BlackBerry, once a giant in smartphone world, has seen their sales plummet since the emergence of Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS. BlackBerry tried to make a comeback with a revamped BlackBerry 10 OS but it didn’t attract much attention. This was mostly due to far less number of apps that were available for BlackBerry devices.
BlackBerry are working on their newest 10.2.1 OS and a leaked image shows Google Play Store running on BlackBerry 10.2.1. This is renewed attempt by BlackBerry to increase their market share after making BBM available for Android and iOS platforms.
These are just leaked images and the news hasn’t been confirmed as of yet. A CrackBerry forum poster shared these images without any comments or proof of authenticity.
According to rumors, a new Android Runtime is expected to be included in the next build of Blackberry 10, which will allow the Google Play Store to be available to BlackBerry users to download and install Android applications and other content to their devices. This means thousands of new applications will be available for the BlackBerry users.
If the rumors turn out to be true then it will be a huge step forward for BlackBerry.
