That's about to change with the release of 10.2 this September. It supports Android 4.2.2 APIs, and runs them pretty well.

Do they support an Android app store? Do they need to be sideloaded?

Android apps need to be packaged into a .BAR file (simple tool) and signed with a BlackBerry signing key so it can be submitted to BlackBerry World. There is no Google Play, or Amazon App Store, or any other Android-specific app store.

If you don't want to submit to BlackBerry World, you would need to sideload the app. You still need to sign it with a BlackBerry key.

Applications are open for YC Winter 2018
