BlackBerry 10 to support Android 4.1 Jelly Bean apps

BlackBerry is showing an improvement by implementing various ideas which seem to be developed by the heavy criticism they’ve faced in the past. Their latest OS; Blackberry 10 is reported to have an Android app emulator (sort of) which will let users to run third-party apps developed for Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

Thorston Heins, CEO of BlackBerry had announced and confirmed this news on a conference call two weeks ago. Added to this, the latest version of Android Tools are also available for download on the official BlackBerry website. These tools let the Android developers convert their applications for BlackBerry 10 based devices with relative ease.

It is not yet confirmed (and also likely) that not all the applications on Google Play Store will be available for BB10 as the developers will have to go a few steps more on developing it for the BB10 platform. Although BlackBerry has not given a specific time-frame to the developers, this action is certainly going to be good news for BlackBerry users, who would be moving to the new devices.

This bit sounds like good news for developers as well as end-users who are interested in the new BlackBerry 10 OS.
