    So for this to be real, the following must be true.

    1. Unless anybody with a Z10 can install Google Play, the phone in the photo is running a modified version of BB10 that will allow Google Play to be installed.

    But doesn't this fly in the face of the whole.... "BlackBerry can't be hacked/rooted/jailbroken" deal? So which is more likely? It's fake, or some dude hacked/rooted/jailbroke BB10? Take your pick.

    A part of the reason.
    Huge part. When people ask me what phone to get if they currently have an iPhone or DROID I don't want to tell them bb10 then they will start asking me whee such and such app is. Not worth the headache. Let's face it people want apps

    How would BlackBerry go about implementation g this? Would they pay a lump sum to Google?

    Why would they pay Google if Google is going to make money off of your purchases anyway........



    And who says that this is 10.2.1? Hmmmmmmm.............

    This is incredibly easy to fake. All you have to do is take a screenshot from an android phone and create an app with the name called Play Store that displays that screenshot and load the bar file onto the phone. With 0 evidence of anything in action, this is no confirmation at all.
    Only issue with this theory is BlackBerry App World would have to approve a useless app called "Play Store" which is not currently found and wouldn't happen regardless... almost though.

    Edit: Noticed you were referring to an App in Google Play and side loading it to the BlackBerry. Arduous process if you ask me, but I'll mull over it..

    Yes, it is an application. However, it doesn't work because BlackBerry has specifically blacklisted certain APIs that are in there and as such it blows up during installation.

    This has been attempted, incidentally, including by some, uh.... motivated people....

    Is the Play Store an application? Hmmm, if so and we downloaded an .apk and converted it a bar, couldn't we sideload it just as any other app.

    Update: A quick google search rendered a bunch of links to Play Store .apk's.

    Wouldn't be hard to get this running, even if it doesn't properly work long enough to do anything worth substance.

    I love the idea, but ultimately this proves nothing. I'd like to see a video, opening the play store, finding, downloading and installing an app. Then I'll be sold.

    Because 10.2.1 has pins on the side

    Just curious but how do you know it's photoshopped and how do you know they're running 10.2.1? Just curious since there's no evidence and we don't even know if the thread about play store coming in 10.2.1 is real/right.

    IMHO this looks pretty legit

    He's guessing based on faulty assumptions (that all 10.2.1.x builds will have pins, and the Play builds are in the 10.2.1.x branch only).

    Who exactly is Wigley anyhow? Is this person a trusted source?
