    Hey RIM, listen up! My idea is to 2 prong approach to OS.

    Releash BB10 and release other phones that run Android. Which gives us BB lovers ours and Android lovers theirs! BB! Have it your way!

    Any idea how difficult your proposal actually is?

    And the lower margins and marketing nightmare it would be?

    Unless your name is Samsung, you're not selling a whole lot of Android devices

    Many people think that making a Frankenstien monster is easy. Just a question of gathering all the parts and slapping them on.

    Crazy unfocused plan that would result in disaster.

    If it were that easy, Chinese pirates would be loading Android OS versions on real BlackBerry devices and not making really cheap knockoffs. They don't, cause the payoff would not be equal to the amount of work involved, if it was even possible.

    If you want an Android device, then buy one.

    If people speculate RIM might not have enough to pull off the BB10 launch, what makes u think they'd have enough to launch BB10 and new android based devices?

    Are people not realistic anymore?

    Thats not a bad idea but it could be confusing. I would say that idea has past their minds. I would imagine, if they decided to release devices with BB OS and others with Android OS, they would just continue to beef up BB 7 and then turn a focus on premium Android devices with a BB style. Creating a new OS and then offering a leading competitive OS could be viewed as admitting defeat.
