BlackBerry recently revealed that they had hit 100,000 applications on their BlackBerry 10 app store, which led to speculation that a lot of these 100,000 apps were actually ported from Android.
BlackBerry has now revealed some figures on just exactly how many of their 100,000 apps have been ported from Android, one in five apps on BlackBerry 10 are Android ports.
“We give them a very nice on-ramp to get onto the platform,” Mallick said in an interview Tuesday. “Our users deserve to have great content. If that is the fastest way we can get some of that content, that’s great.”
This means that out of the 100,000 apps, 20,000 have been ported over from Android, the other 80,000 are apps which have been specifically designed for the blackberry 10 platform.
