BlackBerry 10 Officially launches – Z10 and Q10 flagship devices

BlackBerry today announced details via multiple live global events about the new iteration of their blackBerry platform - BlackBerry 10. RIM or BlackBerry as they are now official known set out to "Re-design. Re-engineer. Re-invent" their mobile operating system and platform and they have largely succeeded in breathing new life into the company many have written off as dead. All eyes are now on BlackBerry who I feel have closed the gap in the features, technology, and design brackets. I don't think they have won over many of the Apple fanboys or Android geeks but they may have succeeded in impressing shaky BlackBerry users who were close to switching and die-hard BlackBerry fans feeling left in the dust by sleeker, cooler more powerful phones. BlackBerry is in a 3rd place battle with Wi...

Google now has a Nexus Family of devices powered by Android

Its been five years since Android came unto the mobile OS scene and what a transformation it has gone though in the past couple years. From a clunky, buggy, not very user-friendly platform to a super smooth, feature rich mobile operating system able to run on a variety of devices. It is my believe that Android has finally matured with the release of the Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 coupled with the Google Play Store and partnerships Google forged with Samsung, Asus and LG. The foundation has been laid and going forward Android will only get better and better. Google Nexus Family A Nexus device is much more than simply a phone or tablet. It’s your connection to the best of Google—all of your stuff and entertainment, everywhere you go with no hassle.  Now you have three new Nexus devi...
