- V3 Apps
The interest in new BlackBerry devices from V3 readers shows no signs of abating, which will no doubt please the folks at the Canadian firm, as our reviews and comparison pieces on its new devices remain popular.
Top of the pile was our head-to-head showdown between the new Z10 device and its key rivals the Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5, as we put it through its paces on some key, basic tasks such as sending emails, loading web pages and taking photos.
Elsewhere, major developments dominated the headlines, with Dell's confirmation that it's set to go private in a staggering $24bn deal grabbing the attention.
The move should help the embattled PC maker continue its strategy of moving into new areas, like the datacentre, free from investor pressures.
Finally, Microsoft landed a telling blow on the cyber criminal fraternity, with the help of Symantec, when it smashed the Batimal botnet that had affected thousands of PCs across the world. The Redmond giant has promised more campaigns against botnet crooks too.
