Thorsten Heins believes Blackberry 10 has a shot at being the number three platform on the market
At the moment it wouldn’t be wrong to say that both iOS and Android are currently dominating the smartphone platform market.

Blackberry service outage equals more woe for RIM
Research In Motion (RIM) is not exactly doing that great at this point in time, shrinking market share and all that, but Murphy is certainly having a fun time with RIM as there is word that Blackberry users have been hit by a service outage this morning. Considering how it is less than a year after there was a Blackberry network outage, it can be rather infuriating for Blackberry users. […]

Fan-made "Blackberry Love" commercial is certainly attention grabbing, but might not be entirely appropriate [NSFW]
While advertisements might not necessarily get you to buy the product, it puts the product and/or the company into your mind, thus creating awareness. While we’re not sure if this is how RIM might want to market themselves and their Blackberry devices, a fan has put together a commercial that well, will most certainly have no problems grabbing the attention of many. Called “Blackberry Love”, it is a very suggestive […]

This is why we are interested to see how Blackberry 10 will handle BBM and if there will be more functionality […]

Another Blackberry 10 L-series photo has leaked online
Another day, another Blackberry 10 L-series leak – alright perhaps not, but it looks like another L-series photo has been leaked. Unfortunately these leaks still show serial numbers on them which could suggest that they are merely test units and might not be the final design, but based on what we’ve seen, if these are merely test units, we can only imagine that the final version should look pretty good.

While the focus might be on Android and iOS at the moment, let’s not forget that as far as smartphones are concerned, RIM’s Blackberry devices used to reign supreme. However lately the company has taken quite a bit of hits, although many are hoping that the upcoming Blackberry 10 OS and its accompanying devices will be amazing enough for RIM to regain some market share.
