Playbook To Get Native Email App "This Summer," Further PIM Features, Android Support Coming Later

Another bit of news out of BlackBerry World: The Playbook will get a native email app this summer with further PIM features coming around the same time. In addition, the Playbook will run Android apps inside an Android “player,” something akin to an emulator that allows for fully native Android support without recompilation.

Available Android apps will be “curated” by RIM and appear in Blackberry’s App World. On launch you will not be able to run multiple Android apps at once. You will also be able run Adobe AIR apps.
