With the slew of new handsets arriving hitting Canadian soil – Sony Xperia ZL, BlackBerry Z10 BlackBerry Q10, Samsung Galaxy S 4, and the HTC One – it’s time for a few one-time flagships to be given their usual “End of Life” notifications. We’ve already seen the Pebble Blue Galaxy SIII say sayonara, but now Rogers has axed the HTC One X, Samsung Galaxy SII LTE, Samsung Galaxy Note, Sony Xperia T (Bond Phone), HTC Desire C, LG Optimus L& and the entry-level BlackBerry Curve 9360.
Clearing these smartphones off the shelves does make room for more powerful and desirable devices. The good news for those EOL devices is that the carriers and manufacturers have committed to update the OS, so it’s not completely over. Of course, it’s only a matter of time until the new launched handsets face the same reality. Technology is moving faster now than ever.
