    There has been lots of discussion around why Google Play not being available on non-Android devices hurt BB10. But now, ChromeOS gets Google Play. Doesn't this go against Google's own rules, and might they now loosen them for BlackBerry?

    This is probably why 10.3.3 has been delayed...they are updating the ART!

    Edit...title should have read ChromeOS...moderator welcome to update.

    And no, this does not mean that BlackBerry will be updating to a current Android runtime.

    If there was an update coming for BB10 that made BB10 viable... don't think Chen would have just shut down the whole hardware division.

    ChromeOS is not Chrome Browser... and what it sounds like is they are working towards is a merging Chrome and Android to create Andromeda - at which point you probably won't see open source code being release anymore.

    Thanks...and the ART was simply a day dream.

    It is so frustrating though, that the one thing really holding back BB10 could be so easily dismissed when Google wants to use a new OS. I know that they own it so can make the rules, but it does seem to be a little anti-competitive [shocker!]
