In pictures: Free Android apps for BlackBerry PlayBook, 10 best downloads

RIM recently released a major software update for its BlackBerry PlayBook that enables it to run Android applications. Android-on-the-PlayBook pickings are somewhat slim right now, but there are some quality apps out there if you know where to look, starting with these 10 great free downloads.

Dropbox for BlackBerry PlayBook

Dropbox, perhaps the most popular and widely used cloud storage service, is now available for the BlackBerry PlayBook…or at least the Android version can be sideloaded. Upload various file types, including documents, images and video, to your Dropbox, and download files already stored in the cloud via BlackBerry tablet. The Android app runs very smoothly on the PlayBook, and I haven't come across any compatibility issues at all.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

STYLISTIC Q572

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
