- One great era is coming to an end
- BlackBerry ends up supporting all of its phones
- Only newer Android devices will remain fully functional
The iPhone is definitely the most popular phone today. However, this was not the case around 2000 and at that time there were not many better devices on the market than phones from the Canadian company BlackBerry. Although these original models have long been out there, the company has given them software support. But that will soon be over.
BlackBerry terminates support
BlackBerry announcedthat with the support of its older phones will end on January 4, 2022. It will hit devices with operating systems BlackBerry 7.1 OS and older, BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry PlayBook OS 2. This means that the company will virtually end support for all its older models that were created before its transition to Android. BB mobile phones with Android will not be affected by this decision and their support will not end.
BlackBerry fell asleep on his laurels
Twenty or so years ago, it looked great on BlackBerry. Their phones had an excellent reputation and more or less became a symbol for devices used in business. In 2007, however, the iPhone came and changed the mobile world so significantly that the Canadian icon did not have time to react in time.
She tried it with fully touch phones, but unfortunately they didn’t work and the BlackBerry 10 system, which was very successful but overlooked by the developers, was to blame.
Back up as long as you can
So if you use some of the older phones with the blueberry logo on your back, you better back up your data quickly and switch to the new device. After January 4, 2022, they will no longer function reliably, as far as all major functions such as calls or messages are concerned. If you want to stay with the same brand, you will find it difficult, because it is almost impossible to buy BB with Android.
