I've ordered a Q10 some days ago and hope I won't regret it.

BB10 has an Android compatibility layer, so that might bring over some apps that might be still lacking.

the problem is that to encourage native app development, they've made it needlessly difficult to get those Android apps over. Either they have to convince the developer to convert the .apk to a BB10 .bar file and submit to BlackBerry World, or the use has to find an .apk (a legal gray area and logistical hassle) and sideload it to the device through a process that involves no official BlackBerry tools.

I own a Q10 and I love it. Really, I didn't think that it could be so good, but now I couldn't switch to android back. of course i't just MHO.
