Porting Android apps to the BlackBerry PlayBook to be a piece of cake

Well, it is definitely a good step forward. I love my Bbry, and so I hate to see it bashed so often for lack of apps.

High five to whoever thought of that at blackberry. Take everything thats still good about a blackberry and give it a huge jump by allowing the worlds fastest growing app store to be compatable with it as well as its own apps.

Just a bit confuddled here... shouldn't it be the RIM PlayBook, not Blackberry PlayBook? Isn't Blackberry a seperate OS than QNX?

I could be wrong, but if I'm not I expect a little more out of journalists and editors.
