    BlackBerry isn't giving up on BB10, but it may let Android app stores shoulder some of the third-party app burden.
    Chris Smith, Blackberry's vice president for its application platform, BlackBerry isn't Android, and the company isn't seeking the Google certifications needed to legitimately run Google's store and services.

    Not a bad article. I do hope they talk to Google about services however.

    That won't happen...

    BlackBerry might seek an even closer or more formal relationship with existing app stores, Smith said.
    "We're still thinking about what the right experience is there, but we've definitely opened it up much more to the average consumer," Smith said.
    Let's make one thing clear, though: this excludes the Google Play store, or any Google services. BlackBerry isn't Android, and the company isn't seeking the Google certifications needed to legitimately run Google's store and services.
