    We talked about the BlackBerry Messenger news a little while ago, but that's just scraping the surface of what's happened today. BlackBerry Live is underway, and the festivities are serving as the point of origin for a host of other BlackBerry announcements. Let's take a look at some of the bigger stories to emerge, concerning both new hardware and new software. First up is the announcement of the BlackBerry Q5. This is the phone we'd been following as the R10, but it gets a proper name as it goes official. Frankly, the new moniker makes a large deal of sense, as the Q5 is clearly a ...

    We got a really nice look at an unannounced BlackBerry 10 QWERTY model earlier this week, apparently set to arrive as the R10. Seeing it go up against the Q10 made it crystal clear that the R10 isn't quite as refined nor sophisticated-looking, befitting its apparent fate as a budget-priced alternative to the Q10. At the time, we also got to check out some hardware specs for the phone. Now, we're heading back to correct one of those figures, upon the arrival of some new evidence of BlackBerry R10 hardware. By and large, the R10's hardware didn't sound so much worse than the Q10's, but there ...

    At Pocketnow, we have a responsibility to try the new, the fresh, and the weird - and that latter swamp is exactly the one Managing Editor Anton D. Nagy waded into with his recent review of the ASUS Fonepad - the tablet with an earpiece. Or the phone with a tablet screen. Whatever you want to call it, we've covered it - and Tony has some thoughts about using a seven-inch smartphone in this edition of one of your favorite tech podcasts. After we clear the giant-phone convo, we've got more to say. Lots more. And, doubtless to the relief of thousands, very little of it involves Samsung's ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about Windows Phone 8 GDR2 and a a possible release date along with some billboards that show us what the Nokia Lumia 928 is all about. Then we move to HTC as the red HTC One shows itself in the UK, along with the fact that HTC has improved in sales this month when compared to last month. Then we go through the BlackBerry R10 being compared the Q10, just to make your choice for either much easier since the R10 is just ugly. Later we go through the leaks of a mysterious LG phone we assume to be the Optimus G2, and then we talk about the reports that ...

    Last week brought us a fresh look at a not-yet-announced BlackBerry 10 model, the hardware QWERTY-packing R10. This wasn't the first time we saw that guy pop up, and from what we know about it, it was sounding like it could be a future budget-priced alternative to the higher-end Q10. Just what kind of cuts could BlackBerry make to bring the price down? We get somewhat of an idea today, upon a leak delivering not just some new BlackBerry R10 pics next to a Q10, but a run-down on the model's specs. Make no mistake, even if the R10 is to be a cheaper option than the Q10, it could still have ...

    Watch today's Pocketnow Daily as we talk about the Acer Iconia A1 and why it's a device you should consider. Then we talk about the Motorola X Phone, which was recently spotted on AT&T in some tests, and is most likely another ugly phone. Later we move to Nokia as we see the Lumia 928 camera being tested and being quite good. We then move tot he BlackBerry R10, which was also leaked in photos as more of a mid-tiered device. We end today's show talking about Google Games, or the probability that Google is really bringing a Game console in the future that also runs some proprietary ...

    The latest BlackBerry on everybody's minds is no doubt the Q10, eager to see what a classic BlackBerry design and that hardware QWERTY keyboard can do to drive interest in the new platform. The Q10 isn't the only device we've seen rocking that form factor, and some rumors and leaks have supported the idea that the BlackBerry R10 could eventually arrive as the budget alternative for BB 10 fans who still want a hardware keyboard. Today we get another look at the handset, this time in bold red. While the general layout matches the Q10, it doesn't take long to notice where the R10 is distinct; ...

    After the recent leaks of the BlackBerry roadmap for 2013, we did notice that aside from the Q10 that should be released at the beginning of Q2, we should also receive an R10 some time in the fall. Sadly, even though we thought the R-Series was going to be bigger and better than the Q-Series, some leaked photos prove otherwise. Apparently these photos are of the BlackBerry R10, and by the looks of it, there's no additional premium here to what you'll get on the Q10. On the contrary, this looks to be more of the BlackBerry Curve successor, which was always more of a budget-minded device ...
