Back in January i wrote a post where i mentioned that a BlackBerry fan site out of Italy wrote that rumors were BlackBerry would officially declare end of life for BB10 on May 31st 2017. At the time they stressed it was rumor. I did find the date particularly interesting because of WhatsApp. WhatsApp originally was supposed to stop support for BB10 in December 2016. In a twist of sorts, they seemingly had a change of heart and pushed it to June 1st 2017. Coincidence? Things that make you go hmm.. behind closed door conversations perhaps?
Anyway – in a recent post i wrote that i think BlackBerry has #Blackdroid where it wants it or close to it in terms of security.. Well, while listening to the latest UTB blogcast there was mention that in Barcelona, at the unveiling of the KEYone, BlackBerry confirmed that they have Blackdroid basically at the BB10 10.3.3 level of security. How about them bananas??!! There you have it folks… the bells toll…#RIPBB10 i will definitely miss you.
Mark your calendar.. May 31st.. let’s see if that pans out!
