  1. It’s good news that the keyboard is coming back. I just hope they can modify the Android system so that it works like the BB10 system. It’s only software after all, how hard can it be to add or change features on it to make it better? If they do, then it would probably be the best operating system ever. Just my opinion.

    • It’s hard. Android is difficult to work with because its old and outdated. Making Android feel and run like BB10? Not sure that is even possible. Can it get close to the feel of BB10? Perhaps, but still be quite limited.

      I am very happy that BlackBerry has spoken to several interested parties that want to license BB10 for upcoming devices. That in itself is good news. I am hoping that other Manufacturers can properly push and promote BB10, because BBRY has done a Crap Job at it. lol

  2. The problem with keeping BB10 as is, is that apps are not being made for it now. For example, WhatsApp and Facebook no longer support BB10 and their Android versions don’t work perfectly on a BB10 system. And several other apps just can’t be used at all, because Google play services are required.

  3. BB10 came in while the market place was saturated with Android. It was suppose to be released 1.5 years earlier. Anyhow, they can get the proper support if the manufacturers are willing to help.

    BB10 Support. Development needs to be supported. Manufacturers should fund for development. And promote\market the platform.

    This is the only way this industry moves forward. IMO. we’ve been stuck on Android and iOS far too long.

    In the meantime, WhatsApp, Facebook and many more Android apps work flawlessly on the BB10 Passport and Z30.
