The BlackBerry Developer team has been working hard to get Android developers to port their apps to the BlackBerry PlayBook. Recently, Mint.com released its Android tablet app and we think this is a great time for the company to submit the app to App World. This makes a lot of sense considering many users have had trouble accessing the Mint.com site from a PlayBook, and BlackBerry’s “get it done” crowd loves a good finance app.

Gary Krakow to market: Don’t give up on RIM yet


An interesting video above from Gary Krakow and TheStreet.com, in the wake of RIM’s earning reductions and recent distaste for RIM’s latest device offerings.
