The software will integrated into the new QNX operating system, giving PlayBook owners a chance to download and use the 150,000 apps in the Android Market on their tablet.
Sources say the software will not be ready at the PlayBook's launch (allegedly end of March) but will be ready in the Q3.
Price has not been confirmed but has been "leaked" as $500 for a base model, in line with the Apple iPad and $300 cheaper than the newly launched Motorola Xoom.
RIM's PlayBook will have a 7-inch LCD screen with 1024x600 resolution, a dual-core 1GHz processor, a 5MP standard camera and a 3MP front-facing camera.
