    I find that a great thing with both OSs available in the same session. If BlackBerry would decide to pursue bb10 as a major player & update the runtime to the latest version, I would stick with it rather than to be locked into Android with a few bb10 decorations... having 2 simultaneous ecosystems is, to my limited knowledge, unique & expansive... I like it.

    There was talk of Windows Phone doing the same, Though I assume it was, like most things, a rumor.

    But you don't really get two ecosystems. Native BB10 isn't much of an ecosystem and the android runtime without google services is lame too. Together they don't really add up to one decent ecosystem. Hence the priv.

    Yes, SailfishOS has one as well and it works great! (had a Jolla Phone before I got the Passport two months ago)

    You do realize that BB included the runtime, not out of the goodness of their hearth, but because they were "desperate" for apps. Having the runtime also has a bad side, as it consumes more resources (especially RAM) and apps have a very disjointed design language.
