Top 10 most read: Nokia and BlackBerry reviews, Apple iOS woes

18 Feb 2013

With Mobile World Congress (MWC) just around the corner it's perhaps no surprise that mobile stories were of most interest to V3 readers last week, with reviews of new devices proving popular.

Top of the pile was our review of the excellent Lumia 620 from Nokia that secured a solid four out five stars as it offers all the business benefits of the excellent Windows Phone 8 operating system but at a price point that would appeal to anyone.

Also popular was our video review of the Q10 smartphone from BlackBerry, while our hands on video of the Z10 was also well read.

Elsewhere, security issues caught the eye in the form of a zero-day attack on Adobe's PDF format. Vodafone also had to warn customers with the Apple iPhone 4S not to update to the new iOS 6.1 software update due to issues with network connectivity.

Finally, the return of the Kelihos botnet was of interest, as was Microsoft's acknowledgment of its return, as the battle against cyber criminals continues to rage.
