    Do we know if the Priv is using the stock android kb or the BlackBerry virtual kb?

    The Priv's BlackBerry Keyboard is now available as an app in the Google Play Store. Image below posted by sidhuk in Simulator thread.

    I see that it mentions the Priv, but I don't see where it says it can only be installed on the Priv.

    Edit: But then it doesn't make sense for BlackBerry to give their apps away for free.

    Devs can restrict their apps to compatible models. Other Android devices won't even see the Priv keyboard listed unless BB wants them to have access. Doesn't mean someone won't upload it to APKMirror or something.

    Maybe it will be 'BlackBerry services' dependant.

    Then again, it IS an android app so more than likely it won't be hard for others to get the install file

    ...which is somewhat funny. Runtime reversed.

    I'm sure BBRY won't be upset to see its apks bandied around.

    Good to hear. And as if like magic a post appears on crackberry news page confirming just that. Lot of people getting miffed about the possibility of other android users being able to have the BlackBerry vkb. Strange how people get pissed for Devs not making apps for bb10 then complain when BlackBerry shares some love.

    I think the philosophy is let people have some tastes of BlackBerry in the hope that they might warm to the full experience.
