Shopsavvy Discovers Blackberry’s Testing Android Apps

It’s been widely rumored that the new half connected tablet the Blackberry Playbook by RIM will have some kind of partnership with Google and the Android market to run Android applications.  Now Alex and Rylan over at Shopsavvy have confirmed that the Android version of Shopsavvy has been running on Blackberry handsets.

The geo location of the Blackberrys running ShopSavvy for Android were in Waterloo, Ontario Canada which just happens to be the same town where RIM/Blackberry is based.

Shopsavvy discovered these Blackberry uses checking through their flurry logs.  To date, Big In Japan hasn’t released a Blackberry version of Shopsavvy. Here is what their Flurry logs reported:

Blackberry 8300 ran ShopSavvy on January 31, 2011

More after the break

Blackberry 8600 ran ShopSavvy on January 17 and 24, 2011

Blackberry 8520 ran ShopSavvy on February 7, 2011

Android was disappointed that we didn’t get Nokia, could we be getting Blackberry?

  1. Lol! Definitely possible but 1) Shopsavvy isnt a little dev by anymeans and 2) it was geotagged to the same town where RIM is based.

  2. This gives me an idea. I think I might modify my phone to identify as a popular windows phone device and install some of these apps and see if any blog picks it up.

  3. One of the main reasons people abandon Blackberry is the lousy BB appmarket. So if you can run the Android market on a measly BB Curve 8520, doesn’t that hurt Android as much as help Blackberry?

  4. Blackberry and Android teaming up? That would be like Batman and IronMan teaming up. Impossible, but would be beyond awesome if it happened.

    The only thing RIM and Blackberry really lack is a good OS for their phones.
