    Meet the BlackBerry wizardry that created its 'better Android than Android' - The ingenious hack that throws the company a lifeline

    Exclusive Some remarkable technical wizardry lies behind BlackBerrys Android coup. When it was launched in January, BlackBerrys new OS was brand new BlackBerry 10 and largely app-less. But today it can execute Android apps at impressive speed. How did they do it? Thanks to some helpful inside knowledge, The Register will reveal it all.

    Don't let cjh see this again, he will start miss using the word hack in the modern sense rather than how it was intended in this article.

    Still don't care for Android apps on a Blackberry. It's a temporary solution but a permanent solution is needed asap.

    "... dynamic cross linking..." with QNX Was a hardware mod included in the schematics perhaps?

    I think if this pursuit continues it'll only mean sky rocketing costs for BBRY in keeping up with hardware specifications for consumerism... chasing high-end Android apps and their developers etc.

    And I don't believe the risks of potential security breaches could afford this continuation either. But, I know 'bugger all' about engineering these things, so maybe a better and a more resourceful choice would be to start funding developer incentives, i.e. with a codified optional developer etiquette for an official BBRY ranking -- push some real ingenuity and competition etc. into the BBRY market.

    Seriously, the opportunities are simply endless.

    Anyway, nice job on the "intensive" hack
