RIM Reverses Course on PlayBook Sideloading

RIM recently announced that it would end Android app sideloading for its PlayBook tablet, but now the company appears to have changed its mind. In a new blog post, RIM’s Alec Saunders clarified, “Sideloading on our platform is changing in nature.” He added, “Sideloading is a developer feature. It exists so that developers can load their apps onto their own devices to test. It’s there so developers can send a beta release to their testing community for review. It is definitely not there for some people to sideload a pirated app.”

While the company’s approach to sideloading is not entirely clear, they have announced that they are adding new encryption tools to help fight app piracy.
