Just read on RoadMap that the Android Runtime is going to be upgraded to Jelly Bean 4.1 from Android Gingerbread 2.3.3. The goal is to support all current features and APIs available on the Android Runtime platform today as well as evaluate new features and APIs for inclusion.
Why didn't BlackBerry just install Android OS on BlackBerry hardware, create a BBM app for Android & sell? & I bet that would do much better than the BlackBerry 10 OS.

from scratch, developing for BB10 vs android is much easier, they're only upgrading the runtime so that newer versions of android apps (skype) will run perfectly on BB10 as gingerbread versions already do without the devs needing to create a brand new app for the platform
Why swat one fly when you can get 2 in the same blow

Additionally, since BlackBerry is not Samsung, they would sell 0 android devices.

My question here is what differentiator does BB 10 os have? Why wasted so much money to create a brand new os with no differentiator? and is Android Runtime the only way left to survive?
