    My belief is we will ultimately end up with Android on top of QNX core skinned to look like BB10. I can't think of any reason for them not to take advantage of the power and scalability of the microkernal core of QNX.

    It should also by its very nature be more secure though, as we've seen in cars recently, the weakest link in any OS / App stack can be exploited. Careful attention to what has privileged access will need to be taken.

    FYI, I don't have any inside information it just seems logical to me. BlackBerry needs Google Play access to gain access to the apps that require it not to mention the wearable that require that infrastructure.

    We will though give in to the total tracking of our lives which is all things Google. Why do you think Microsoft is so afraid of them.

    Don't flame me, this is just my 2 cents.

    I believe this is the direction they are going. The only real obstacle is porting the hardware drivers but I'm sure they have that down.

    It would have the added benefit of preventing xda d00dz from attempting to rebake the BlackBerry rom onto any other devices as well.

    Missed that one or I wouldn't have started another thread.

    It is SO logical you gotta believe there is no chance of it happening.

    I remember proposing on here, over a year ago, the idea that bb might release an android skinned device along side of bb10 devices, boy did I get flamed, and here we are now with it being a real possibility.
