    Hello all, my Z10 is working fine and I don't plan to upgrade my phone unless necessary or if there's good deal on a Z30.

    Anyway, what does it mean for me when BlackBerry has set a date for the "End of life" for the Z10? That probably means no more OS updates but will it have a bigger impact on me?

    It means exactly that....no more planned updates. But if it will impact you? Not as long as your phone works. If you want some "new" features you probably aren't going to be able to get them. But your phone should still work.

    You don't get lifelong support from any manufacturers but as the lady says it won't stop your phone from working..

    BlackBerry hasn't said anything about EOL for any BB10 devices yet and won't for likely another year or two. The OS is still so new and they would **** off a large group of their BB10 customer core if they EOL'd anything. No need to worry.

    EOL means stoppage in manufacturing, no re supply, not stoppage of OS updates.
    Or am I losing it?

    EOL means end of support. No updates, no new devices, nada.

    But while Z10 is no longer manufactured (thanks to the fact that they have a lot in stock), it's not EOL for it yet. Z10 will still get updates.

    In fact, I personally believe they will still update Z10 well into 2016. Z10's hardware is good enough, as long as BlackBerry 10 does not suddenly obtain a new feature that is deeply integrated into the OS but requires ridiculous processing power that only super new devices can bring, it'll still do just fine.

    Z10, Q10, Q5, Z30, Classic, they all sport similar level of processing power. Z30 has quad-core GPU but I don't think it matters much in OS work

    Didn't we read that os 10.4 would be 64bit?
    And that is exactly why all current devices (except passport) will be eol.
    This at the end of 2015

    The Passport still does not have a 64 bit processor.

    I believe the Z10 and Q10 will be supported for quite a while since the Classic which will be launched within a month will have similar internals to the first generation BlackBerry 10 phones. And BlackBerry would have to support the Classic for a while.

    I do not believe that 10.4 would be 64 bit. Even if it does, I believe BlackBerry will still provide support for 32 bit devices, primarily because they still need support relatively new devices such as Passport and Classic.

    I do hope that they'll release a successor to Z10, one with the same form factor and size (but with better speakers!) so I can upgrade if and when they stop supporting Z10, I heard the radical difference between STL 100-1 and its brethren is causing headaches

    I am one of many who believe BlackBerry can exist again, and I have more than Z series and Q series. And when my colleagues ask me why you still use BlackBerry. I said BlackBerry always update their OS for all their devices. Including stl-1, Z3 and all variance. They never leave their user.
    I will use BlackBerry unless they will silo their services based on device.
    Except their VVIP devices had more fiture that logic for me.

    As a side note, most probably if Z10 is phased out (no upgrades, only security updates) , Z30 will also be at same time.
