Does the Blackberry Passport's touch-enabled physical keyboard make it worth your attentio...

The device is aimed squarely at the business market, and while it seems unlikely that it’ll be a huge commercial success, it’s easily the most interesting handset we’ve seen from the company in some time.  Read More

The Passport is one of the more unusual smartphones we've seen in recent years

BlackBerry’s Passport smartphone, which features an unusual large square-shaped display, was met with notable confusion when it was quietly announced during an earnings conference last month. The handset seems to be suffering from an identity crisis – caught between the company’s traditional keyboard-toting smartphones and the larger-screened tablet form-factor. BlackBerry is clearly aware of the issue, and has stepped in to explain why we should be excited about the product’s unusual design.  Read More

So how do you sort through it all? Look no further, as Gizmag breaks down the top smartphones of (early) 2013.  Read More

We compare the specs (and intangibles) of the BlackBerry Z10 and Samsung Galaxy S3

Great companies evolve. In 2007, Apple redefined the smartphone with the release of the iPhone. Google then responded quickly with the iPhone-inspired Android OS. But BlackBerry (known then as Research in Motion) stood still. Six years later, the company is finally embracing keyboardless, multitouch handsets. Does the new BlackBerry Z10 stand a chance against Samsung’s record-breaking Galaxy S III? Let’s see how their specs – and harder-to-define intangibles – compare.  Read More

How does the BlackBerry Z10 compare to the iPhone 5?

Pre-2007, “BlackBerry” was practically synonymous with “smartphone.” Then the iPhone came along ... then Android came along ... and eventually “Blackberry” became synonymous with an inability to adapt. Now, in 2013, the company is finally doing something new. Does its first serious multitouch handset, the BlackBerry Z10, have what it takes to take on the iPhone 5? Let’s see how their specs – and harder-to-define intangibles – compare.  Read More

Will the BlackBerry Z10 be enough to revive the struggling company?

“Better late than never.” We’ve all uttered the phrase at some point. But, in the ultra-fast-moving smartphone market – where last year’s model is considered a relic – “late” is practically synonymous with “dead.” Will that hold true for BlackBerry? Or does the Canadian company have a glimmer of hope? We’ll soon find out.  Read More
