blackberry desktop software support lifecycle

I have found some good info on the support lifecycle for the BES releases... but there is nothing that shows the support lifecycle and end of life for the blackberry - what is it?

Re: blackberry desktop software support lifecycle

Blackberry makes a product called Blackberry Desktop Software for PC.

 

For the various historical versions, there is a release date and then an expected support lifecycle for the product.  for the past versions when do they typically end support for a version of this application?  Is there a standard duration?

3. I really don't know, see #1 above. My recollection is.. that when DS 7.0 was released, all previous versions were removed from the download site, but I 'think' DS v6 was still actually supported.
