    If you're a Windows Phone user chances are that your preferred cloud storage service is Microsoft's own offering, SkyDrive (now called OneDrive).

The phone might be available in some markets outside of the US, but we're now seeing a leak which suggests Verizon is getting ready to add the latest from Canada to its line-up. Aside from the Verizon branding on the front, as well as on the back -- where it is accompanied by the carrier's obligatory 4G LTE callout -- we're not seeing any differences in terms of aspect from its unbranded sibling. Those waiting for the Verizon BlackBerry Z30 should expect a phone that packs a ...

    We've put the HTC One through its paces, comparing it against nearly every smartphone -or at least, nearly every flagship- in the modern landscape, but there was a straggler left behind: the tenacious BlackBerry Z10. Today, we set about to rectify that omission. Tune in to the video below to watch us compare HTC's newest -and almost certainly best- Android offering with the slab of black soft-touch that BlackBerry has bet the company on. We'll be comparing build quality, UI, test notes, the camera, and the all-important ecosystem in this showdown, though not necessarily in that order - and ...

    There will always be speculation whenever official sales numbers are lacking and, whether there is a place or not for a fourth player in the game, BlackBerry seems to enjoy a great reaction on the market.

    Whether the new BlackBerry Z10 is selling well or not is, at the moment, anyone's guess, but there are a lot of rumors concerning the availability dates for US carriers, especially AT&T. We recently heard speculation hinting towards March 15 but, as usual, there's always a new rumor with conflicting information. Bloomberg has it on good authority that the day to mark in your calendars is March 22 if you're looking for the Canadian company's latest and greatest. The date is not yet confirmed and originates from "two people familiar with the plan" while AT&T's statement sheds no ...

    Fifty-five percent is what Research in Motion’s US Market share was in 2009 -- the number differs depending on the source, but nonetheless above 50% -- and if you compare that with the below-five-percent figures (going as low as 1.4%) for December 2012, you’ll immediately recognize a monumental drop. Of course, key players like Android and Apple’s iOS contributed to RIM’s decrease, both platforms stealing the majority of BlackBerry users over time. Research in Motion’s recent history is quite agitated but the company that once ruled the mobile corporate world, becoming “just ...
