Just a couple of weeks ago, we all waited and forgot about BBM reaching iOS and Android, since first of all it didn’t happen, and second, it’s not like if we had any buddies left in the platform. The company has gained and lost buyers in the last couple of weeks, and it all seemed like if the cross-platform BBM project was silently abandoned in favor of securing an economic future.
All the drama came to an end two days ago, or at least part of it, as the app was finally launched on both iOS and Android at the same time, and if you thought that people didn’t [...]
It’s amazing how, a little over three years ago, nobody cared about tablets. They had existed for almost 8 years, and still, they were either too pricey, or simply not powerful enough to justify their purchase. Fast-forward to today, and it’s amazing that all it would take was to bloat a smartphone to make people want them.

Tomorrow we expect more iPads to be announced, and unless Apple hasn’t caught up with the recent reviews of Google’s Nexus 7, there’s [...]
Watch our Top 5 predictions for what to expect on Apple’s October 22nd event, where the most probable theme is iPad.

Some interesting news have just happened, as the US Patent office has decided to uphold the patent No. 7,479,949 after pretty much invalidating it in December of 2012. Why is this important? Well if we all remember the Apple vs Samsung trial, among other lawsuits that included Palm and HTC, Apple has actually won cases against Samsung because of this particular patent, and it has been key in banning Samsung products years ago.
This patent focuses on the iPhone’s capability to ignore unintended swipes while you scroll from top to bottom or left to right. You’ll notice [...]

Pocketnow Daily gets an average of 300 to 500 comments a day, and sometimes even a thousand.
