BlackBerry PlayBook Tablet & Upcoming QNX-Based Smartphones to Run Android Apps?

January 27th, 2011

QNX-Devices We have heard a great news from BGR that RIM has been seriously considering a new feature that will allow BlackBerry devices to run Android Apps. It’s said that Research In Motion will choose the Dalvik virtual machine as their Java environment for QNX. And Dalvik is just the same Virtual Machine that the Android OS uses. In this case, it would allow RIM’s QNX-based devices to run any App built for the Android devices.

If RIM does make such a great move, and those QNX-based devices can run Android Apps, it would be awesome! What do you think about the BlackBerry smartphones running Android Apps?

Vlingo for BlackBerry is a Voice App that can turn our words into action. Vlingo Virtual Assistant combines fast, accurate voice recognition technology with our Intent Engine so that we can quickly and easily get things done when we’re on the go. It is really an advanced and cool App for BlackBerry users. And now, it has been updated with full support for Spanish, French, German and Italian languages.

With Vlingo, we can do the following actions by voice:

  • Send a text or email message to other Vlingo for BlackBerry users
  • Search the web using Google or Yahoo!
  • Call a contact
  • Update our Facebook or Twitter status
  • Dictate text into any text box with Vlingo Everywhere including: BBM, AIM, Yahoo, Windows Live
  • Launch virtually any application: “open calendar”
  • Receive the incoming email and text messages aloud via SafeReader
  • Have the calendar reminders aloud via SafeReader
