    It may well be the last OS before the BB10 launch, seeing as there's just over a month remaining to launch day, but RIM intends to continue support of OS 7 devices after BB10 releases so there may be some other OS updates in the future.

    Greetings, .8xx is in the works, however I am not sure if we'll see it before BB10 launches. From what I heard (tm), a first version was already prepared for december but got delayed due to problems. We'll see if it hits in january.

    In any case, RIM won't drop support for the OS7 devices any time soon. You'll still continue to see new firmwares through the next year. Same goes for native apps like BBM or Twitter. So all people who don't like to board the BB10 ship won't be left in the dark.

    It makes good sense for RIM to continue to support OS 7 devices. I know someone who had a Torch and recently received a 9900 as a replacement device from their carrier. After having it for 2 days she said 'never mind BlackBerry 10, this will do forme - it is fantastic!'. This and my own experience with the 9900 suggests that as soon as the first BlackBerry 10 devices are launched the 9900 will become the bargain of the year as an excellent device with great capabilities, at what will probably be a silly price.

    As in the past, older devices will get less OS support when it comes to updates on OS. The carriers have to pay for these updates and and the money will dry up quickly with the intro of BB10!

    I don't think anyone suggested OS8, but if you want proof RIM continues support for legacy phones.....

    Latest Official OS 5.0.0.1075 for BlackBerry Curve 8900 from Vodacom

    and from the earnings call recently......
    "So just to be very clear, we will not just kind of stop BB7 from being supported. We have a significant R&D team working and continuing to work on BB7. And you just saw us innovating on BB7 as well when we announced the BBM voice capability. So we will maintain BB7. There is a strong success with BB7 devices in the Asia Pac markets. And as you can see on the devices that we’re launching with BB10, you can probably get an idea of in which price points they fit. So no, we will support those on-boarding, entry-level smartphone markets. We will continue to support them with BlackBerry 7, and you might expect us to even build one of the other new product based on BlackBerry 7. Because for those messaging-oriented markets, it’s an exciting platform and its a really perfect platform."
