With BlackBerry DevCon Americas kicking off tomorrow in San Franciso, we know RIM will be showing off some goodies with the Android App Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook and while it remains uncertain when, exactly it will roll out to users -- RIM is wanting to be prepared. As such, all throughout BlackBerry DevCon they will be holding App Express sessions where Android developers and web developers can have their apps ported to the BlackBerry PlayBook in minutes:
Fast track your app by visiting the App Express area at BlackBerry® DevCon Americas. In just a few minutes, you can port your existing Android app to the BlackBerry® PlayBook™ tablet or transform an existing web application into a full-fledged app for both the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet and BlackBerry® smartphones.
Once done, you can get your app submitted to BlackBerry App World™ on the spot*. Come to the kiosk, plug in your laptop, and see how easy it is to get a BlackBerry app up and running. Experts from Research In Motion's (RIM®) development team and the BlackBerry App World team will be there, ready to help.
App Express opens on Monday, October 17 and runs through Thursday, October 20. You don't even have to be registered for BlackBerry DevCon Americas. Come by and try out App Express on us, and then stick around for the rest of the content, insights, networking and more at the conference.
There you have it -- easy as that. There are a few things you'll need to bring along with you if you intend on porting your app to the BlackBerry PlayBook but those items are outlined on the DevCon Americas website. Be sure to check it out if you're looking to get into BlackBerry App World and explore new oppurtunites for your work.
