    The only reason to allow APK to be installed directly is because there are plans to allow access to Google Play - the official source of APK's and all the Android applications a person or a BUSINESS could want.

    And that is the question - are they doing this for consumers or Business or both?

    I don't see a BlackBerry with access to the Android market being a huge consumer success for the company. Being in direct competition with the marketing and pricing power of Samsung would be a death sentence. But in the business market where BlackBerry does have some unique features - premium prices could be asked and with there being no limitations on not having the TOOL that business want... it might be a success. (personally I think that ship has sailed and that even here competition in both software and hardware is going to make profitability for BlackBerry a difficult prospect)

    And how is not having this feature going to make it more of a success?

    Can someone update us on what is the latest build version. And also if someone could share what new we will see and when.

    Leak is good but even knowing about the os development is great.

    It could increase BB10 device sales as these are now at a steep discounted price. People who were holding off because of lack of apps, can now commit to buying BB10!

    Interesting commentary, however the single biggest complaint against BB from non users is the lack of apps. If you can't convince DEV's to make applications for our platform than BB needs this to happen - even if it's optics.

    BB world can still be the home for premium/native dedicated apps.

    Would be nice. Possible but at the same time hard to believe.

    Wonder how the whole thing would work? Will Blackberry users be able to leave reviews? How heavily modified of a Google Play version would we get, if true? Android allows devs to create some crazy apps that would never be able to run properly on a Blackberry device.. for example apps that make use of the status bar, widgets, pop-up windows, floating apps, apps that require gestures(would interfere with bbos10 gestures), etc..

    Also, if true, there has to be some Android devs out there that have some clue about it because of device testing especially the bigger developers. wouldnt they see a bbos 10 device accessing their apps? This is a pretty big deal so I am surprised there havent been any more leaks/screens regarding the subject

    Is this supposed to be some definitive justification for your response?

    Google play is coming (pre-loaded)
    if this is true, then this is the BIGGEST word to remind ...
    Because it swipes objections all together ... and raises a lot of questions too
    oh.my.

    P.s: still VERY cautious. Waiting.
