While messing around with a leaked BlackBerry 10.2 OS build (version 10.2.0.663) on his BlackBerry Q10, the developer stumbled upon some of the newly supported Android apps, one of which was the not-so-well-received Facebook Home launcher. We aren't that excited.
The upcoming BlackBerry 10.2 OS update for all BlackBerry 10 platform based devices (this includes the Z10, Q10 and Q5) will bring in support for Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean apps on the BlackBerry 10 phones. The Q10 owner was not only able to easily run Facebook Home launcher, but also side-load other Android apps and run them with ease. This spells major relief to BlackBerry's new platform, which hasn't been posting magical sales numbers or scoring great reviews either. Let's see if Facebook tries to partner with BlackBerry for a Facebook Berry (phone).
