Evidence Points At Android Apps on Blackberry Devices


We have previously posted that RIM, the Waterloo makers of Blackberry devices, were currently planning on allowing Android Application to work on their up coming Playbook tablet, however new evidence points to the idea that RIM may allow Android applications to run on a larger number of RIM devices.


The news, reported by BGR, points to analytics data from the ShopSavvy Android application. The stats show that 3 different Blackberry handhelds had accessed the ShopSavvy servers running the Android application. What’s more the location of the 3 devices were all from the Waterloo area of Canada!

  • BlackBerry 8300 ran ShopSavvy on January 31, 2011.
  • BlackBerry 8600 ran ShopSavvy on January 17 and 24, 2011.
  • BlackBerry 8520 ran ShopSavvy on February 7, 2011.

It seems that RIM are taking the idea of Android on their devices much more seriously than previously thought!
