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. According to reports the smartphone will be retailing for $249, which is about $50 more than Apple’s iPhone 5.

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.

Robart decided the appropriate payment was about $1.8 million. Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT) welcomed the outcome.
