    What about a 10.2 app that takes you to Google Play, pretends it's an android phone but with bb10 specs, automatically coverts the downloaded file to BAR and then sideloads it onto the bb10 device? Also it filters out any apps that don't work or are already listed on BlackBerry World...can this be done, even if it has to be distributed outside of bb world?

    At this point in time, all ideas including yours should be explored by BlackBerry.

    It was interesting to note on today's Crackberry podcast that Bla 1ze hinted that BlackBerry might be working on something that will address this apps dilemma. I wish someone can elaborate on this rumour.

    Because if you've ever tried side loading apps to BlackBerry 10 you'll notice even though it says it can run any 4,2 app. It really can't a lot of Android ports run really slow, lag ,and drain a lot of battery. I believe if BlackBerry were to have the play store a lot of apps wouldn't be able to run. And I believe this would cause a bad impression along the uneducated tech consumers causing them to think that BlackBerry is to slow/bad to run apps.
    BlackBerry should just continue trying to heavily increase the amount of quality (not you S4BB) apps in BlackBerry World.

    I think this thread "Friend tells me Google Play coming with 10.2.1" in BlackBerry 10 OS "sub forum" pretty much helps to address my curiosity. If you haven't read that thread yet, I recommend that you do so.
