Subject RE: (CB-1823) BlackBerry updates to the docs
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 20:15:58 GMT
While we would certainly love to see every BlackBerry user upgrade to BlackBerry 10 in the
first two weeks, it seems like there will be a definite transition period.  I would think
we will still see significant subscriber numbers on BBOS devices for a while.  I would think
you will continue to see demand for BBOS builds.

Subject: (CB-1823) BlackBerry updates to the docs

I am starting to lean towards this person's opinion. Combining all the
BlackBerry platforms into one is starting to become heavy.

Clearly RIM is not looking to support BB 5, 6 and 7 moving forward.
Everything coming from RIM is 100% focused on BB 10.

At what point should we consider sunsetting support for the older BB OS
revisions? We are already talking about removing iOS 4.3 support; why not
open dialogue for doing something similar on BB?
