Android apps running on RIM’s Playbook?

The RIM press release says it all … that developers will be able to repackage and resign existing Android apps to run on PlayBook.

Yeah … That’s what the developer community needs … more undocumented RIM SDKs to add to the existing, poorly documented and cumbersome family of RIM development SDKs!

The cost of writing mobile apps for RIM devices is already about (I estimate) 30% higher than any other device just due to the challenges of dealing with the RIM SDKs and hardware.

Is adding another build step really going to help?
