Bloomberg released a rumor on Wednesday that RIM, the maker of the BlackBerry smartphone line, was looking to make its future devices compatible with Android applications.
According to the agency, the first smartphones with the new QNX system, which are expected to reach the world market in early 2012, will have the ability to run Android applications using the same technology embedded in the PlayBook, the company's tablet.
Currently, Google's Android Market has 250,000 applications. This number is six times higher than App World, RIM's virtual store.
