app player, I really hope they release it on schedule. It’s frustrating having seen a demo of this long ago and not even having an official beta yet.
