It is true that the glorious Blackberry days are grinding down to an end. That time when Blackberry was the ID card of the mighty and true love was when you get your crush the blackberry bold series. Brethren you still remember right? When Blackberry BBM was the internet fraternity of the happening people.
Fast forward to today, Blackberry has lost a great deal of that aura. The likes of the passport and the rest are fading into the background. And to rub salt on Blackberry’s wounds, WhatsApp announced that they were discontinuing support for Blackberry this 2016. For most of us, this was the straw that broke the camel’s back. Not having WhatsApp was our sure eviction notice from Blackberry patronage. But it seems we have been given a period of grace and mercy as WhatsApp is changing its plans a bit.
When you look quickly to the FAQ section on the website of WhatsApp, you see that support for BlackBerry 10 and BlackBerry OS has been mercifully shifted to June 30, 2017.
Also among the other platforms getting this brief amnesty, include Symbian S60 as well as Nokia S40. Other platforms though such as Android 2.2 and Android 2.1, and even the Windows Phone 7, as well as iPhone 3GS/iOS 6 – will be packed off losing official WhatsApp support.
Thanks for mercy!
