Blackberry Playbook starts unholy alliance of OS manufacturers

Authored by: Alex T. — May 7, 2011

It's been common practice for some Verizon Android phones to come with Bing search and maps instead of Google's solutions (and people were pissed about it), but the Playbook takes it to a new level. You may have already heard that RIMs new tablet, powered by their QNX OS, can run Android apps through a virtual machine setup, but now they're set to also include Bing apps for search and maps into the mix. Who would have imagined that there'd ever be a product made by RIM, running apps made for Google's Android and using Microsoft's Bing engine for search, maps and the like. As the old saying goes: if you can't beat them, throw money at them so they can grow their user base and beat you later.
