I bought 3 playbooks for my kids for xmas and have now discovered that they can't get any of the apps they want. i was wrongly told that I could download any andriod apps on 2 the playbooks but seemingly not!
They only want one game - derby days. Does anybody know how on earth I can get it on their playbooks? If not that'll be 3 playbooks unwanted!
are blackberry ever planning on getting the android apps?

PlayBook supports andriod apps. But BlackBerry Runtime for Android apps allows Android applications that developers have repackaged, signed, and submitted to the BlackBerry App World storefront, to run on the BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2.0. Therefore, it means you won't be able to run all andriod apps on PlayBook. The driod apps need to be reprogrammed or ported so that they can be run on PlayBook. This is great feature that no other tablet platform allows at the moment. QNX (PlayBook) and Andriod runs on completely different application platform and they need to be repackaged for ensuring compatibility.

Here is a good place to get Android apps. I have quite a few of them installed. It takes a little bit of setup on your computer to install them but once you've done it a time or two it's easy. I don't see Derby Days on their list but let me see what I can find.
