RIM announces the Blackberry Z10 and Q10 for new generation hope.

RIM has been struggling to keep its hold on the market with Android and iPhone offering better devices, more apps and a decidedly cooler experience. Their Blackberry handsets could be seen in every executive’s hands but not any more. Research In Motion went back to the drawing board in an attempt to reinvigorate their sluggish sales and their concentrated efforts gave birth to the Android\iPhone clone Z10 and the familiar looking Q10.
The Z10 is a sexy beast of a phone, reminding one of the reborn Motorola RAZR line. It packs 1280 x 768 pixels in a 4.2 inch screen, 2GB of RAM, a dual-core 4470 1.5GHz processor, 16GB of on board storage, LTE, WiFi, NFC, an 8 megapixel backside camera, 2 megapixel front facing camera and is capable of up to 1080p video recording. It’s also the first full touchscreen Blackberry minus the famous keyboard.
Verizon is the only carrier announcing pricing for the Z10 – $200 on a two-year contract. AT&T is sure to announce pricing soon and probably also right at that magical $200 mark. U.K. Blackberry lovers will be able to snag one up tomorrow but U.S. folks will have to wait until March.
Blackberry also wanted to keep the keyboard jockeys happy with their Q10, hit the break for details on that bad boy…
Unlimited Data Plans And The IPhone 5

If you are a Verizon subscriber thinking about upgrading to an iPhone 5 and would like to keep your unlimited data plan it’s going to cost you. Cheers everywhere were heard when Verizon confirmed that if you were grandfathered into an unlimited data plan that FaceTime would be free over cellular connections without having to upgrade to a new shared data plan. That also applies to the new iPhone 5 that is if you are willing to pay full price or $649 or more for Apple’s next smartphone.
No explanation has been offered on this madness but here’s Verizon’s official statement:
If you are an existing customer and want to keep your Nationwide Usage Based plan, you can keep your plan, purchase the iPhone at the discounted price with a 2 yr customer agreement. If you have a Verizon Wireless unlimited data plan, you can pay full price for your iPhone 5 and keep your unlimited data plan.
Only customers who are new to Verizon Wireless will select from Share Everything Plans. Read more: Unlimited Data Plans And The IPhone 5
Verizon blacking out employee vacation days at end of month, iPhone 5 imminent?
Last Updated on Monday, 22 October 2012 06:50 Written by LoganDX Tuesday, 21 August 2012 04:28
The rumors that Apple’s iPhone 5 would be launching on September 21st seem to be right on the money. Verizon has told employees that the time between September 21st and the 30th are off-limits for vacation days. Carrier vacation black outs usually signal the next big release so this definitely fits in with the rumors of the new iPhone launch. AT&T has also put a big black check mark for employees around that same time, theirs however extends farther by also taking away some time in October.
The big question is for anyone who is interested in the new shiny from Apple: are you going to wait in the ridiculous lines at AT&T, Verizon or Sprint or would you rather do your pre-ordering\shopping online and sleep in? I personally would stay away from the madness!
Sprint. Galaxy S III. July 1. Dance time!

So the Sprintified version of Samsung’s Galaxy S III didn’t get the launch it was expecting, with the carrier lacking the supply to meet the demands of the eager customer. First the “Key 29″ markets were able to snag a phone and then some online sales slipped through but a nationwide launch was just beyond the grasp of House Hesse. Now the network has hammered down a final, concrete date for a real launch – July 1st. For $200, you can get a 16GB version in store or online while chipping in an extra $50 can net you folks a 32GB model online only.
Get ready Sprint geeks, your time is rapidly approaching! Any of you ready to get your Galaxy S III on? Hit the comments and sound off!
