    Can an Android port be integrated into the HUB? I am wondering how to do that?

    I'm quoting from what has been posted and that I've read from the past:

    ===

    You are correct that the Skype app coming to BlackBerry 10 is our very popular Skype for Android app. We are excited that BlackBerry is enabling Android apps like Skype for Android run great on BB10, and are fully supporting the Android runtime environment and Android tools for BlackBerry 10. This allows us to leverage our existing Skype for Android development efforts to quickly have the latest version of our app (Skype for Android 3.1) ready for BlackBerry 10.

    We are closely collaborating with BlackBerry to ensure the app runs well and that BlackBerry 10 users will have a great Skype experience. To that end, we are working closely with BlackBerry to open up some of the integration points available to native apps in the OS so that they can also be used by the Skype application and we expect the app will allow Skype users to see notifications, to start the app from the Hub, and to see their Skype contacts in the native phone book."

    Not easy to wait. Skype and Viber will make my Z10 a super phone.

    Does this mean the new runtime is coming before US launch? Would be amazing. Most apps would probably work with that and likely very well.

    Why does everyone ask if the runtime will be updated? they said sometime this year, it will be updated.... If it was updated, there would need to be a serious OS upgrade in the next 5 days or so, and that is not going to happen as a lot of carriers haven't even released the first OS upgrade yet....

    Reading around on the forums it does seem like the new android environment is under testing. If this is the reality, the perhaps hoping for Skype and new OS upgrade would be like getting two presents from Santa

    They're reverse engineering the Android emulator from my understanding, so Skype can be a "Fantastic Experience" on the Z10. I suspect we may see another software update before it comes along.

    Wow, I hope BB10's JB runtime will run Android apps better than Google's Android.

    Any news about Skype? Seems like it went silent after the US launch.
