New End-of-Life Listing Puts BlackBerry PlayBook and EVO View 4G on the Chopping Block
Parting is such sweet sorrow, but in the world of mobile technology it’s out with the old and in with the new. Our beloved Super Spies have blessed us with an updated End-of-Life (EOL) report and a couple of new players are ready to have their jerseys retired. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the term EOL, it’s a listing for devices that are on their way out in an effort to make room for new hardware.
This means that shipments of the listed equipment will begin to wind down and eventually be completely phased out. If you happen to own one of the ill-fated devices and are in need of replacement, you may possibly receive a slight upgrade if there aren’t any replacement units available. This updated listing shows that both the BlackBerry PlayBook and HTC EVO View 4G are on their way to the Island of Misfit Toys around the end of this month. With two tablets showing up, we’re hoping that this could mean an LTE-powered slab in the not so distant future. However we know we’re most likely looking at another four to five months at best.
