Firefox won't install on a Blackberry Playbook tablet, howcome?

Posted

Just bought a Blackberry Playbook tablet and Firefox won't install as a browser. You have every other mfg listed, except Blackberry, which has just had a major product push here in Canada. I' sure I'm not the only one that use Firefox as a preferred browser on our PC's. Is anyone working on this issue

  Due to the Java-based development system and inability to build C/C++ apps, the full Firefox browser will not be available on the Blackberry OS. However, a future version of Firefox Home may be available for Blackberry.
