SlashGear Weekly Wrap-Up: July 14, 2012

Happy Saturday, everyone. If you’re in a place where the summer heat is bearing down, hopefully you’re in an air-conditioned building just relaxing and catching up on this week’s tech news. To start, get this, there’s actually some good Blackberry news – RIM Blackberry 10 developer support on the rise. And as Nintendo’s new console approaches, so do the third-party comments – Wii U more powerful than 360 and PS3 claims 5th Cell. Also, here’s a look at the final details of Digg’s sale – Digg sale splits the company three ways for $16m.
