There is no procedure. Android apps require OS 10.2.1 to run. No 10.2.1, no Android apps.

Thats true.. So no point in buying playbook now avaiable at 90$ rt.

Since playbook has a solid hardware and good camera..thought of giving a try. But without having os 10 and android, i dont feel its a good choice going for playbook even at 90$.

What the PlayBook does (surfing the internet, playing games, email, etc.), it does well. If running Android apps is not a top priority, the PlayBook could still fill the bill on many levels.

The Playbook can run a fair number of Android apps that are converted to bar files.

Good eReader has done a lot of this for you and there is a pretty good number of apps already converted.
