    The Blackberry Playbook and QNX-based smartphones maybe able to run Android apps. They may even be certified by Google to have the Android market.

    BlackBerry PlayBook and future QNX-based BlackBerry Smartphones to run Android Apps too?!

    I have no problem with that. I don't like closed ecosystems, ideally any app would eb able to run on any platform. It would be great if you didn't have to choose a phone based on it's app store, but rather the features of the phone. Plus, developers win too.

    Huh? Did you mean to say also? Anyways, it's not JUST for porting iOS games. Developers can make their own non-iphone C++ games with the PDK too.


    On topic: I found out why BB stole from webOS and now is trying to mooch off of Android. The head person of the Playbook project is Carlos Mencia.

    The problem with that is, developers lose focus. What platform are you really developing for? Each platform has its own unique features; its own flow; its own design; its own guidelines.

    Can you imagine what an iOS app would look like on webOS? It would look completely out of place, confusing and to put it bluntly, just wrong.

    It's a bad idea, all around.

    Games, on the other hand, is a free-for-all. It can easily jump from platform-to-platform. The problem with most applications, it's designed with a platform-specific-UI in mind; not to mention, that each platform has their own interface framework, which is the main hurdle/impossibility (iOS' Cocoa for example).

    I completely agree. That is why an app is preferred over a mobile friendly site.
