BlackBerry PlayBook gets unofficial iOS emulator

BlackBerry PlayBook gets unofficial iOS emulator
Android games and apps on a BlackBerry PlayBook? We have seen that already. But iOS software running on RIM's tablet? Now that is something new. What we have being demonstrated in the video below is an emulator that does exactly that, as far as we can tell. We have the TomTom app and several iOS games running on a PlayBook, and they appear to run as smoothly as they should.

Feeling a bit skeptical about all this, people more into PlayBook hacking have been trying to find whether the hack is genuine. Interestingly, it seems like it is legit. Yet the software is not available to the public right now, and there is no word as to whether it will ever be. Nevertheless, it is cool to see how much fun the hacking community is having. Now feel free to check out the video below and tell us what you think in the comments!
