BlackBerry OS 10.2.1 has been released. The biggest new feature is much better support for Android applications - you no longer have to convert APK files into BAR files, and can install them as-is. BlackBerry details the other, smaller improvements as well.

I still have yet to see any BlackBerry 10 device, which makes me sad - I'd love to see what it's all about.

BB10 has had some major updates in the last year since it was first available. Each has brought notable improvements and additions. It's a bit of a laundry list this time, but a notable one is the increased support for Android apps. There's an app called Snap which, after being sideloaded, can download and install Android apps from Google Play. I've done this and filled a few gaps in the app lineup. Would be nice to have them native, but I'll take what I can get.

Funnily, I've seen numerous BB10 devices in my area in the last several months. Heck, I've even seen a few people using Playbooks! I still use mine!
