A new OS would soon be launched and it enables downloading any and every app in android platform directly with having to sideload. you can get as many apps as you want by sideloading or be patient and await the new OS!
This phone is great!! Ask questions if you have any difficulty getting around the phone people!
I must say this phone it's 5 stars in hardware but disapointing on the software side. Beying my first blackberry device I can't help saying and even typing (from it right now) about how good it's keyboard is and how happy and fast you feel pressing those well-known BlackBerry trademark keys. Even though isn't very atractive and well designed (like 9900 Bold or Q10) it's a pleasure using and feel it in the hands. Going back to the keyboard part, you feel in control when you type something and touching a real keyboard let's you even write without looking at it :) You cannot replace that with any virtual keyboard in the world! As for the software experience, well...you will miss some apps. The biggest minus on the BlackBerry is the lack of apps. You bearly find whatsapp, FB or google maps (on other sites, emulated on the device running like on an android phone) So, if you can live with a phone that has a good keyboard, a plus with the BlackBerry Hub, call quality and signal but not a huge amount of apps (not that I'm a fan of play google market) you will find that this is quite a good device, doing the daily task at the best, but DOES NOT KILL your time or wasting it with no needed apps like android or apple. You realy don't need 3-4 apps that does the same thing, right? :) Hope this was useful! A.C. from Romania
