Mac App Store hits 10,000 Apps: here’s the best

As the Mac App Store passed 1 year in business earlier this year, so too has the store this month passed the 10,000 applications - with some surprising entries sitting at the top of the charts this week. Some unsurprising entries into each of the three "top" lists on the Mac App Store are Apple-made apps OS X Lion, iPhoto, and Keynote. You'll find several apps you may have never heard of before today as well, especially in the "Top Free" section of the store. This digital app store is distributed with all Mac OS X installs, and takes cues from the iTunes App Store on how the software business is evolving to a click-and-download model as fast as you can say environmentalism.

BlackBerry PlayBook gets fully working PlayStation emulator

BlackBerry PlayBook gets fully working PlayStation emulator

If Angry Birds Space doesn’t satisfy your BlackBerry PlayBook gaming needs, how about original PlayStation games? An enterprising developer on the Crackberry forums has created a PlayStation emulator for the PlayBook, allowing you to play a myriad of 1994 games on the 7-inch tablet. It’s still a work in progress, so some games may fail to load, but hey: it’s PlayStation on your tablet.

HTC One V Review

HTC One V Review

While the HTC One X and One S are hogging the limelight with their mix of raw performance and excellent build quality, there’s One more phone in the series that we need to turn our attention to. The HTC One V won’t impress anybody with its spec sheet, but part of HTC’s 2012 strategy is a renewed focus on not just the mid- and high-end of the market, but also the initial point of entry, the affordable smartphone. That doesn’t mean HTC has neglected the software: Ice Cream Sandwich and Sense 4.0 are on this budget offering just like the big brothers. Does the HTC One V strike a balance between hardware, software, and affordability? Let’s find out.

Nokia Lumia 900 review

Nokia Lumia 900 review

Over the last year Nokia's had something of a tumultuous time in the mobile industry. While still a power to be feared in the featurephone market, their lack of presence in the smartphone market has been keenly felt. With T-Mobile's Lumia 710 as a prelude, the Finnish giant makes a return in earnest with the Lumia 900 on AT&T's LTE network. Its features and design are immediately attractive, but perhaps more so is the price: just $99 on-contract, or free for new AT&T customers. Can a combination of great design, high-end features and price make a bold statement for Nokia? Let's find out.

Right price, spec, buzz… so how will AT&T, Microsoft and Nokia screw up the Lumia 900?

Right price, spec, buzz… so how will AT&T, Microsoft and Nokia screw up the Lumia 900?

Back in January, in the aftermath of Nokia revealing the Lumia 900 Windows Phone flagship, we argued that AT&T should price the smartphone at $100 at the most if it wanted to compete with the iPhone. Today, the carrier confirmed that it would indeed be undercutting most new handsets with a $99.99 price point - albeit with a two-year price plan - ticking off at least one box against the new Lumia's launch. Nonetheless, there are still plenty of pitfalls ahead if AT&T, Nokia and Microsoft don't want it to be game over for Windows Phone.

RIM pushes HTML5 apps amid Canada user exodus

RIM pushes HTML5 apps amid Canada user exodus

RIM has turned to courting HTML5-curious developers as a stopgap solution to slumping BlackBerry sales in Canada and elsewhere, arguing the case for universal webapps to counter coder apathy. BlackBerry marketshare in Canada - not RIM's biggest single market, but meaningful as it is the firm's home turf - has dipped below iPhone levels this week, hand in hand with decreasing levels of developer interest as BlackBerry 10's late 2012 launch looks unpalatably distant. That's prompted a charm offensive by RIM code champions, pushing HTML5 development as preferable to native code.
