Contrary to reports made earlier in January by BlackBerry’s CEO John Chen, who stated that the company will not be abandoning the BB 10 software for Android. Rather they will still develop BB 10 for those consumers that want tighter security, which the BB10 operating system provides.
“The PRIV device is essentially our transition to Android ecosystem. As we secure Android, over a period of time, we would not have two platforms, and may have only Android as a platform [for smartphones],” “But for now, we have BB10 and Android platforms for our smartphones.”
This statement suggests that the Canadian based company plans to stick Android and probably do away with BB 10 operating system in no distant future.
