One thing Android’s architecture won’t support is true “evolution.” BlackBerry 10 operating system and even apps could behave differently depending on how you’re connected and your location.

“It’s one of the benefits of actually owning the stack [QNX]. You’re basically able to change anything in the stack to globally optimize when you have a hard problem to solve, which is something that iOS can do but Android is limited in what they can change,” said Sebastien Marineau, the senior vice president of BlackBerry OS, in an interview with TechRadar.

“They [Android] can’t really change Linux that much; and they get standard drivers from vendors and it’s difficult for them to change them. If you look at where they’re innovating, they’re innovating in the Java layer at the top but they’re constrained in what they can do lower down the stack.”

The BlackBerry 10 operating system could adapt by automatically showing country specific information for each location you travel. The apps you download could even partake in the transition. Can you imagine the endless possibilities of BlackBerry 10?
