As much as BlackBerry can boast to you that their new operating system can run Android apps, that’s not necessarily a good thing. One of our biggest disappointments after our review of the BlackBerry Z10 is that these apps are all locked to Android 2.3 Gingerbread, and that means that you’re stuck running anything that was optimized for an operating system that was launched three years ago. Luckily the company has just announced that this is about to get a major change with BlackBerry 10.2.

Within the changes that are planned for their new upgrade, Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean apps will be fully supported. A beta release of the new BlackBerry Runtime for Android Apps and Plug-in for Android Development Tools was made available to developers, and even though we haven’t seen it yet in action, it does bring a lot more credibility to the future of the BlackBerry platform. The only sad news here is that BlackBerry 10.2 is slated for the usual “later this year” dates that we’re hearing recently. Stay tuned as we keep you posted on its development.
