At least Blackberry does security right. They're not looking to sell your personal information to advertisers yet.

If BB can offer a front end shell for android apps and google play, while still maintaining all the background security of their regular OS, I can see a future for BB other than being a lucrative patent portfolio.

I have a Z10 still through work since they insisted on only providing only Blackberry at the time. They've since loosened the rules but I see no major reason to go through the hassle of switching. It's good enough for my uses and BB10 has been able to run android apps for quite a while now and does it well enough. You can install Google Play with a little effort but Blackbery now uses Amazon to provide the storefront. I'm not sure what it does for security to install Android apps, I very quickly noticed that most Android apps want way more access to your phone than most of the native BB10 ones.
