The Blackberry Q10 Delivers As Mike Lazaridis Reflects (Forbes)
I first met Mike Lazaridis, the retired co-CEO and founder of Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY), in 1991 when I was a rogue marketing manager at Ericsson desperately searching for wireless email software to marry with the world’s first portable wireless data modem, which we were preparing to launch that next year. Cell phones were analog back then, with no capacity for text messaging much less a data channel. Ericsson was intent on chasing taxi dispatchers and utility service vehicles, but those of us who came of age with the PC industry knew that the liberating ingredient missing from laptop and palmtop computers was mobile data capability.


Apple’s iOS 7 Buys Time With Ideas Borrowed From Other Mobile Platforms (eWeek)
The latest features finding their way into iOS 7 have been collected from elsewhere in the mobile industry revealing little that’s new, except that the ideas are new to Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL). Several people have written about Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL)’s new iOS 7 interface as being something like Microsoft Corporation (NASDAQ:MSFT)’s Windows Phone 8, with the flat, simplified icons being similar to the tiles on Windows. But they’re not. The new iOS 7 screen looks more like the BlackBerry Z10. As with the new Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY) devices, the latest new version of iOS has icons that don’t have the defined edge that looks vaguely raised.

Research In Motion Ltd (BBRY): T-Mobile Drops The (10.1) Bomb (iStockAnalyst)
This morning T MOBILE US INC (NYSE:TMUS) dropped the Research In Motion Ltd (NASDAQ:BBRY)’s Z-10 10.1 “official” upgrade. As I’ve noted I’ve been running this release for a while through “unofficial” leaks and deliberately loading non-US firmware versions. For those who haven’t been willing to do that, this is what you will wake up to this morning. One of the welcome changes is an HDR mode in the camera application. I’ve used this for a while and it makes a dramatic difference in situations where its use is appropriate. In particular it does amazingly well in poorly-light but high-contrast situations indoors, eliminating the conundrum of having to either blow out highlights or lost shadow detail.
