“In a couple of previous pieces, most recently RIM’s BlackBerry
PlayBook: A Better Android than Android? I theorized on how RIM
might actually make that Android compatibility work. This was
purely conjecture on my part, based upon my understanding of
technologies currently available on the market and how QNX
functions.

“Today, after a brief call with Research in Motion, I actually
did learn how the yet-to-be-demonstrated PlayBook Android
compatibility actually works. I have to say, they went the route I
thought they were least likely to do, which is to run re-compiled,
re-packaged Android applications on a Dalvik-compatible JVM running
natively on the QNX OS.”
