BlackBerry Z10 vs Nexus 4: pricing is everything

We have already touched on why we love the Nexus 4 so much. If you remember, one of those reasons was pricing, which we think will often play an important role. Stepping outside of the world of Android for a moment and today was a rather big day for BlackBerry. The company announced a pair of smartphones, one of which is the Z10, a full-touchscreen device that will arrive running BlackBerry 10.

Lenovo looking to acquire RIM for Android smartphone push

The PC and laptop manufacturing giant Lenovo has slowly been working their way into the mobile marketplace. While their tablets haven't been a smashing hit, nor have their smartphones, some new products shown off at CES sure were exciting.

BlackBerry Messenger spotted on Android

It's been quite a while since we heard about good old BlackBerry Messenger on Android. The last we heard was that a test app from RIM was over in development over a year ago, and though RIM has grown closer to Android through its Playbook tablet, that doesn't mean they're any fonder. The rumor fell through in the months since. In any case, TechnoBuffalo has got a photo of what looks like BBM running on a Froyo or older device. Someone's trying out the idea, but there are a few warning bells to consider.

BlackBerry Playbook to lose Android side-loading for fear of piracy

Well, so much for that. Just a couple of months after formally introducing the capability to use Android apps on their BlackBerry Plabook tablet, Research In Motion has announced plans to disable the updated OS' capability to install Android apps outside of the BlackBerry App World. AllThingsD reports that the OS 2.1 update will disable the side-loading feature, though RIM is working on a solution for developers to get their apps on tablets. Their reasoning? That good old standby justification for crippling hardware and software: piracy.
