    What's stopping BlackBerry from joining the alliance going forward?
    As I understand it - BB10 is.

    Title is definitely misleading. I thought it IS a confirmation. But it's not. Its seeking confirmation. Should fix that. Journalistic integrity and all...

    They should filter it so free apps and lower quality apps come from Google play and paid apps will be handled through BlackBerry world

    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.
    The rumor is that this is an agreement outside of the Open Handset Alliance. Hence why I'm skeptical, yet also reaching out based on the amount of unofficial positive weighing in on this. Also... Jerry and I work together.

    Looks like word is getting out beyond the forums in a bigger way... via Gigaom:

    Google Play might be coming to BlackBerry with next update of BB10 €” Tech News and Analysis

    Hopefully we'll see some word come back from BBRY soon.

    Yikes, that article went as far as saying that the Google Play Store may also become available on the PlayBook as well. As if there wasn't enough speculation surrounding this rumor already...

    Members of the OHA have to make Android Handsets that are blessed by Google and must comply with the rules of the OHA.

    He could be. I'm sure he isn't perfect either.

    Kevin I want to see chris umis thoughts on the implications for BlackBerry World, pros and cons etc.! Love u guys, keep up the awesome work!

    Good question. I'm actually quite curious about that too.
    Maybe it will be merged into the Playstore to make a mega store?
    Or BlackBerry World exclusively for native apps?
    Or maybe we just land up with 2 stores, Samsung has their own app store plus the Google Playstore, so that's also possible.

    Kevin agree +1000000000000!
    If these are just rumours and nothing is going to come of it BlackBerry should be looking at squashing them quick or providing some kind of clarity.
    The rumour is gaining momentum every day and before we know it one person will claim that this information came from BlackBerry and everyone starts throwing their toys out again because BlackBerry didn't deliver. The fact that BlackBerry never really mentioned a word on it won't make any difference to the doomsday-ers, once they get going on their hate rampages they spread like wild fire

    I know you and Jerry work together... how about you go and ask him about his source at Google?
    See post #288 in the thread below too.

    Kevin, where did you get an avatar like that? was it an app or did you commission someone to make it? Also this would be awesome to have GP on BB10
    also that article you linked to, says it would come to the playbook.

    So multiple people with I assume different sources with the same / similar rumours of the Google Play Store are all discounted by Jerry?

    You must be knowing how high up his source is then?

    That's the only reason I can think of that makes you not want us to get our hopes up?

    Didn't say he was perfect; though I'm more inclined to believe him and his Google source than I am trolls on CrackBerry.

    people complaining about the thread title? ....honestly?

    When I read it, I see Kevin reached out for some answers...nothing more. Not sure how the title is misleading, not like he said in the title "and I got a response" LOL

    Do you all gripe about Discover Channel when they title a show "Finding Bigfoot"?

    Bla1ze, a troll? When Catlin spoke of it on another thread, Bla1ze's remark was not to discount what he had to say.
