Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) To Soon Start Selling Its Q10 Smartphone (Market News Call)
Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) will soon start selling its new QWERTY keyboard-based Q10 in the U.S., where it is expected to make its appearance by the end of May.

So would it be surprising to learn that by the end of what CEO Tim Cook called a “record” buyback, Apple will almost certainly have even more cash than it does today? And given that, does it mean there’s still more to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s long-term strategic plan that remains a secret for now?

Microsoft gets upper hand in first Google patent trial (Reuters UK)
Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) came out on top in the first of two patent trials versus Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s Motorola Mobility unit on Thursday, as a federal judge in Seattle ruled largely in its favor. U.S. District Judge James Robart in Seattle said Microsoft owed only a fraction of the royalties Motorola had claimed for use of its technology in Microsoft’s Xbox console. Motorola had sought as much as $4 billion a year for use of its so-called standard, essential wireless and video patents, while Microsoft argued its rival deserved about $1 million a year. Robart decided the appropriate payment was about $1.8 million. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) welcomed the outcome.
