Ever since Android stepped into the scene, other platforms (BlackBerry especially) have been having a hard time. But what could be the reason for that?

And now, it seems like RIM is trying to get back to the game with a new BlackBerry Torch being surfaced. It looks very similar to the Torch 9800 but a hardware upgrade is what … [Read more...]
