Blackberry's CEO Says The iPhone Is Outdated

With the launch of the last-chance Z10 around the corner, Blackberry is giving itself a pep talk to keep those hopes high. According to CEO Thorsten Heins, the iPhone is hardly in the race Blackberry’s fixin’ to win, because it’s old news.


BlackBerry Z10 Review: Not Good Enough

Everybody knows what’s at stake for BlackBerry. The Z10 is its shot to stop its considerable bleeding and shut everyone up. But launching a brand new OS with brand new hardware isn’t easy. And it’s even harder to match expectations when both have been delayed again and again.


BlackBerry Is Updating Its Android Emulator

In 2011, BlackBerry introduced something it thought would be a killer feature: an Android emulator. It was called the App Player and the reason it wasn’t hugely popular is that it only ran a limited selection of features and only supported Android 2.3 apps. Now, though, BlackBerry has seen the error of its ways, and issued a pledge to improve the App Player with the help of Android 4.1.


BlackBerry's Best Trick: Nailing Work-Life Balance

Today BlackBerry demoed what it’s calling BlackBerry Balance, a clever way of separating one’s personal and work lives in one device. You don’t see it as much these days but carrying two phones — one for business, one for pleasure — was commonplace not too long ago.

Stupid Things People Did To Get A Free BlackBerry 10

Look, I know the BlackBerry Z10 looks great, but I just can’t believe that some of you are doing these stupid things to get one for free.


What RIM Needs To Prove With BlackBerry 10

RIM’s day of reckoning is almost here. Tomorrow, the once-mighty Canadian company will officially unveil its new BlackBerry 10 operating system, along with new hardware. It’s a chance at rebirth, reinvention, and getting out from under its walking corpse reputation. But for that to happen, RIM needs to prove it’s back on the right track.


Sorry Apple, The BlackBerry Z10 Is Hotter Than The iPhone

I’ve always hated BlackBerry phones. Disgracefully ugly bricks they were — until the BlackBerry Z10. The BlackBerry Z10 is hot. Truly beautiful, elegant hardware. If the OS is as nice as it seemed at CES, I will totally snatch one up.
