The BlackBerry Strikes Back

Remember Research In Motion, the producer of BlackBerry that continues to surprise us because it still exists? Yeah, that Research In Motion.  Well, it looks as if the BlackBerry is pushing to make a comeback (again) and it might be for real this time (seriously!).

RIM announced last Wednesday the release of BlackBerry 10 and the two new handsets which will come with it — a phone with the traditional physical QWERTY keyboard and a fully touchscreen version.  So how is RIM going to make a comeback with these devices?  Currently BlackBerry phones are mostly found in a corporate setting, usually as a phone a company issues an employee.  First RIM has to keep these customers, which it has been unfortunately hemmorhaging these past couple of years.  Then they have to bring back customers that have switched over to greener pastures.


The two new BlackBerry models are the all-touchscreen Z10 and the physical keyboard Q10.  The Z10 could really help to bring back customers he left for the likes of the iPhone or Android touchscreen phones.  The Q10 is a definite upgrade to the existing physical keyboard model, which will help BlackBerry to retain that niche market.  BlackBerry is also making a big push to upgrade its app availability but it will be a definite uphill battle to be competitive against the app offerings of i-Devices and Android devices.

One final thing.  BlackBerry dropped the name Research In Motion.  So while I predicted that RIM would no longer exist in the near future, it was BlackBerry that killed off the name.

More Storage?  Yes Please.

Like lots of storage?  Like the Apple iPad?  Well you’re in luck!

Apple announced the addition of a 128GB model to its newest iPad lineup this past Tuesday.  The new storage model will still have all the same specs as existing iPads: dual-core A6X processor, 10 hour battery life, and 2GB RAM.  Of course the 128GB version punches in with a hefty price tag.  The Wi-Fi only model will be offered for $799 and the 4G LTE model will be available for $929.

The larger storage size may not appeal to a large chunk of existing (and potential) iPad users, but there is definitely a market for it.  Professional users, such as photographers, medical professionals, and those in the design field, may see a huge benefit of having the larger storage model.  Those who stockpile movies and games may also find use out of it.

The 128GB iPad will be available next week on Tuesday, February 5.

LG G5 Review In-Depth

Can LG take on the Galaxy S7 with a metal design, dual-cameras and an accessory slot? Here's our first LG G5 review, focusing on LG G5 design and build, LG G5 specs, LG G5 cameras and LG G5 software and apps.
Alongside the Galaxy S7, the LG G5 is one of the biggest phones (not literally) to launch in 2016 – and we're not just talking in the Android world. It's one of the heavyweights and LG will be looking to set the market alight with the G5's alternative and innovative modular design.

Amazon Echo Plus (Second-Gen) Review

The second-gen Amazon Echo Plus is shorter, louder and better-looking than ever. What's not to like? Here's our review.
Should I Buy The Amazon Echo Plus (2nd-gen)?
The new Echo Plus offers a radical redesign compared to the original, ditching the plastic body for a fabric mesh housing that helps the speaker blend into the home environment. It’s not only better-looking either, as a larger speaker and tweeter provide improved audio quality and Dolby Play 360 audio support helps fills the room with music. What’s not to like?

Google Pixel Review

Not everyone wants a phone with a big screen, but most small-screen phones compromise on performance and cameras. Not so with Google’s latest flagship Android phone: Here’s our Google Pixel review.
Joining the ranks of the Pixel C and Chromebook Pixel are Google’s new Pixel phones. We’re reviewing the smaller 5in Pixel here, but you can read our separate Pixel XL review if you’re after a bigger phone.

Oppo RX17 Pro Review: Hands-on

We had time with Oppo’s new RX17 Pro. It may be blue and purple but how different is it to the similar OnePlus 6T and is it worth your time?
Should I Buy The Oppo RX17 Pro?
Oppo has made a solid mid-range phone in the RX17 Pro. Build quality is premium, fast charging is industry-best fast and the display is of high quality.But the price is high at 599€ considering the OnePlus 6T with a better processor starts at £499/€529. And while functioning as it’s supposed to, ColorOS is still unrefined for the western market with far too many changes to Android to recommend over competitors.

Nest Thermostat E Review

The Nest Thermostat E is a no-brainer in the US, but it's a trickier sell in the UK thanks to a price that's much closer to the similar third generation Nest
Should I Buy The Nest Thermostat E?
The Nest E is a great smart thermostat that’s comfortably among the most stylish and easy to use on the market, but as it stands in the UK, there’s not much reason to opt for the E over the existing 3rd gen Nest, which has some extra functionality for a similar price.It's a different story in the US though - a bigger price gap makes the E an easy recommendation if you're in the States.
