Leaked screenshots reveal Google Play Store on BlackBerry 10.2.1?
posted by Alan F. / Nov 10, 2013, 10:19 AM
For BlackBerry 10 users, having the Google Play Store on their device would mean no more sideloading of Android apps. And this could quickly address one of the major shortcomings of the BlackBerry 10 platform which is the lack of apps. Could this lead to improved sales for the beleaguered company, or will those who want to run Android apps just stick to buying an Android phone?
Alas, this is just a rumor for now, and as much as it makes sense, and as badly as BlackBerry 10 users might want this, we need to take this with the proverbial grain of salt until BlackBerry makes it official. In the meantime, for you dreamers, check out the slideshow below.

Not rescued completely yet, they still have to fix their hardware issue. If they are going to compete, they have to bring something unique to the table other than just their OS. Otherwise, they better have the best damn hardware on the planet otherwise why would you rather not just buy an Android phone.

I cannot stand BlackBerry. Though, to be honest, I have not used a BB 10 device. I really feel like this is a last gasp of air for BB if it is indeed true. I cannot see aindroid a lot of fans departing from their platform to go to BB 10 with Android apps. It's better for the developers than anybody else.
