some news/rumors to OS10:

BlackBerry confirms no new BlackBerry 10 devices planned
This to "full commitment"...
What do you say?

Stating the obvious. However, I expect a clarification blog post is being worked up or some sort of 'official' announcement lol. As we know from the past, comments from one person can be taken out of context, even when coming from higher ups.
*cough* BBM servers being moved to Indonesia *cough*.

Yeah it already been posted.... Need some others that were at that "briefing" to expound upon this announcement.
Who said it?
What were the exact words said?
Kinda surprised to hear that "officially". Even though unofficially it's been implement for almost two years now.

I know many here expected Chen to save the hardware company and return it to the greatness of many, many years ago. Not sure Chen ever had a plan to do that, as it was WAY too late in the Fall of 2013 to accomplish that. If would have required the support of 3rd party developers, and by that time most had written off BlackBerry.... and anyone without several 100 million users.

But there is little doubt they have internally "ended" BB10, and someone speaking at a TCL launch event might have overstepped what they could say about it.. without the quote and context, maybe they were speaking only in relation to the TCL Licensing deal?
But the thing here is - how will they attract developers for this platform anymore?
I'm sure applications will fade away with "no future" for hardware in sight.
The "WhatsApp-Story" surely is just the beginning. I don't see any reason why developers would invest time and money anymore.
@Bla1ze : So whats up with a new Crackberry app for OS10?

genuinely EOL it like they have so many other products, it's just lingering info. I wish they would serve a real notice.
"We have that untouchable secure OS that delivers military, government, bank & bla, bla security standards".
As long as Google is behind Android - it's out of BlackBerry's control to deliver that level of security and more important: privacy!
Even BlackBerry can't tell if Google has access to all sensitive information / emails on that device!
From that point of view it's questionable if Android-Berry is the right choice for Enterprises.
And no new OS10 hardware really means it's dead - not officially, but yeah not alive.
That kills all hopes for it's future!
I'm mean, OS10 devices are still great, but they are on the same (chip) level as the Samsung Galaxy S3... I mean...

Let's face it: he must have come to BBRY with a mission to convert it to Android since day one, if right from the start he did what he did to BB10 OS development and suppressed any hardware upgrades.
Remind yourselves how in just 2013 alone the OS progressed from 10.0 to 10.1 to 10.2 to 10.2.1, and 10.3 was already in the works, and how then it just died (it took ~3 years to progress from 10.3.1 to 10.3.3)
And let's not forget that he came already in November 2013, while the first BB10 phone, the Z10, came out only in the beginning of 2013. So the platform did not have even just ONE YEAR to spread its wings before it got suppressed.
Sad but true.
Stephen Elop's twin, just more smart and cunning.
