Google Play Store heading to struggling BB10?

BB10 runs Android’s 4.2 Jelly Bean build, but BlackBerry has its own dedicated app store for your purchasing needs. Now rumours are popping up that the Android’s own app portal, the Google Play Store, will be coming to the company’s OS.

Alleged leaked photos have popped up online, showing the Android storefront running on a BlackBerry Z10 (seen below). It’s very possible that the entire thing has been photoshopped, but it’s possible that it’s the real deal too.

It wouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, given BB10 and its compatible handsets struggling to keep up with the current market. We all know that BlackBerry itself is having some pretty dire financial issues right now. Perhaps this move could ever so slightly help it out a little.
