Subject (CB-1823) BlackBerry updates to the docs
Date Wed, 07 Nov 2012 19:50:24 GMT
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?
