The new CEO of RIM thinks the idea of Android on blackberry's is horrible because "They all look the same".
Which is a ridiculous argument. Most people run a PC with Microsoft Windows.. Where the start button is always in the same spot. These computers are made by Dell, Asus, Acer, HP, IBM/Lenovo, what have you. And they're "All the same". THATS THE POINT. That's why they have applications that run on them.
It's all well and good that RIM wants to be Apple (good luck), but if their argument against Android is that everything is "the same", then that's a pretty sad excuse.
Personally I'd like the ability to run Android on a playbook. Most people will stick with the stock QNX, but giving people CHOICE often helps them make the decision to make the purchase. I won't be making any purchases of Research in Motion products. They're locked down. They don't give me the freedom I expect from devices I purchase. I don't purchase Apple either. Theres only one type of person that blindly buys products from a company, Apple fanboys. There aren't any RIM fanboys as far as I can tell lining up for their next device. You can't manufacture that kind of blind obedience either.
