Default Can you actually install Android on BB?

Please Login to Remove!

Just curious. Not that I would do that, but...

Nope. Only the BB OS will work on a BB.

First, you would need a BlackBerry that accepted an alternate OS, and RIM is not about to do that.

Second, you'd need a version of Android written specifically for the BlackBerry device. Who is going to write that when A- you can't even use it, and B- only about 5 or 6 people would want it? You'd give up all the apps that make a BlackBerry a BlackBerry. Folks who bought BlackBerrys did so because they wanted the BlackBerry OS. There's always a few people who would do it "because they can", but only a handful.

Android has been a lot slower rolling out than I expected. I wonder if it's a little too open for cell service provider's tastes?

Android with a BB keyboard plus a touchscreen would be a nice combo.

It will have taken the hardware makers time to get used to android, if you look at htc now they have dealt with early issues they are bringing out a lot more models and other companies who weren't as eager are starting to bring out their first models now the early issues have been dealt with by them.
