I have just got a PlayBook 2.0.1. Please can someone tell me in plain English if you can use android applications or have I bought the equivalent of a betamax recorder? 

Please use plain text.

There are many android apps in the App World, though you would not know which ones are.

 

You can also "sideload " Android apps that have been converted to .bar files.  If you want details go to goodereader.com or come back and ask.

 

Betamax was a superior technology displaced by better marketing of an inferior one.  So in that respect there is a risk that poor marketing may fail BB but not poor product.

Thanks. I now have more of an idea of what is available and how to go about things.
