    I am on the 1925 leak and I absolutely love it, particularly being able to download APKs directly to phone. Also, the runtime does a really good job executing most of the ones I've used. I decided to play around a little and downloaded 3 very different android launchers via SNAP. All 3 downloaded and installed perfectly. They all opened without a hitch. And honestly, ran as smooth or in some cases smoother than some of my previous android phones. But one thing I found very interesting was that they only showed android apps whether it was on the home screen, or in the app drawer. Most of them were able to link out to the blackberry texting app or phone when pressing the corresponding button on the launcher. So,in conclusion, fun to play with but definitely not an option for anyone who would want to run one I'd the launchers as a daily home screen.

    It's fun to test the runtime capabilities and just to mess with friends sometimes :P

    I agree that BlackBerry 10 is an AMAZING OS. Very glad that I took the plunge 4 mos ago :-). But there are some cool launchers on android and it is fun to confuse people when at first glance they see BlackBerry 10, then they think they're seeing stock android, next they see WP8. Not to mention, I am very impressed at how well the z10 can actually run android applications. Definitely better than most low and mid range android devices and seemingly on par with some higher end devices.
