I'm betting the new phones BB are making using the same OS will also be running Android apps. Very smart move.

iPhone to run Android apps next?

If this ever happens, it is a LONG way off.

But - I was surprised to see BB doing this. I thought the playbook was failed from the start but now they seem to be making progress.

Cool. The phones blackberry makes now will be all touch, I'm assuming, Right? Would the android apps run on a blackberry with a trackball and keyboard?

It will be a 'Apple vs everyone else' thing but I guess Apple is use to that.
