Report: RIM Down To One BlackBerry 10 Handset

RIM’s last great hope, the QNX-based BlackBerry 10 handsets that would pull the company out of its Playbook-inspired funk? According to the latest rumour from BGR, you’d better make that “handset”. Because there’s only one left. And it’d better be good.

BlackBerry's BBM Music Is The Dumbest Music Service Ever

RIM probably heard that one of the big things in tech right now is offering a music locker service because they just announced BBM Music. Too bad it’s the worst music locker service in the world: you pay $US5 a month for 50 songs.


Next-Gen BlackBerrys Might Run Android Apps

Like the Playbook tablet, which will eventually run Android apps in an emulator, Bloomberg says RIM apparently plans to enable the same functionality in their upcoming QNX phones. Lacking a bit of faith in your developer community are you now, RIM?


Does The World Need A BlackBerry Music-Streaming Service?

Look, we get it RIM–your BBM service is great. But a music-streaming service that runs in BBM? WTF? CNet heard from sources that they’ve signed papers with one of the four big music labels already.
