If you own a Blackberry Playbook, why? Also, you won’t be able to run a large amount of Android apps when that functionality becomes available. RIM have detailed which apps won’t work on the Playbook, and it’s a fair few. You won’t be able to run/use/acquire apps which..
- Are built with the Android NDK — compiled in C (most graphic/performance intensive games)
- Use Google Maps
- Make use of the Android Market’s in-app billing system
- Use Google’s text-to-speech engine
- Are Live Wallpapers
- Use any form of VoIP
- Link an activity to the Android launcher
So there’s a fair chunk of the Android applications slashed from being able to be used on RIM’s first and only tablet. I hope you didn’t buy the Playbook just for its future Android app-player.
