    This is interesting, interesting way to look at BB10 that it will be best Anroid phone as well on top of bb10 phone. The anroid apps can run better on BB10 then some of Anroid devices out there. QNX can run anroid, ios and windows apps if RIM wants to..
    Here is tweet from one of dev @ portanroid forums

    What people don't realize is that BB10 will be the best android-capable phone on the market. #bb10believe #BB10Portathon

    I think comments like this are just unneeded hyperbole when you consider just how much easier it is for an android phone to run almost any android apps and not simply those ones that have been converted specially.

    Yeah, I think it's a stretch to say something like that. Then again, I haven't tried BB10, so I COULD be wrong. Could it be that any app from Google Play will work on BB10 once converted? I don't know..

    lol just because it can run them doesn't mean its the best Android :P its like saying an NES emulator that can run NES games on your PC or Android is better then the best NES system, it just doesn't work like that and all the Android app player is, is an emulator

    Not every app will be ported. It's not a walk in the park

    Naw, I believe the post, So lets just let the thread run its course. Any android users feel 'stung' by this can run along to the android forum and frolic in the flowers.

    I don't think too many people will be messing around with side loading, other than a few Crackberrians.

    I really wish people wouldn't make claims like this. It sets BB10 up for failure. The way my playbook runs some android apps, I can guarantee its no indication of how any modern android device would run it

    Do we actually have confirmation that the final BB10 will allow sideloading for the masses. Considering what that does to device security? It was one thing on an unfinished PlayBook, it's a whole 'nuther can of worms on a phone that boasts the best security in the industry. Side loading on your phone, unless you converted the .apk to a .bar on your computer, is as risky as side loading on Android and jail breaking on iOS.

    I might acquiesce to the "best android capable phone running a gingerbread emulator, that can't run all android apps", but that claim that a BB10 phone is better at doing all things Android better than an N4 or a GSIII is completely without merit, and I am sure there are others.

    I agree with Rello, there is a post in the PlayBook forum about a user who bought a PlayBook because he was told at the store the PB could run Android apps and now is disappointed with the fact that he can't run a lot of apps he thought he was going to be able to.

    Thank u....I don't hate the android app player, but it doesn't run any important apps people really want. I got words with friends and yes it is nice to play, but wow it freezes every 5 minutes or so. Sideloading is going to be a horrible experience for any general consumer that attempts it.

    Unless RIM has added SIGNIFICANT improvements to the android player in BB10, the statement that BB10 essentially will be the best Android device is total bs lol

    The android app player in latest build on the dev alpha is night and day compared to what is on the PlayBook. It runs so well that I prefer using apps like flip board, twitter, pulse, etc. on the dev alpha than on my HTC Amaze. Rim has made some significant progress on the app player since release of PlayBook 2.0 last year.

    I basically don't use the Android app player on my PlayBook, but uses a ton of them on the dev alpha. I can have eight different android apps all running on the multitasking screen and they work fine.

    Just to show you guys, here's a screenshot of 8 android apps running on my dev alpha.

    Daily Motion and Crackberry Forums are from App World. The others are sideloaded. Obviously whether or not sideloading's allowed is an issue, but RIM basically just need to convince these vendors to port their apps over (if they don't want to dev a native app).

    Wow, thanks for sharing. That's the kind of info people needed to hear lol and I really hope that's the case. I'm glad RIM has made improvements cause it actually could be a big + for the platform giving that apps really run in a smooth manner.

    I still think that saying it will be essentially the best Android device is taking it too far though lol

    I think some people mis-understood. BB10 running Anroid apps is good thing so buying bb10 which supports native apps and thousands of Anroid apps makes it the best of all.
    Best of iOS, Windows, Anroid with BB10 solid hardware and security. So instead of someone buying new phone thinking Anroid might buy bb10 as most of popular apps will be native apps by RIM and some special non-native apps can be anroid apps
