consensus is no. the BB7 hardware will not support the BB10 software.
at least that's what we've been told which makes sense seeing as BB10 needs at least dual core processing power.It's Never Too Late to Be Bold You can find my musing over at BerryFlow.com | @jmznvs

If it's an HTML5 (WebWorks) app, you would not have to "start it again". If it's anything else, you would have to rewrite it from scratch.

Webworks: No extra development really needed.
Native App: Won't work. BB7 apps are written in Java. BB10 apps are C++. Two different languages, compilers, and API sets.
The Java apps I've written for BB5/6/7 have to be completely rewritten for BB10. Apps written for the Playbook, though, should work on BB10. Some native Playbook apps might need to adjust resolution/layout, but not a complete rewrite.
BB10 should also run Android and Air apps, just like the Playbook, since they are both QNX based. But just like right now with Playbook, there isn't cross-compatibility between QNX and BB7 (Playbook apps won't run on BB7 - BB7 apps won't run on the Playbook).RuneCryption - Unique memory game for PlayBook & BB10.
