The Canadian Smartphone maker, BlackBerry Inc. has reportedly begun approaching the Android apps and games developers about getting their native Android applications directly onto their BlackBerry World app marketplace for the BlackBerry users.

Apparently, it is confirmed that the next BlackBerry firmware update is going to support the native Android APK files directly into BlackBerry smart phones, and then porting them over might require a very little work from the app developers, according to the site “Good e-Reader”.

The famous digital publishing news site has recently reported that its representatives has spoken with at least four of the famous Android app developers at the International CES 2014 who have confirmed that the BlackBerry Inc. had approached them about the publishing of their applications directly to the BlackBerry 10 device.

These application developers need to do absolutely nothing more than to make a BlackBerry World profile and then submit icons, some app screenshots, and the app descriptions for their existing Android applications to appear in the BlackBerry 10 device application ecosystem.

It is not just about some developers – the BlackBerry 10 users will be reportedly able to download these famous applications directly to their beloved devices, just like, they were like other normal BB10 apps. These fortunate devices are said to include the BlackBerry Z10, Q5, Q10 and the Z30 devices.
