Why You May Consider Disposing Your BlackBerry Phone Before 2016 Ends

By Adetula David

If you say Mark Zuckerberg, the owner of Facebook has placed Blackberry on a time-bomb of irrelevance, you may not be totally far from the truth though no one knows the last card Blackberry has in stock to play to salvage its ‘dignity’.

During the first quarter of this year (2016), it was announced that WhatsApp and Facebook will no longer support Blackberry Operating System (OS), including Blackberry 10. WhatsApp was the first to cut support in an official announcement on February 26 this year. According to a Release commemorating WhatsApp seventh year anniversary, it saw the need to develop with the fast developing interface of mobile devices, hence, the need for WhatsApp to look ahead to the next seven years and focus more on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use.

“As we look ahead to our next seven years, we want to focus our efforts on the mobile platforms the vast majority of people use. So, by the end of 2016, we will be ending support for WhatsApp Messenger on the following mobile platforms: BlackBerry, including BlackBerry 10, Nokia S40, Nokia Symbian S60, Android 2.1 (Éclair) and Android 2.2 (Froyo) as well as Windows Phone 7.1” the Release stated.

The simple reason given for this is that the future expansion of the app’s features cannot be contained by the capabilities of those devices.

Just about a month later, Facebook also announced that it will also drop support for BlackBerry making it almost hard for any person willing to manage the first straw think twice and deeply. With this, it means BlackBerry users will have to use the mobile version of the website to log on the social network.

In a reaction to the development, one of BlackBerry’s officials said it is extremely disappointed with Facebook’s decision to discontinue support for its app. Even as the WhatsApp support to BlackBerry and the above listed platforms is billed to end by 2016, no specific period has been stated for the Facebook support to end, though there are insights that both supports may be terminated at the same time.

For BlackBerry users, we do hope that you will find this development manageable else you may consider disposing your BB phones before the value drastically drops by 2016 end.
