    BlackBerry Already Running Android Apps?

    ShopSavvy, creator of the fantastic barcode reader/shopping assistant app, noticed something, well, peculiar in their logs. It shows that people in Waterloo, Ontario (where RIM is based) using the Android ShopSavvy app on Blackberry phones. The devices tracked are:
    BlackBerry 8300 ran ShopSavvy on January 31, 2011
    BlackBerry 8600 ran ShopSavvy on January 17 and 24, 2011
    :rofl3: BlackBerry 8520 ran ShopSavvy on February 7, 2011

    This Android app trail that leads back to RIM actually corroboratesa previous report of the BlackBerry PlayBook being able to run Android apps. Or maybe it's nothing, those devices are just variations of the Curve, not a PlayBook. Nevertheless, if true, it's very interesting to see RIM usingAndroid appsto their advantage is a pretty smart move but it's unclear how Google will react (they do have strict Android Market rules).

    It may be off topic a little but I think it's still an interesting subject to talk about I mean yes this is very strange but I wonder if other android apps will work on the RIM os. Yes Google may get mad but seriously what do you want them to do blackberry users don't have access to the android market they need to get them from apk files and Google don't really have much power over those the devs do.
