Re: Android on Playbook

That's a memory and disk space killer.  Do hope that changes.

Re: Android on Playbook

I agreed with GoldenJoe to against supporting Android apps on the PlayBook.

 

If PlayBook supports android apps well, I as a developer might as well developer Android apps will do, what for I spent my time on PlayBook SDK? PlayBook app FOR PlayBook device only, whereas Android app FOR Android + PlayBook devices. Sooner or later, buying a PlayBook had no difference compared to getting an Android device, same apps available.

Re: Android on Playbook

i know, android like itunes appstore is vast but it will be nice to waste away the day exploring the android market on the playbook, PBs interface is a pleasure to use but as is there is SO LITTLE TO EXPLORE other than the net, its a few swipes and youre done.
