    I'm buying a Classic soon. I want to know from experienced users here.

    Can I delete the Amazon Store app and any other thing related to the concept of "integration with android"

    I want to have a "BlackBerry OS"-only experience with the device. Is this doable?

    The Android runtime is baked in as a part of the core operating system so you won't be able to remove it.

    It can be disabled to a degree but not removed completely.

    Don't sign into it, or if you have then log out. Clear data under storage settings for Amazon app.

    To add to Semime"s suggrstion....disable Amazon apps under Parental Controls. This will also remove the apps from screen visibility.

    Parental control → disable Amazon Apps does not just Hide them, it Removes them completely (if you turn Amazon back on it will reinstall the apps).

    The runtime itself cannot be disabled, some apps in BlackBerry World are straight Android Ports so they will use the runtime.
    You might be able to 'break' the runtime by sideloading two different versions together, but I'm not sure if that would improve the stability of your device.

    There are other Android Apps... like Ghost Commander that will allow you to remove the Amazon Apps.

    But I just always move the Android Apps and a few other useless things you can't uninstall into a folder, without ever running the app the first time.

    But Android is baked into BB10, and the vast majority of Apps need it to run. If you never install an Android Port from BBW.... not sure how much of the Android Runtime is active.
