Leaked screenshots reveal Google Play Store on BlackBerry 10.2.1?

Leaked screenshots reveal Google Play Store on BlackBerry 10.2.1?
With BlackBerry 10.2.1 currently being tested internally at BlackBerry, a few screenshots have leaked out allegedly showing the Google Play Store running on the BlackBerry 10 platform. A new Android Runtime is expected on the next build of BlackBerry 10 which would allow the Android flavored application store to be available to BlackBerry users so that they can download and install Android apps and other content.

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.
