Blackberry is trying to enter into the Android since couple of years. Blackberry Priv is an example of the same policy of moving to Android.
Blackberry Director has said that company is making every effort to fold in Android to its turf. He said for Blackberry, “future is really Android.”
Speaking to ET, Damian Tay, senior director of APAC product management at BlackBerry, said, “The PRIV device is essentially our transition to Android ecosystem. As we secure Android, over a period of time, we would not have two platforms, and may have only Android as a platform [for smartphones].”
Earlier, in the first week of the January Blackberry executive stated “Only Android id the platform.”
So here is one more confirmation of Android being taken as major OS for development in Blackberry.
