Flickr users and BlackBerry abusers need to find a new combination to swoon over. New text found inside a help article on RIM’s website points to an EOL date of March 1st, 2011 for Flickr For BlackBerry. After said date, users who want to upload pictures to Flickr will have to make use of the popular photo sharing site’s mobile web space. Considering that there aren’t really any noteworthy 3rd party replacements, BlackBerry users are going to find it a little more cumbersome to share the most favorite pictures with friends and family.
Anyone think it’s odd for RIM — A company who is constantly pushing their more consumer friendly image — to up and drop Flickr like that? Or is the lack of 98xx support and infrequent updates the real reason behind its death?
