Next BlackBerry OS Update Will Feature App Support for Android 4.2.2

by Reads (1,935)

Android 4.2.2 Jelly BeanThe lack of apps in the BlackBerry World may soon become an irrelevant factor once BlackBerry 10.2 is released later this year, or at least that’s what the company seems to be hoping.

BlackBerry recently announced that BlackBerry 10.2, the latest update to its BB10 operating system, will support Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean, which will grant its users access to the latest Android applications. The previous version of BlackBerry 10 only supported apps that run on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) or earlier.

Developers already have access to a beta release of the new BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps and Plug-in for Android Development Tools, but the commercial release of BlackBerry 10.2 isn’t expected to be available to consumers until later this year.
