BlackBerry will continue to support OS 10, but future is uncertain

BlackBerry plans to outsource the development of smartphones powered by OS 10, but its engineers will continue to work on the software part. John Chen, the company's CEO, confirmed a while ago that BlackBerry is very careful about choosing its partners...

And you'd still be wrong, because BlackBerry released the Classic, Leap, PRIV and DTEK50 after that Passport. Nice try, though.

The Priv is a flagship android device, not a BB10 device. Not my fault if you don't want to face the facts.

Cut the BS. You weren't referring to any OS, and you certainly were not even thinking about "flagship" until Subie mentioned it. You just leached off of his response to and are now trying to pass if off as something you meant.

How the fck are you going to tell me what I meant? I think I can read my comment just fine without your commentary.

Lmao! Nerve touched, deep in your gut because I called you out on your lying BS. Here's that aloe and cool, damp cloth I've been saving for you for your severe case of bumburn.

Is that what you use when Bobby gets too rough with you? Would explain your fascination with cool, damp cloth and aloe.

And if you're just referring to BB10 devices, you'd STILL be wrong, since the Classic and the Leap both came out after the Passport.

My point still stands.

The point that you don't know about BB10 in general, or the devices that it runs on? Yep, that point definitely stands.

You're just butthurt because BB10 is dead. Get over it and stop embarrassing yourself.

You're just bumburned because Apple releases the shtiest software of all the mobile OS's, needing update after update to fix what the previous one has broken. Get over it and stop embarrassing yourself.

Nevertheless, BB is the one that DEAD, not Apple iOS.

The sheer stupidity of your comment is mind-boggling. How could they be dead if they're still in business?

120. Mxyzptlk unregistered

Right, because Android and blackberry have never released software updates to fix bugs.

Nowhere near as much as Apple does. What good are speedy updates if you have to keep releasing updates to fix your shtty software, only to find out that the updates keep breaking the phone?

Great to see that BlackBerry is still committed to supporting BB10. It's a great OS. Eager to see if there will be any OEM's will license BB10 from BlackBerry to put on their hardware.

If there were a phone company want to use BB10, their CEO must be fired.

Saying it twice won't make it any more true.

It's been clear for a whole that Blackberry stopped supporting BB10. The OS isn't even getting updates every 6 months at this point. I had to get rid of my passport because bugs were popping up everywhere and no updates to resolve them. They are good phones but don't look around funny when youre browser starts having problems loading

BB10 hasn't gotten an update in a while, true, but 10.3.3 will be released very soon now. Getting the entire OS certifies for NIAP by a third party has taken more time than usual. http://crackberry.com/where-blackberry-os-1033?utm_medium=slider&utm_campaign=navigation&utm_source=cb

Blablabla, Really??? Then why BB 10 is dead?

Why isn't your trolling dead?

You will be trolled by meanesttroll for telling the truth, especially claiming there's a bug/problem.

You just trolled me in your response to him, so you have no credibility when it comes to saying others will troll, especially since you're just spewing BS at that.
