SlashGear Evening Wrap-Up: March 23, 2012

Happy Friday, everyone. We made it through another work week. Hopefully you’re enjoying your spring so far. And even though everyone would rather be spending time outside, there are people still making news in the tech world – specifically, the news that T-Mobile had to layoff nearly 2000 employees is causing AT&T to blame the FCC over its failed merger deal. Speaking of AT&T, it’s surely getting ready for the iPhone 5, which we are hearing will have a 4.6-inch Retina Display. That would be pretty baller.

Featured: The name of the game for Philip Berne’s recent feature article is unusual company profiles – Sqoot and Skedaddle. Speaking on unusual, is it weird if you’d rather have an Android tablet than an iPad? Not at all, and here are three examples to prove it. After all, when it comes to Apple fanboys, you know how they can get. Chris Burns tackles that subject in his column, Perfection is demanded of the new iPad.

Best Buy, Blackberry, and Mountain Lion (oh my): So in the realm of other tech news today, it’s been revealed that Best Buy is now nearly matching Apple in iPhone sales. On the subject of sales, that’s really what Blackberry needs right now, and RIM hopes this will help achieve that – RIM promises new Blackberry prototype in May. And finally, here’s something you may have been wondering about – Mountain Lion Retina graphics tip high-red Macbooks incoming. Well, that’s all for now. Keep it tuned to SlashGear and have a great weekend.
