    I was messing around creating a few concepts this morning they differ from Z30 running KitKat to a pebble watch. I don't have a name for what I'd call this gear maybe some help?

    I'll tell you what to call these renders........blasphemy!

    How dare you deface a Z10 and Z30 by displaying Android all over them!

    Lol just busting your chops, the pics look cool. I wouldn't get rid of BB10 OS for Android anytime soon as I'm loving my experience.

    For sure! I'd love a full Pebble BB10 watch, lord knows it would work better then any other smart watch OS.

    What i'd do is show how you think key features like the hub would integrate into android 4.4. Make screen shoots of how the KEY features that people love in bb10 could integrate with key features that Android has. Like show the hub with the Android notification pulled 1/2 way down. Maybe show the Hub on a HTC One M8 with the Android Notification Center. Again I think if people though of great ways the strengths of both platforms could function together it would be eye opening.

    Android is so cluttered and disorganized. I mean widgets and apps are scrambled everywhere on the OS.

    An Android powered BlackBerry could have been skinned with BlackBerry 10's UI.

    They are as scrambled as you make them. YOU choose how it looks. Everything is customization.

    Beautiful Android Themes, Wallpapers, and Homescreens

    100% agree! Everytime I pick up my brothers GS3 or my buddies Nexus5 I'm lost. It's not intuitive right out of the box. I know you can tailor Android to whatever your preference is and that's a nice feature in a phone to have but the experience is definitely not consistent across the board unlike Apple and BB10.

    If I have a BlackBerry Q10 and get a Z10 or Z30 the experience isn't so dramatically changed. That?s even more prevalent in the iPhone world. But with Android, it's like every model I pick up and look at is different and I personally find that experience taxing. I don't mind learning a new OS just make sure the experience is the same or similar across-the-board.

    I bet you could say this same exact thing for anyone who comes from android or iOS going to a bb10 phone. BB10's gestures are not intuitive. Every OS has to be learned. BB10 is no different.
    Kevin was even saying how the gestures aren't intuitive on the crackberry podcasts when they were reviewing why the sales were so bad and why BB wasn't capturing existing bb7 customers.

    Well I guess we'll agree to disagree as I found BB10 intuitive to get started. Sure I might not have known every service or feature right off the bat but the experience felt familiar. Maybe I could contribute that to my knowledge of BlackBerry in general or my anticipation of BB10 prior to launch who knows. Either way, I've yet to pick up an Android device and feel confident in navigating the OS, unlike Apple, WP or BlackBerry.

    To each there own though, what I found difficult others find easy and vice versa.

    OP's post is how Z30 will look if Google ever lets BB into the Playstore. So don't pine for it unless you want it ALL.

    It's not if, but when. And they won't ditch BlackBerry 10. At least not right away.

    I thought the same until just recently. I have been using a Z10 for personal stuff, and my old iPhone 4 to get my work E-mails (since my company's IT does not support BB10). I have been so sick of the iPhone that decided last week to get an Android phone instead. So, I bought a Galaxy Note 3, but hated it! As you said, I found its OS very cluttered. So, I returned it and got a Nexus 5 instead. What a difference! I find the OS in Nexus 5 a pleasure to use. I think BB10 is still the best OS, primarily because of the hub, but the Android OS in Nexus 5 is a close second. I now think it's the Samsung's extra software that makes Android so cluttered. The more pure version in Nexus 5 seems to be a lot better.
