BlackBerry 10 phones get the Amazon Appstore in the US

If you're a BlackBerry-toting American, you're about to get a ton of Android apps on your plate. As promised, BlackBerry has started the US rollout of an update that gives all BB10 devices access to the Amazon Appstore, saving you from having to sideload some of the Android titles you can't live without. You'll also get better anti-theft protection and a "fresh look" that includes faster access to common tasks.

Just when you get your upgrade is a bit of a toss-up. On AT&T, you're first in line if you're carrying the older BlackBerry Q10 or Z10; on T-Mobile and Verizon, you're at the start of the queue if you're rocking a BlackBerry Classic. Every other BlackBerry 10 device in the country will receive the new software eventually, though, so don't worry if your Z30 isn't part of the initial wave.
