    Here's a video of iOS apps running on the BlackBerry playbook tablet:

    It was reported that some iOS apps run on the playbook Via an emulator the same way Android apps works on the blackberry playbook tablet. If this is true, I'm seeing a lot of people considering to purchase a playbook tablet since it's the only tablet that plays all Android, iOS and BlackBerry apps, :eek:

    The Apps run pretty smoothly as well even when being emulated.

    Apple wouldn't allow this to happen. Joykillers. :(

    Of course. This is just a workaround a developer found, rofl

    that looks awesome. BB Playbook seems like a perfect device for Developers.

    Nah! The perfect one is where the $,$$$ is at.
    People are switching to iOS, Android and WP7 so developers puts 'em as a first preference.

    I think that for Android support, they probably just forked Dalvik and Bionic and made them compatible. Lulz.

    Yeah, iOS is going to be in trouble, now! If only BB had marketing dollars...then Apple would probably have to become niche.

    Yes it is real, a lot of apps like Tapatalk use this bridge or whatever you want to call it.

    There is still not a load of applications as I feel many people still do not know about it however it is a nice little thing and hopefully people learn about it and use it more.

    I'm just anti-Apple so any damage to iOS is a victory for me.
