Is there a chance HTC will license BB10? Maybe.

by: Andrew GrushSeptember 11, 2012
In order to try and crawl out of the huge financial hole it's creating for itself, RIM recently announced a new strategy: it will attempt to license out its QNX-based OS to other phone companies and even automotive and computer developers. At the same time, RIM said they would still make their own line of BB10-based Blackberries. The talks about licensing soon lead to speculation that Samsung might be interesting in buying or licensing out the BB10 OS for future products, which Samsung quickly shot down. So Sammy might not be interested in licensing, but HTC might.

Kaspersky Labs warns new wave of ZitMo Android attacks might be imminent

by: Andrew GrushAugust 8, 2012

Adding to the list, security researchers at Kaspersky Labs have discovered five new samples of ZeuS-in-the-Mobile (ZitMo) malware, adding to their discovery in June of a fake Android security software that was truly ZitMo in disguise. For those that don’t know, ZitMo is a pesky Trojan virus designed [...]

In the aim of keeping up with the times, RIM had actually considered making the switch to Android.

In an interview with The Telegraph, RIM’s new CEO Thorsten Heins admitted that the Canadian company could not keep up with Apple and Samsung, given their market dominance in the smartphone and tablet business. He pointed out that RIM did not have “the economy of scale to compete [...]

Media consumption differs according to platform, a study by the Reynolds Journalism Institute has found. This is also influenced by demographics, including age, education and earning capacity. In the recently-released 2012 RJI Mobile Media News Consumption Survey, researchers have determined that Apple iPhone users are generally older, better-educated and earn higher than those using Android. This may account for Apple’s market dominance over Android since the beginning.

RJI’s Roger Fidler has found that — surprise! — iOS and Android are the leading [...]
