BlackBerry PlayBook since it got launched, media were criticizing it by many ways also by carrying lack of apps. Retail stores started giving out for good sale or with exciting offers for it to sell. Most of the people who already owned a BlackBerry Tablet know its potential and are patiently waiting for RIM to start showing what really BlackBerry PlayBook could do. Recently, RIM released Native Development Kit (NDK) and much more on Devcon 2011 (highlights here) for BlackBerry PlayBook where developers started launching more apps towards BlackBerry Tablet.
BlackBerry Abusers and developers gone really busy since BlackBerry Tablet OS 2.0 was pushed to developers with Android apps capability at Devcon Americas 2011. Developers are doing their thing by porting apps to BlackBerry PlayBook by simple clicks and on the other hand, BlackBerry Abusers are busy taking down the Android apps (APK files) converting by themselves to run on BlackBerry PlayBook (BAR files). My PlayBook is now loaded with 28 Android apps working well but with camera, microphone, GPS, etc. limitations. Keep in mind, this BlackBerry Tablet OS 188.8.131.5278 is only for developers, many features might be unavailable. So, no complaints.
With 28 Android apps, Abusers at CrackBerry.com forums also had converted full Android OS Gingerbread, Honeycomb and Ice-cream Sandwich 2.4 to work on BlackBerry PlayBook! Watch the video below running Android Honeycomb.
Its Best of both worlds on BlackBerry PlayBook! Hope to see next stable Tablet OS with no limitations on multimedia while running Android apps/OS.
