BlackBerry announced on Thursday that you can now preorder the BlackBerry Classic, the throwback device that the company hopes will reel in some longtime users who have either gone to rival platforms or who are still using older BlackBerry devices.

The dirty secret Apple and Google don’t want you to know about iOS 8 and Lollipop

Apple and Google love accusing one another of being copycats but the dirty truth is that both companies have been swiping ideas and features from one another for years. This has become even more obvious with the releases of iOS 8 and Android 5.0 Lollipop, which this in-depth review of both platforms by Dice’s Nick Kolakowski makes clear are more similar than ever before.

Here are the features that iPhone fans would love to see Apple steal from Android

Here are the features that iPhone fans would love to see Apple steal from Android

The great thing about the fierce rivalry between iOS and Android is that both platforms learn things from each other. For instance, Google has learned a lot about good overall design from Apple, while Apple has learned the value in opening up some parts of iOS — most recently its keyboard functionality — to third-party modifications.

iPhone 6 Vs. Android Sales

Apple’s new iPhones may not be stealing as many Android users as we expected

Apple’s new iPhones may not be stealing as many Android users as we expected

The conventional wisdom after the release of the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus was that Apple would steal back some market share from Android as Android users who love owning big phones would flock to the new devices. However, Consumer Intelligence Research Partners (CIRP) has shared some new research with us that suggests that the bigger new iPhones aren’t picking off quite as many Android users as we thought they would.

Verizon Net Neutrality Lawsuit

Verizon’s greed may have finally gone too far

Verizon’s greed may have finally gone too far

Verizon was probably pretty happy with itself after it got the Federal Communications Commission’s previous net neutrality rules tossed out in a court ruling from earlier this year. However, it looks like this may have only been a short-term victory because now the FCC might implement even stricter rules on ISPs, including on wireless carriers that were previously exempt from most net neutrality regulations.

You can get Lollipop on one of 2014′s best Android phones right now

It’s a happy day for Motorola fans as the company has just announced that three of its newest devices are being updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop this week, including the “Pure Edition” of one of the year’s best smartphones, the 2014 version of the Moto X. The Pure Edition is the version of the device that runs on stock Android and doesn’t have the awesome software features that we loved so much in our review of the device, so it’s not surprising that it would get Android 5.0 faster than the standard version of the 2014 Moto X.

The single biggest mistake you can make when ordering an iPhone 6

If you’re ordering an iPhone 6 or 6 Plus online for the coming holiday season, you really shouldn’t order it through your wireless carrier, especially if that carrier is T-Mobile. Business Insider’s Steve Kovach learned this lesson the hard way when he ordered an iPhone 6 Plus through the “Un-carrier” and got a notice over the weekend informing him that the device might not ship until December 28th, or around two months after he placed his order.
