Update to BlackBerry 10.2 to bring support for Android 4.2.2

0. phoneArena posted on 14 Jun 2013, 02:33

You might recall that back in 2011, BlackBerry offered a way for owners of its BlackBerry PlayBook to run Android Apps on the slate, based on Android 2.3.3; for some of you, that Android build sounds like something that Thomas Edison used when he said, "Watson, come here. I need help with my router." So fast forward we go to 2013...

They can live without android. But they can't live without apps.

Very nice, I wonder how well the BB phones will run the apps and games though e.g. Grand Theft Auto.

I think BB phones will run smoothly. BB 10 devices have pretty hardware.

This could be a game changer for BB as long as the ported apps run smoothly.

only if you know how great this OS (QNX) even with current version 10.1 + little tricky instagram can work flawless, temple run and many more games + apps. Just imagine next month BB10 can grab almost android apps base 4.2.2 and contrary to mostly of android user still stuck on GB or ICS or JB 4.1 lol
