Bloomberg are reporting that the latest BlackBerry smartphones will be designed to run Android Apps. Sources close to Bloomberg have explained that RIM are building their latest smartphones with QNX software and QNX software will be able to run Android apps.
If this is true then this will be seen as a very shrewd move by RIM and will certainly increase the appeal of the BlackBerry line-up. The current selection of BlackBerry apps from the App World is around 40,000 if they do join forces with Android, then users will be looking at a grand selection of around 250,000 apps to choose from.
We’ll keep following this story and update it as soon as we hear back officially from RIM.
