The biggest hit to Microsoft and Windows Phone lately has been Google dropping support for Exchange ActiveSync, the whole base of Microsoft’s awesome social integration with your Google account. We knew existing users wouldn’t have any issues, but it would cause havoc for new users, and most likely existing users who set up a new […]

BB Z10′s Camera No Match For the Mighty 920

BB Z10′s Camera No Match For the Mighty 920

| January 31, 2013 | 72 Replies

Both Gizmodo and Crackberry went ahead and pitched the spanking brand new BBZ10 against the Lumia 920 (and the iphone/S3). Unsurprisingly the 920 was the clear victor; I just never expected the Z10′s camera to be this bad; but once again the 920 has impressed me, now if only I could get Poritco on it. […]

Video: BlackBerry Z10 vs. Lumia 920

Here’s a hands on video pitting the newly launched Blackberry Z10 against the Lumia 920. Interestingly although the Z10 has a smaller screen size (4.3″ vs. 4.5″) they appear almost the same size, even-though the Z10 is completely buttonless; I guess that’s the price you pay for symmetry in a phone.
