BlackBerry users have been bugging us for two years to release ShopSavvy on BlackBerry, but to date they have been disappointed. Well according to ShopSavvy’s flurry logs someone in Waterloo, Ontario (Canada for the geographically challenged oh and BTW it wheres RIM is based) has been running ShopSavvy for Android on various BlackBerry devices. Here are the details:
• BlackBerry 8300 ran ShopSavvy on January 31, 2011
• BlackBerry 8600 ran ShopSavvy on January 17 and 24, 2011
• BlackBerry 8520 ran ShopSavvy on February 7, 2011
Earlier this month Rachel King wrote a ZDNet story suggesting that BlackBerry’s new PlayBook tablet is going to support Android apps. This makes sense since BlackBerry OS can support Java Virtual Machines and it would be pretty easy to compile Android in one of the them.
This is a pretty interesting development. If you have any details please let us know – we would love to optimize ShopSavvy for the new BlackBerry+Android.
UPDATE: Several blogs suggested they didn’t believe this since we didn’t include the Flurry logs so here they are:
