    It isn't that strange a question. Other than the fact that BlackBerry seems to have put all their efforts into Android, it could be done. Windows has a porting kit to allow iOS developers to put their applications in the Windows store. It translates iOS UI and system calls into the equivalent Windows calls. I haven't looked into too much if it only allow iOS developers to hit Windows Phone it isn't that attractive. But throw on top of that Windows 10 desktop, laptop and tablets you get ti a pretty respectable market.

    Have you played with Islandwood lately? It's not even close to that demo they did. I would categorize this as demoware or vapourware.

    Microsoft has put more effort lately into just teaching developers the Win10 tools. I think that's a lot smarter.

    Amazing how a joke response suddenly becomes rumor.

    And the solar upgrade didn't seem like a bigger deal?

    CrackBerry has been clutching at straws so that future OS/updates phones will totally be the silver bullet to make BlackBerry #1.

    Well, of course you port a program to another OS by compiling it on that OS. So yes Microsoft provides compilers for Swift as well as Objective C.

    Yes, it is always smarter to try to get developers to take advantage of the features of the native OS. But buying Islandwood was also a smart move even if it isn't yet all you expect it to be.

    Oh, I didn't realize they had bought Islandwood. Wow, I'm skeptical it will ever amount to anything more than a demo. The project seems scarcely updated now. It still doesn't support the ObjC runtime in iOS9. And now there is a new version shipping in iOS10 of course.

    That is according to an interview with an MS VC++ developer I listened to recently. Porting and emulation environments will always be behind the product they aim to port or emulate, unless they get really good support from the developers of the original. Same thing happened to the BlackBerry Android Runtime.

    There is also a fine line between letting developers test market their applications on a new platform without a big investment, and convincing them they don't have to develop for your platform but can still access your customers. Also where BlackBerry has fallen down.

    The update will also allow you to run Sega games on your phone. There is a bluetooth add on.

    That would be great! They could rebrand the Passport as the "BlackBerry Sonic"...

    I think that hypervisor with IOS may be a great stuff...but Apple will not permit EVER this! IOS it' s better than Android and moreover it's a professional OS that eats low ram...so technically I think it's possible but...will not! I hope will be BBOS 12...somewhere in this forum !
