  • BlackBerry Makes It Official, Jelly Bean 4.2.2 Runtime Coming To BlackBerry 10.2.1


    Some will say BlackBerry planned on announcing this right now the whole time, but the latest leaks did not help BlackBerry keep this a secret! Alas, they have officially announced today that the Android 4.2.2 runtime will be making its debut on BlackBerry 10.2.1. A lot of changes, and improvements are coming, and that will make Android apps for us, the end users, a lot more fluid.

    Check out the improvements:

    • Android Native Support: Android apps that use shared libraries written in native-code, such as C and C++, will now be supported on BlackBerry 10. Support is limited to the recommended system headers and APIs as documented by Google. Headers and APIs outside this scope may not function correctly.
    • Bluetooth: Android applications using Android Bluetooth APIs will now work on BlackBerry 10. Bluetooth Low Energy for Android is planned to be supported in a future OS release. As a reminder, Bluetooth LE is supported in the BlackBerry 10 Native/Cascades SDK.
    • MapView v1: Applications that use MapView from Google Maps v1 API are now supported using OpenStreetMaps. Support for MapView v2 API is being planned for a future release.
    • Share Framework: Android applications that register with the share framework in Android will now also appear as share targets on the BlackBerry 10 share menu.
    • Spellcheck: Applications that use text input can now leverage support for spell checking and correction, and the ability to add words to the BlackBerry 10 dictionary.
