    There was some discussion of that possibility back in April/May: http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...idberry-71334/

    Source code is out now, so it is possible. A developer would need to port the Dalvik Zygote, port all of the Dalvik standard libraries (WebKit, SQLite, OpenGL ES, etc.), and make the relevant links to the BlackBerry API. Android is written in C, however, so that makes the porting process much more complicated.
