Android apps on Blackberry: rumors are growing

We recently rapportions some rumors that the Canadian manufacturer Research In Motion could be based on the Android ecosystem to provide accounting applications on its own terminals. The trade magazine reports a video that seems to support this thesis.

RIM would work on the implementation of the Dalvik Java machine Google in order to bring it within its QNX system. The latter is especially embedded in the PlayBook tablet and should also invite on BlackBerry smartphones next generation equipped with a dual-core chip. The following video (in English) was filmed at the mobile international exhibition, held this month in Barcelona. This shows a representative of RIM’s Playbook performing a demonstration and clearly stating “we will support Android applications.”

Remains no official announcement has been made by RIM. Could it be then a misinformed representative or actually leaked information?
