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.

BlackBerry Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)Apple’s $50 Billion Buyback Won’t Dent its War Chest (Forbes)

This buyback — due for completion by the end of 2015 — combined with a bump in the dividend, increases the amount of cash Apple is “returning to shareholders” to $100 billion.

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.
