RIM has just revealed how Android apps will be downloadable from the BlackBerry App World for use on the company's 7-inch tablet, the PlayBook.
We've known for a while that the PlayBook would have some semblence of Android app compatability, but the ease with which they can be downloaded from BlackBerry's own app store will come as a huge boost to RIM fans.
Users will now get a "one store experience" with apps like IMDB and Gamefly looking great and appearing to fit very naturally on the PlayBook, during a demonstration at BlackBerry World in Orlando, Florida.
Apps will appear in the app tray, work right out of the box and and will not require a clunky emulator, just an Android Player.
Android developers will need to submit their applications to the App World in order to cross platforms. Exciting times.
