    How long do u guys think blackberry q10 will be supported in terms of software. I believe it won't get major update in the future. Though BlackBerry classic is having a similar hardware

    It's too early to start worrying about that. They're definitely gonna keep going with it for a long time.

    BlackBerry Z30 STA100-2 |

    Probably has a while left. It's already been two years.

    If it were Apple, they would have intentionally made the 2 year old phone laggy with an "update".

    If it were any Android manufacturer, they would have dropped the phone update completely after two years.

    If it were Windows Phone, they would have released am update that discriminates between new and old phones, with old phones getting the updates with missing features (Nokia 1020).

    In that sense, I think BlackBerry is doing pretty well with the update.

    They do not discriminate between older phones and newer phones in terms of os functionality. The Z10 and Q10 phones are as smooth as the first day, which cannot be said for most phones.

    I'd say it will be supported as long as the Classic will be. They have pretty much the same guts so it would make sense.

    I've had this thing since launch in the U.S. and mine is faster than ever on 10.3.1. I've gone back to 10.2 a few times and am always surprised by the slower speed.

    I guess what I'm saying is that the hardware of the Q10 is more than keeping up with the software releases, and I can't imagine they would stop supporting it until it could no longer handle the OS. Look at how long they've continued supporting Legacy devices.

    I like to "think" that technological innovation is vertical but is sometimes "just" linear. Vertical is sometimes an illusion. Linear is variation on previous existing product or work. Newer is not always better. Still enjoy Q10.

    BlackBerry would be suicidal if they stopped including Q10 in updates.
