    Looking at the navbar i would say that it's emulated. Installing native android on bb10 devices is not possible.

    That's just the Android runtime on BB10, nothing new.

    Nah, you can get to the Android settings without Cobalt's apps installed.

    That's right, the settings one is the only one I still have installed. From the looks of it, this is the one in OP's picture.

    "Oslo was intended to be BlackBerry’s first Android release, and BlackBerry and Google worked together to make core Google apps like Gmail and Chrome compatible with the Passport’s 1:1 aspect ratio.

    However, the amount of time and effort required to make Google Play Services work at such an unusual aspect ratio for essentially one device was deemed not worth it; the decision to scuttle Oslo was made by both BlackBerry and Google — though other factors also played a role, according to our sources."

    I get it, I thought there might be a way without installing anything.
