All end-of-life (EOL) and replacement plans are inherently tentative. If manufacturing is delayed, so is the new product introduction and the announcement of its availability. If unit sales of the current product do not meet our forecast, then we keep selling it longer than initially planned (and so on).
The purpose of this document is to describe the timing and other attributes required for end-of-life planning for the product(s) listed above. This document is not about the new product—it is only about the product that has reached its EOL. Thus, the pricing, features, specifications, competitive position, etc. of the new product are not addressed here except as needed. Similarly, information about the new product launch plan, including marketing materials, press release timing, etc., are not addressed here except as needed. Information about the new product line and the launch plan will be provided separately.
