    Is there a virtual machine for bb10 to run Windows on the bb10(like parallels or virtual box) for mac? I think it should be possible cuz the bb10 is so strong as a computer. It will be perfect.

    No there isn't. The one they have is for android. If they add any more then they will need to add more memory.

    The other thing you have to remember is most virtual solutions (parallels, VMware, VirtualBox) use the virtualization support in x86 hardware, and run x86 guest Operating Systems. I don't believe the Arm processors used in smartphones support virtualization, and if they did using technology like parallels, VMware or VirtualBox you would have to run an Arm based guest OS, like iOS, WP8 or Android. Which would be cool and as we have seen with the Android run time potentially useful. To run OSX, Win7/8 or x86 Linux you would have to use technology like Qemu which emulates the hardware as well. There are large performance penalties to doing this.
