I'm a java developer, but I have heard that we can't use Java to develope application on BB10, is that right ? If yes, why BB10 doesn't suppport for Java development. ?

"you can use Andriod"
I'm still flabbergasted about this one.
I don't know whose hairball this is, but they'd better cough it up.
Whatever. We are porting our BBOS app to Android and if we can get a way with it running on the Android player, we will just going to leave like that and slowly port it to native BBX.
This Android player thing will attract a lot of useless apps from current Android market. It is a catch 22 issue for RIM. If they don't go this route, it will take a long long time for apps to build up for BBX.

I guess that the point I was trying to make is this: there are already "usefull" apps for Blackberry, written by companies and individuals who invested in the future of the BB ecosystem by creating these apps.
So why would you tell these developers "what you guys did was worthless", yet provide a player for Android apps, developed by folks with no investment in the BB ecosystem. Not to mention the damage to the confidence of consumers who purchased BB Java apps.
I think that from my perspective, the message to developers is clear (intentional or not): "go forth and write apps for iOS and Android". Why would we trust you a second time?
Likewise the message to consumers: "if you were looking for a chance to ditch your BB, this is it, because you have to go buy all of your apps again anyway".

No doubt that the best route is to support BBOS app by using a BBOS player instead of Android player. However, by going with an android player, rim kind of push all the legal liability to google and gain many ready to use apps at the same time.
