BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 to run Android 4.1 apps

In an effort to further expand the Blackberry World’s app offering, Blackberry is planning to upgrade the runtime of their new platform for it to be able support Android Jelly bean apps in the future.

One of the things that the Blackberry platform has always been criticized for is its scarcity of popular apps. The main reason why it is such is because the Blackberry OS’s runtime is still stuck at Android 2.3 (Gingerbread). In effect, app developers cannot port their app to since their apps are already designed for latter iterations of the Android OS.

But that’s about to change as Blackberry is planning to bring their platform’s runtime up to speed with Android‘s runtime. They have their work cut out for them, but if they succeed in this venture, it’ll open a lot of doors for the new platform and eventually bring in more quality apps to the Blackberry World.

As of the time of writing, the project is still on the planning phase and the Canadian company is still mum on when they plan to roll-out the update.

      that’s an ugly phone? are you serious? I wonder what phone you’re using now because I own an iP5 and comparing it to the Z10 is a no-brainer.
