    Yes, when you update your phone to 10.2.1, you'll automatically gain the ability to install Android apk's directly on the device
    They should work right

    For the most part, all of the android features are built into the BlackBerry android emulator. The only thing it does not have is Google services.

    You do not need to install anything. It is all built into the 10.2.1 operating system. Simply hold down the file and click install on the right toolbar.

    Yes. Just download any apk and install it. They will work up until android version 4.2 (4.3 when 10.3 launches)

    The apps work fine except for Google play services.
