RIM CEO: We’re not in a death spiral

After a disastrous earnings call that revealed that BlackBerry 10 would be delayed to the first quarter of next year, and the announcement that 5,000 further jobs would be cut from the company, things definitely weren’t look good for RIM. The current CEO, Thorsten Heins, has taken to the airwaves to say that there’s absolutely nothing wrong with the company, and that it isn’t “in a death spiral.”

Samsung Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5: pre-release battle

Samsung Galaxy S III vs iPhone 5: pre-release battle

The next-generation iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III will be the two biggest and baddest smartphones on the market this summer. There's no denying that. Unless you're HTC and you've got the HTC One series with the HTC One X on AT&T and the HTC One S on T-Mobile, then you've got something to back up your claim that you've got anything to say to either Samsung or Apple. Thusly here is my challenge to you, Apple and Samsung - I dare you to make a more perfectly tuned smartphone than HTC has offered up here at the start of 2012. I dare you to take this game to the next level.

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.

Nokia World 2011: Crunchtime

Nokia World 2011: Crunchtime

It's been quite the month for mobile, and it's not over yet: Nokia is still yet to take the stage, following Apple and Google's respective plays for smartphone dominance. Next week sees Nokia World 2011 arrive in London, UK, an opportunity for the Finnish company to prove it's not only still alive and kicking, but relevant in an increasingly competitive and fast-moving segment. Competitive is not a word you'd use to describe Nokia's line-up over the past 12-18 months, but a close partnership with Microsoft promises to change all that. Read on to find out what to expect, and why 2011 could well be the most important year for Nokia since it gave up making rubber boots.

Police push face recognition in anti-rioter campaign, but DIY effort shutters

Attempts to use facial recognition technology to identify looters involved in the UK riots last week have proved mixed, with security forces pushing forward with the software while an unofficial project has shut down due to inaccuracy of matches. The official software - being tested for the 2012 Olympics, among other events - is being used to identify potential suspects yet to be detained, the UK police told CBSNews; however, a Face-based app that might have allowed Facebook users to flag up those responsible has been axed.
