Life after BlackBerry?

How's the preparation guys?

After 8 Long years of support for personal use, end is near. Three of my previous companies migrated RIM to Apple for corporate phone. Looks like iPhone transition for me soon....

for me, is a strange but familiar scenario

used nokia e71, switched to android qwerty due to proliferation of android apps, switched to bb as android manufacturers stopped making qwerty phones

so have been using a 2 device solution [1 bb, 1 android]

will stick to this for the foreseeable future; even if for example whatsapp pulls the plug, we can still use the android apk

if really cannot use required apps reliably, most likely switch to a touchscreen phone with active stylus, mitigate problems of a touchscreen keyboard

Unlikely. They will probably sell away the hardware business.

i don't really mind a qwerty BB running android but not a slider. That's the reason why i bought passport instead of Priv.
