Research In Motion today announced as part of its quarterly earnings report that it will add support for Android and Java applications in its forthcoming QNX-based PlayBook. It will work through two "app players" that provide an application run-time environment for Java apps and Android v2.3 apps. RIM has the APIs and other tools developers need to port their Android/Java apps to run on the PlayBook. Developers will only need to use the tools to recompile their apps, submit them to BlackBerry App World, and, once approved, their apps will be available for download through BlackBerry App World. This move will give PlayBook users access to a much wider range of applications than just those that will be initially available for the PlayBook's QNX platform.
