BlackBerry Phones To Support Android Apps

According to a report, the latest generation of phones manufactured by Canadian smartphone company Research in Motion (RIM)  will support Android applications. According to Bloomberg, the upcoming series of BlackBerry phones to be launched in 2012 will be powered by a brand new operating system called QNX which will be able to support Android applications in the same way as the PlayBook tablet of the company allows Android apps.

The new generation of BlackBerry devices will thus have an added advantage of supporting around 200,000 Android applications as well as the applications supported by its own World App store.  The QNX platform focusses on allowing BlackBerry devices reap rewards of the exponential growth in the Android Market and at the same time strengthening RIM’s own user base and application store.

Despite recently introducing several BlackBerry smartphones, Research In Motion has reported a sales drop in the last quarter, which is first such event in the last 9 years, hence this decision can be a real growth catalyst  only if the Android application support is flawless and both BlackBerry and Android apps run seamlessly on the latest devices.
