    Back in my early days of "smartphonery", I went with Android and my brother went with BlackBerry - the one with the rollerball. You know which one I'm talking about. Today, the rollerball is gone and the latest and greatest is the BlackBerry Passport. "Hey Joe, you haven't used a BlackBerry in a long time, let's see how ...

    One of the very cool things about big expos like MWC is how they expose us to so many different kinds of devices all at once. Sure, the bulk of them are likely to be running Android, but we're sure to see products based on any number of mobile platforms, from Ubuntu, to Firefox OS, and more. For all the OS diversity the ...

    Google may head up a major smartphone platform, develop self-driving cars, and even have a fleet internet-connected high-altitude balloons, but at its core this is still a company that sells ads. Whether those are on its search engine, or popping-up while we watch YouTube, ads are the company's bread and butter. Today ...

    Do you BYOD? And no, we don't mean buying an unsubsidized phone from a third-party retailer and separately activating it on a carrier – we're talking about using your own phone for work, rather than carrying an employer-issued device.

    Over the past several weeks, there's been no shortage of renders attempting to reveal Samsung's Galaxy S6, from designs put together by case-makers, to works from independent artists.
