One of the biggest gripes from BlackBerry users is the lack of apps, which is why RIM hopes to boost sales by adding Android compatibility in future devices -- DroidBerry, anyone? According to Bloomberg
, sources familiar with the matter say RIM may add support for Android apps on future QNX-based devices
, enabling access beyond RIM's relatively limited App World. The feature is said to go live in the QNX-powered PlayBook
tablet by the end of the year, but there's no word yet whether the 2012 line-up of QNX phones
will get a Google-friendly makeover. Rumor has it that anyone who bought the most recent batch of BlackBerrys won't get to have a taste of Gingerbread, Honeycomb or any other mouth-watering Android flavor for that matter. Guess they'll have to settle for plain old vanilla.
