It's no secret that BlackBerry has been in talks with many organizations to get apps onto the BlackBerry 10 platform. Thus far, they've done a great job with what they've announced and there's no signs of that momentum slowing down. With that in mind, it's starting to look like they may have a few unannounced companies onboard as well as witnessed in a video from the official BlackBerry France YouTube channel.

In the video above while demoing the Europe1 app, you can briefly spot Flipboard as one of the icons on the screen before the Europe1 app launches. Realistically, there is nothing stopping Flipboard from running on BlackBerry 10 right now.

In fact, I have it installed as an Android port on my BlackBerry Z10 and it works great but it sure does seem odd that it would be sideloaded and then not removed from an official BlackBerry video unless there was something a little bit further going on here. We'll leave it at that I guess since there is no official details. Thanks, @Skinofino!

I don't even know what it is lol

I was told by an insider that it does something really different. I just can't remember what it was. Doesn't matter, I miss not ever having this app in the first place.

Koolthug

Its a must have app for magazine readers. I actually like the way it looks on iphone and android. So it would be a nice addition to BlackBerry World!^^

Alan973

I love flipboard! plz hurry up to BB10~

Flipboard would be a nice addition to Blackberry World.

I've used it on iOS and it's quite a handy news reader.

MoolahMitch

It doesnt matter to me since its so easy to sideload, been using it on my PlayBook for a long time.

pmich

this is by far my favourite iOS app..so i'm desperate to get this on Blackberry

CrackFachry

Flipboard, is one of the apps I want from BB10. It's THE best magazine style reader IMO.

Exciting news. Flipboard is one of the apps I use on a daily basis. I can't really imagine my phone without it. Now if they can just get Kayak and Starbucks I am really set. More importantly they need to turn the tide and show significant opt in from those companies that seem to be holding out. This would be welcome news indeed.

Mr Gill

One of my favourite apps so I am really excited for this one.

ip.amps

is it a native app or android?

jlarkins08

This is my favorite app on my iPad... I can't believe it's coming to blackberry. BB10 is making my world right now! Can't wait to get the Z10

Innerchild

Love FlipBoard! Have in on my Note II. Would love to see it on my future Z10!

roxshana

I am so excited bb10 is finally here,can't wait to finally buy one:)

greatwiseone

Hopefully it's not a sideload and that it's really coming. Flipboard's android port works perfectly great on the dev alpha and so it should work perfectly on the Z10 too.
