    Hey All,

    So if you've been following the forums the last few days, I'm sure you have noticed they are tons of threads and posts about the rumor that Google Play / Services may be coming to BlackBerry 10 in a way that's done w/ approval from Google.

    Just wanted to let you know that I have reached out to BBRY looking for any sort of official brief, confirmation, statement, etc. that they can provide to us at this time.

    This would be a pretty massive big deal for BlackBerry and BlackBerry users if it pans out, so am hoping we can get some official clarification one way or another to the extent they can provide. Due to the nature and implications of this sort of news, want to hold off posting it on the blogs until we truly know the full extent, despite all the "unofficial" talk on it.

    If it's true that BBRY is really doing a deal (or has done one) with Google that permits BlackBerry to put the Google Play store and Google Services onto BlackBerry 10, that's a big deal for BlackBerry. And if it's not true, or is going to pan out in a way that's limited, feels like it would make more sense to correct the nature of the rumor before it gets out of control beyond the core community reading this now.

    Will keep you posted as I know more at the "official" level.

    Great to hear...

    The title is misleading by the way.

    I'm sorry to say that even if Kevin himself gets confirmation there are those who would still not believe. Me, Personally I have no
    horse in this race but I'm just saying what others are thinking.

    Kevin, this won't happen as BlackBerry are not members of the OHA, Jerry from Android Central has already debunked this as nothing more than a rumour.

    Hope you bring great news, Kevin. This would sort of close the app gap and attract customers who want a secure device with the existing Android app portfolio. BlackBerry 10, best platform available!

    What's stopping BlackBerry from joining the alliance going forward?

    BlackBerry could join some group....

    Debunking something is not the same as going to the horse and getting the words directly from him. Most of us are VERY skeptical that this would happen. Of course most of us didn't see BB10 being such a huge flop either.
