Open source BlackBerry PlayBook Application

Hey guys just wanted to let you know that I have just pushed a 2.0.0 release to my "Convertinator" app.


With the 2.0.0 release, I have open sourced the project under the LGPL license.


If anyone is interested in contributing to the project, or just wants some source code to compare notes, feel free to check it out. The project is hosted on Github at this address: https://github.com/v17al/Convertinator

I am just wondering. How difficult would it be to run Open Office on the PlayBook and have the ability to synch contact files with Monzilla ThunderBird? The first would fix the rather poor office app shipped with the device. The second would please a bunch if us who refuse to pay Microsoft for it's office suit and/or outlook.
