The rumor mill had been at work again, the last few days, when they seemed to suggest that the Google Play Store will arrive on BlackBerry 10.2 update. However, BlackBerry have responded to those rumors on the Crackberry forums, clearly stating that this is not the case. There seemed to be multiple leaked screenshots of BlackBerry 10.2 running what seemed to be the Google Play Store, integrated within the BlackBerry OS.

"There is no planned support for Google Play on BlackBerry. BlackBerry World remains the primary source for trusted and curated BlackBerry applications and we continue to support open standards and open source tools so BlackBerry developers can continue to create great apps on any of the development platforms we support."

It is clear that the leaked shots aren’t an indicator of the future, at least the near future. While it would obviously be nice to get another window for apps on a BlackBerry device, anyone wanting Android apps still need to take the side-loading route.
