    Yes, the PRIV is now officially a legacy device.

    It's been discontinued. Just read an article.

    It wouldn't be that strange, I mean, our device is almost two year old and BlackBerry doesn't produce smartphones by now, that and the 12 month complimentary support ended, Nougat Will be Last update for me

    Provide a link please. Because the only stuff I've seen is just speculation or outdated stuff from 2016 that was obviously false.

    Yes I am looking for the article which google pushed to me.

    Regardless, the Article did say it is no longer for sale on Shopblackberry.

    It's done.

    Now we hope we get nougat.

    If not, I'm getting rid of this phone and going Samsung with their physical keyboard attachment

    It's still for sale in other countries, like the UK. It's just possible that they ran out of current stock.

    Like 200th time I tell someone that Nougat WILL come to Priv, It looks like it Will be Last Major (not patch I guess and hope lol), Priv has Just received 1 Major update, the 18 months of updates hasn't reached their limit so N is in this timeframe, Priv has hardware to mové N on every regard, and move it flawlessly, see LG G4, which has almost the exact specs than Priv, It received N and is fast as hell, so no, we Will receive N, see the Android N for Priv and DTEKS thread, we discussed every plausible way for Priv not getting N, and we ended in same ressult, no plausible way for Priv not getting N

    That still doesn't make it true.

    I am not hopeful for Nougat on the Priv. Fingers crossed on the DTEKs.

    It depends how important the keyboard was on the Priv to him. If it's vital, get the KEYone, but if it's just icing on the cake, the S8 is better.

    If you are going Samsung wait for Sammy to release the 6gb/128gb S8+ and buy it in a heartbeat, add the detachable keyboard and all good to go, updates for the next two years in a super device that Will Last eons

    No surprise, BlackBerry is out of the hardware business. What surprises me is how long some hang on to devices. Technology changes so quick...once the dtek 60 came out I couldn't get rid of my Priv fast enough

    Well, to be totally honest, if you buy Carrier you know what you are doing.... Blame BlackBerry for security updates on your verizon Carrier Priv's is tbh weird, if this is a site of BlackBerry experts (well experts and People with no so much experience) all of us should already know how Carriers hang updates to users, see @goku_vegeta post in our discussion about his G4, he has a Carrier G4 and updates, Just like your Priv, are as slow as hell, Will he blame or has he blamed LG? No, LG has nothing to do with the Carrier being negligent on the updates front

    Too bad; however discontinued doesn't mean "unsupported" or "stops working suddenly".

    I still can't leave this long-discontinued 4 year old Q10 in the drawer, and I hope the same for my Priv. Still a great device, and will probably work fine for several years more.

    It can work easily the next two or three years, maybe will be stuck on N and won't get O, I even consider that Security patches can be cut after N, but well let's see what BlackBerry does in future, I just love the Slider form factor

    While I love my Priv as much as the next person, the idea of N should be taken with a grain of salt. I sure hope we do get it, but I'm not going to hold my breath. And i'd hope its 7.1.1 or 7.1.2 not 7.0 - as there are a number of benefits from the latter revisions.

    Also, the continuous camera app updates are unlikely, I cant remember the last time the camera app was updated.
