Chen retweets “BlackBerry 10 just needs Google Play”

In the wake of the “BlackDroid” saga (which started a week or two ago, when Reuters claimed BlackBerry were making a device running an Android OS), BlackBerry aficionados have taken to social media to making their feelings on the subject clear.

Today, things took an unexpected turn when BlackBerry CEO John Chen retweeted a message from one BlackBerry fan:


This marks the first response (of any kind) from BlackBerry on the story since it first broke, and while it could be argued that it was the result of a slip of the finger (a Retweet instead of a Favourite, for example), there are those who will see this as BlackBerry’s CEO showing his agreement (and support) to the ‘die-hard’ fans out there.
