    Fed up with these threads.. They don't have any impact on BlackBerry's plans.. It just gives a bad image of BlackBerry for CB visitors

    Sure, just as soon as Google parts ways with Android and no longer tracks its users. Or in other words, as soon as you need snow tires in Hell.

    I would! It would be a day one purchase for me and at this point, the only way I'd consider going back to a BB as my primary phone.

    Hey Witmen, android central might be a better place for you to hang out in. All you do is bash on BlackBerry.

    What happened to you putting me on ignore? You just told me that you didn't want to read what I have to say anymore and now you're quoting my posts that have nothing at all to do with you?

    If I break a rule, report me. If you dont like my opinions, put me on ignore, otherwise, please, leave me alone. Thanks in advance!

    I like what they did already, short of plunging the Amazon app store right into the undeletable files (can we all say 'Ugh!'?). BlackBerry now gives us the option of getting those apps we want that dont come native anymore . I dont want an android phone ever again. Hopefully as the word gets around that you can have BlackBerry without android bu!!$h!+ people will start buying in larger numbers, inspiring app developers to resume Made for BlackBerry apps and we wont have to compromise our phones with android apps and their permissions requirements.

    As was stated in other replies, android apps and Google and the phone company bloatware apps is about tracking, in fact tracking even at the expense of functionality, the antithesis of what BlackBerry is about and why people want BlackBerrys.

    There comes a point where you find your own line in the sand, do you want android or do you want BlackBerry?

    BlackBerry went a long way to meet everyone halfway, and i think they did an amazing job of that, who can blame them if it doesnt all work perfect 100% percent of the time.

    In my opinion, the compromise was never meant to make BlackBerrys function with an android button to push for every action, but a safe accommodation of a limited number of android apps to fit peoples needs. And they did all this while their superior quality phones are being priced like second-rate cheap android phones. In all fairness we should have to start paying for what we are getting at some point.

    My few android ports for music all function and maybe not as sleek and fluid as their BlackBerry counterparts did (or, still DO on BlackBerry 7), at least i can still have it all with my BlackBerrys!

    Why would Samsung want to do that though? Keeping in mind that the Android runtime in BB10 would cause a lot of problems for them. Why would Samsung want to go from the world's most popular mobile operating system to selling devices that run BB10?

    Sure it would be great for BlackBerry if that were to happen, but how would it benefit Samsung?

    I prefer BlackBerry as BlackBerry for all and more than the reasons you mentioned.

    When I was looking to switch platforms it took some time because I didn't want to go to Android.
    Thank Goodness for BlackBerry 10.

    Not reading anything else but the title.

    If BB made thier OS Android, how much better would they really be than HTC, which at the moment is failing because of two mistakes with the M9 according to the masses. Screen and Camera. Just two friggin things. Think fo how BB would be pummled if it released an android phone with anything less than 1440p, 810 snapdragon, 4gb ram and a 25mp ois, super camera.

    if HTC can't do it.

    BB never can.

    hell if LG, HTC, Sony and Lenovo combined cant do it, BB can't

    If I wanted Android I'd buy one, so no. I'll keep my BlackBerry and BB10 OS.

    I really like my BlackBerry.
    I think that a better runtime support would be nice. Even if it's necessary to have Google Apps installed to get Google store fully functional (but I must be able to remove Google Apps lol).

    No. Even thought I do have a few Android apps on my Passport, and that is only because there isn't a BB equivalent, I prefer moving away from Google's dominance and "surveillance" in order to turn us into an advertising commodity. Like with FB we are not the customers, we are the product.

    Posted using my BlackBerry Passport.
