    It's not a secret anymore that the Slider will be running Android. So, the question many of us are asking is: Will we get that update or get asked if we want to change our OS?
    Maybe some light is showing at the end of the tunnel.

    It's an HTML5 app made with Ionic and WebWorks, for the enterprise only, using Material Design. The thing is, why not update their current code with the 10.3 feel and look? Why make it Material?

    Because all the leaks point to vanilla Android with BlackBerry specific apps. Google wants people to use Material Design, BlackBerry is becoming their minion, so they will code the way Google wants them to code. Did people really believe you were going to get a BB10 skin on Android and you would have a BB10 device for all practical purposes with all of the Android apps?

    I bet that's part of the deal with Google. It would have been awesome if phone came with a BB10 skin
    What I really want is the official release of the phone!
