They choose to support BlackBerry 10 and Windows 8 platforms becasuse they are the most future proof.The piece is worth giving a read, and you can find it here
Some memorable quotes are

We’re actively investing brainpower in both WP8 & BB 10 today. We’re already scoping native BB10 apps for clients in Europe, in fact at this point BlackBerry 10 is ahead of Windows Phone in terms of the demand for apps we’re getting.
