I am just wondering if i am making my android application with minSdkVersion 15 (ICS-4.0.3) and targetSdkVersion 19(Kitkat-4.4) on android. Can I install it on Blackberry 10.2.1 ? BB 10.2.1 supports Jelly Bean (4.2.2) but not sure it provides same sort of compatability layer how Android runtime provides.
Can anyone confirm or share their experiance related to this?

You can use a minSdkVersion of 15, however you will be limiting the availability of your app to BlackBerry devices with OS 10.2 and onwards.
You can also use a targetSdkVersion of 19 with one caveat. If your app utilizes the libraries that are present in SDK levels above 17, they are likely to crash your app. This is because those libraries don't actually exist on the device (ex. ClassNotFoundException).
It's best to keep your ported Android app within a minimum SDK level of 10, and maximum SDK level of 17.

As long as minSdkVersion is >= 10 and <= 17, you should be okay. You're only limiting the devices your app is available to.
The real problem is if you set targetSdkVersion > 17 and use those libraries (as described above).
