Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
A recent upgrade to its developer tools has reduced the amount of work required to get an Android app working on the BlackBerry 10 operating system, and changes coming in early 2014 will allow some Android apps to run directly without any changes.
BlackBerry 10 is based on a real-time operating system called QNX but has had a level of compatibility with Android since it was launched earlier this year. A "runtime" on the phones provides an environment in which Android apps can run, but not all Android features are supported.
