BlackBerry is struggling to gain much traction against its rivals but interest in its device continues be strong, especially among business readers, with our head-to-head review of the Q10 and mid-range Q5 proving highly popular last week.
Meanwhile, another firm struggling in the mobile space, Microsoft, was forced to provide a dedicated iOS app for its Outlook client for Apple devices such as the iPad and iPhone in order to allow users of these products to access their emails on a specific app.
Microsoft is hoping its Windows Phone 8 software will pick up and rival Android and Apple soon, and devices such as the 41MP Nokia Lumia 1020 will be just what it needs to tempt people away from market favourites, the iPhone 5 and Samsung Galaxy S4.
So it's no surprise that our three-way competition between the devices was among the most popular stories of the week.
In other news poor security practices at a recruitment firm led to over 7,500 CVs being accessible to all and sundry online, in just one of the many security stories that made the headlines.
