Final official version coming this Summer.
BlackBerry Playbook hasn’t exactly set the retail on fire. The average sales performance despite shipping 500,000 units has been a major letdown for RIM, who are now once again looking at bringing the much touted Android Apps support feature they had promised before launch.
According to Ars Technica, an unverified version of Android App Player designed for Playbook was leaked on the internet this weekend. However, RIM were quick to point out that it was an old build, promising the final, official build for this Summer. Once the feature is available, Playbook users will be able to download any of 250,000 apps available from the Android Market.
Android apps will definitely add a layer of appeal to the tablet, though will it be enough to sway users away from the iPad or the Android-based ones?
