RIM is practically giving away PlayBooks

RIM - Kind or desperate?

RIM has announced that any Android app developer who turns their Android app into a app compatible with a Blackberry will receive a free 16GB BlackBerry playbook courtesy of RIM. The playbook would normally cost you £169, so it’s either kindness or desperation from RIM (Probably desperation).

The BlackBerry brand has been going downhill for a long time now, and hopefully this won’t encourage people to make crappy apps which just have ads on just so they can get a free PlayBook, which has been the case of quite a few people so far. So basically, this could just completely backfire on RIM.
