BlackBerry CEO admits he was challenged by BB10's learning curve
0. phoneArena 27 Feb 2014, 07:03 posted on
CEO John Chen opened up about his own user impressions from BB 10. It turns out Mr. Chen got to experience the platform's fairly steep learning curve for himself. "It took me a while to get used to BlackBerry 10," he admitted, "but once I got used to it, I loved it." Although this is a common sentiment among BlackBerry users, it might have contributed to the Canadian company's downward slide...

Yep. I believe he is on the right track. Seems very upfront and honest as one would be in his position.

With the latest update, 10.2.1. you don't need to sideload anymore. You can download APK's straight to the device. Just not from the Google Store because it's not official Android.

How is the performance while running .apk apps?

The performance is great, IMO. Handsets still function normally, and multitasking is still good. The only difference that I've seen is that APK's loaded from one of the Android stores(say, 1Mobile Market, Amazon App Store, etc)tend to take just a tad bit longer to open up when you initially go to use them. After that, they run pretty smooth.

There is an app for BB10 called snap that you can use(it must be side loaded first)to gain access to the Google Play Store. From there, you can download and run official Google Play Store apps.

Bb10 is fantastic OS in midrange device. 10.2.0 is good, 10.2.1 is excellent, but 10.3.1 + highend speck will be superphone, security, multitasking and flexibility.
