    RIM Responds to Early Release of PlayBook's Android App Player



    Earlier today we posted about the leaked Android App Player that was found in a Desktop Manager update changelog. RIM has come out quickly in response to explain the leak, and why you shouldn't install it on your tablet:

    “An older version of the Android App Player beta software for the BlackBerry PlayBook was inadvertently posted and has since been removed. We recommend that users refrain from downloading and installing this software since it is outdated and non-functional in many respects. The official beta release of the Android App Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook is on track for release later this summer.”
    If you have been having issues with the App Player, this explains it. I'm guessing that the official Android Player is tracking around version 2 of the QNX OS with the update being a late summer release.
