It's because Blackberry have included the Android Java runtime within the OS http://developer.blackberry.com/andr...droid_Apps.pdf
Technically it may be possible for MS to do this but it would take a lot of work to integrate it with the Windows Phone framework (and Windows Phones may not have enough memory). But doing so would be seen more of a sign that WP has failed.

Because Microsoft hasn't expended the effort to create a runtime for Android apps on Windows Phone (and likely never weill).. Blackberry went through the effort of creating this and they use some similar technologies (Java), perhaps it wasn't as difficult as it would be for Windows Phone.
