Default Re: Playbook WILL support Android Apps!

QNX Neutrino RTOS is a modular OS. It shouldn't have an issue running the Dalvik VM (*gasp* Android is already a Virtual Machine) or similar Java VM on top of the Neutrino kernel. Remember that Android is Dalvik VM running on a Linux based kernel. It runs on devices at much slower speeds than the 1Ghz Dual Core OMAP 4430 that powers the PlayBook.

Architecturally, the PlayBook should rock any version of the Android OS that has been made Open Source.
