It's now official! The upcoming BlackBerry Playbook will support Android Apps. Are you ready to grab your BlackBerry tablet on April?

Apple CEO Steve Jobs may, after all, be right in his statement during the launch of iPad 2:

“2011 will be the year of the copycats.”

Apple’s big boss was obviously referring to products coming off the assembly lines of rival companies like Samsung, RIM, LG, Motorola and HTC, which are also betting big stakes on PC tablets.

Oops! Something just slipped from a RIM's mouth. According a source, BlackBerry PlayBook will support Android apps. Is this for real?

Last month, there were reports that Research In Motion is working hard to add Android apps support for their BlackBerry PlayBook. And after that, strikingly similar news emerged as well.

It was also during the Mobile World Congress last month that a RIM rep was caught on video during a BlackBerry PlayBook hands-on saying, “We will also support Android apps when we release the Dalvik engine on top of QNX.” But no matter how old the video was, it’s surprising to know that it was uncovered only recently.
