It wasn't long ago that emails to developers let us know that Handster Inc. would be submitting Android apps to BlackBerry App World on developers behalf to help build up the Android app selection for when the Android Player for the BlackBerry PlayBook is made available in February.

In fact, these apps have been on RIM's internal builds of BlackBerry App World for quite some time for testing and it's no small amount either -- over 7,000 apps have been tested and now, RIM has let quite a few of them go live for everyone provided you're on PlayBook OS 2.0.

Android apps aren't exactly new to App World, RIM has allowed a few in the past but this is the first time we're starting to see the Handster apps turn up. A lot of folks in the forums have grabbed a couple and tested them out, have you?
