Android apps on BlackBerry PlayBook detailed

Download Android apps through BlackBerry App World

T3 reporting live from BlackBerry World in Orlando, Florida.

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.
