Information about RIM’s first QNX smartphone, codenamed the BlackBerry Colt, have been leaked. The Colt is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2012.

Google threw a wrench in everyone's expectations when it announced that the Chrome OS wouldn't be widely available to install on just any machine. Unlike Windows 7, which can be installed on pretty much any x86-based machine, Chrome OS will be customized for a specific set of hardware components that Google deems fit. It's an interesting approach, but like Apple, it appears that Google wishes to have some control over the hardware that its operating system runs on. Google has informed us that a number of netbooks will be Chrome OS-approved, so to speak, but up until now we have had no information... Read more...
