    Maybe, but as with Nokia, it's simply far too little, far too late.

    Not quite sure what you're on about here. iOS can run all sorts of
    emulators, except Apple doesn't allow most of them.

    What Blackberry needs now is a major miracle ... Apple going bust might
    just do it, but that's "unlikely". It's just another dead duck joining
    the likes of Nokia, Commodore, etc. in the history books.

    the only reason they did that is because developers aren't writing
    native apps for blackberry (which is a pain even if there was a reason
    to bother).

    that means that blackberry *must* run android apps or it would be
    totally useless.

    it's also a stupid move long term. why would someone buy a blackberry
    and run android apps when they can buy a real android device and run
    android apps (and more of them too).
    developers aren't all that interested in windows phone, why would they
    give a shit about blackberry?

    it's dead.

    And he's right. Now, if he'd practise what he preaches....
    No, they have not. They have written their own applciation for other
    platforms. Messenger is still just as close and I, for example, cannot
    create a client application to enable BB Messenger to be access by apps
    running on, say, the Amiga.

    Spoken like a stock holder.
    Largely because if their attitude over the last 7 years and their
    complete reliance that sticking their head in the sand would prevent
    iPhones from destroying their market share. Arrogance and stupidity are
    being rewarded appropriately.

    Meanwhile, they have given away their one asset (security) to numerous
