    Any Idea why there aren't any apps built by Google as they have for all other platforms? Like gmail and Google maps, translate..... does Google have something against blackberry!?

    Google has been pulling their apps from all non android platforms.

    Not really. They have shown a willingness to support platforms that have the numbers to present ROI.

    Heck, Google has released apps on iOS before Android. All about the eyeballs.

    +1

    Google themselves have said that they'd do apps for BB10 or even Windows Phone if either platform attracted enough users.

    I really wish they would support their apps. We should try to let Google know we need their apps!!! (though I don't know how to let them know)

    Agreed. Nothing like Google maps with voice guide. Even bemaps don't work as well.
    though it's very good.

    You really will only find Google Apps on Android and iOS.

    Google had been consolidating offerings. Latitude is an example. So even Android is not immune from cuts.

    With 10.2 the latest Google Maps is easy to side load and works perfectly for me. Shame BlackBerry can't persuade more devs to put GOOD Android apps in BB World as with 10.2 they work very well.
