BlackBerry 10.2 brings support for Facebook Home
A BlackBerry Q10 owner was messing around with a leaked build of BlackBerry 10.2, OS 10.2.0.663 to be exact, which allows some apps for Android 4.2.2 to run on a BlackBerry 10 device. One of those apps is Facebook Home. The less than well-received app didn't go over too well with Android users, but might find some BlackBerry 10.2 users more willing to give the launcher a chance.

Facebook Home worked smoothly on the BlackBerry Q10 with the 10.2 update installed, and even launched sideloaded Android apps on the phone. Perhaps the launcher will find a fan base amongst BlackBerry users after being unable to catch on with Android sporting smartphone owners who were upset at having to give up their widgets to use it. And it wasn't just the Facebook Home app that did poorly. The HTC First, the first (and possibly last) Android flavored model to come with Facebook Home pre-installed, needed a huge price cut to 99 cents on contract in order to finally sell some units.
