A long time ago, in a podcast far, far away, CrackBerry's own Kevin Michaluk talked about the BlackBerry PlayBook (then only rumor) and how with its new QNX-based operating system, it could theoretically run Android applications via
the Dalvik Virtual Machine


. We say theoretically because it's not like PlayBook users will be running to the Android Market or anything out of the box -- it'd take RIM's blessing or some hackery to get the job done.

But it's looking more like that could be the case, with BGR reporting that "RIM is very much considering the Dalvik Virtual Machine." Long story short -- if they do so, we could well see Android apps hacked onto it in short order.

There still are a lot of ifs involved. But we've been fairly impressed with the PlayBook (never mind its lack of notifications and messaging clients), and running any Android app on it would be quite the feat. [
