    Hi, just an Android user here who wants to jump ship to BB. One concern though, is the app "ecosystem", which would seemingly be solved by the Amazon announcement. I know you'll be able to download apps, which is cool, but how about Amazon Prime Video (which I subscribe to) and Amazon Music? I know I can just use the browser (maybe) for those things, but apps would be nice and put me over the edge in terms of getting a Z30. Will these things work on a Blackberry?

    Sorry if the question is obvious, but I'm not an experienced BB10 user, so your help is appreciated! Thanks.

    • Amazon Prime Music is supported but at this time, you cannot download files. Only stream.
    • Amazon Instant Video AFIK works through the browser in desktop mode with Flash enabled*.

    *However, since there's no Android app for it anyway unless you're on a Amazon device, you're not really 'giving it up' to move to a BlackBerry. You don't have it to begin with on Android, it's only on iOS.

    Thanks for the quick reply, Bla1ze! You're right about the Amazon video, for some reason they only have an app for iOS. As long as I can stream Amazon music, then I'm happy!

    BTW, I'm impressed that you replied to my newbie post... That's a strong recommendation for considering BB, the community is great!
