Android support in both Personal and Work Space perimeters

Hoping someone could please tell me if Blackberry supports or is playing to support the ability to run Android apps in both the Personal as well as Work Space perimeters within a BB10 OS.  Also, I heard there might be ways to containerize an Android app and run that within the Work Space perimter applying security policies to it.

Hey Paul, thanks for visiting the forums.


We do currently support running Android applications in the Personal perimeter, but not in the Work perimeter.


We are evaluating Android in the Work perimeter, however there are no current release plans.


Hope this helps Smiley Happy
