Could we see applications written for Android that allow for movie playback on mobile devices? AndroidGuys thinks so. If this happens on the Android platform, it could work not only for mobile devices, but also for the set-top box we talked about last week. Reuters is reporting that Blockbuster’s Chief Executive James Keyes started watching movies on his BlackBerry after some help from a technical expert at Blockbuster and from the co-chief executive of Research in Motion Ltd. and that was pretty much all it took to convince him that mobile was the way of the future.
We’re talking with virtually all of the major manufacturers about the opportunity to provide greater mobility and convenience,” Keyes said, when asked if the company is talking to phone makers such as Nokia Oyj, Samsung Electronics Co and Motorola Inc.
It should be noted that Samsung and Motorola belong to the OHA.
