BlackBerry has now offered some shortcuts in order to get programmes running on Z10. The Canadian company has come up with an emulation engine that allows Android apps to run. According to Martyn Mallick, BlackBerry’s vice president for global alliances and business development, roughly 20 percent of BlackBerry 10 apps are android based.

Some of the developers were planning to port their Android apps but it seems that they are now committing to a native app. While the future of Blackberry 10 looks promising, some of the leading app developers like Netflix and Instagram still needs to announce their apps.

Malilick seems to be very confident about the future, “Overall we’re excited by what we are seeing in the marketplace, we have a high level of confidence we will continue to see more of the application partners come on board,” he said.
