    There hasn't been any sign of it.

    If you want to try an alternative, there's Pushbullet, or if you have a PC running the Windows 10 Anniversary Update (Insider, or after August 2), there's Cortana. For the latter, you may need to grab the APK somewhere if it isn't in your country.

    Checked with Sales no blend it does not have. A shame I will stick with my Classic for now and wait to see what next physical keyboard Blackberry looks like

    They'd have to make it run on the Android OS in general. And since it doesn't support the Priv, it's not supporting the Neon... er... DTEK50 either.

    Boy, I'm just not used to typing that name out.

    since this uses Blackberry Contacts i doubt 3rd party sms apphs would work with that, so you would have to use Android Native Contacts
    which it does not have , will be curious to see if anyone can text from their computer with this phone, does not look like they will be able to and that is a must for me. I will use my classic until it does not work anymore with Blend and Exchange then go to whatever blackberry Device still is supported at end of 2017, would love to have another Classic running bb10 is the dream as form factor the best

    Blend is a big deal to me as well. I have it running all day on my desktop at work. Lack of blend is probably why I did not by the Priv months ago. Seems like Pushbullet and some new windows features sort of fill the void, so i'm thinking I might make my way to BB android before too long.

    Nothing beats Airdroid. Closest to Blend as you'll ever get and in some ways it's even better.

    Does Airdroid allow you to see and reply to BBM and all other Hub notifications? (Emails and texts)

    I don't use BBM so I don't know if the notification shows up but some others do show in the Hub. Also I think it's great for file transfer and remote access to your phone

    To be honest: I do not trust Airdroid in a way. Windows told me that the Airdroid installer is not a trustable application. And doing my private stuff via internet browser/Airdoid is anoying me completely.

    Windows told you...

    Yeah, because Windows/Microsoft is renowned for being trustworthy, right? I had to fend off I don't know how many attempts by Microsoft to force Windows 10 down my throat.

    Anyway, I do miss Blend. I think if BlackBerry found a way to bring it to Android it would be a money maker. I'd pay for it.

    I am actually bailing on my DTEK50 after 1 week - the whole Android experience and no blend, so I have to keep reaching for my phone, after 3 + years of leaving it on the desk is too much for me.

    Tomorrow, I am buying a used Z30 to stay productive. Moving backwards to keep moving forward....

    Fuse by one of our own is in development.

    My phone Explorer client works fairly well.

    Yep, BlackBerry Blend is pretty much dead. I had it installed on my Microsoft Surface when it was running Windows 8...now on Windows 10 no sign of it...

    Truth be told, I barely ever used it...
