6 ways Android is still better than the iPhone

In the battle for mobile supremacy between Apple’s iOS platform and Google’s Android software, it is impossible to say which is better. The reason is simple: neither is better. Each platform has clear benefits over the other, and each one also has areas where it is lagging behind its rival.

The key, of course, is to find the platform that is better for you.

We often pit Google’s Android and Apple’s iOS against each other in different ways because comparing their features helps readers identify their key differences and decide how meaningful each discrepancy is to them, personally. We have hit a number of key points in the past, and now a newly published article identifies six areas where Android still has the edge over iOS and the iPhone. More →

Download these free iPhone apps right now to save money while shopping for the holidays

It’s that time of year again, when people get ready to get ready for the holidays by rushing out to stores and trying to beat their neighbors to the best deals in town.

BlackBerry teaches us how to ditch our iPhones and Android phones for a BlackBerry phone

BlackBerry’s share of the smartphone market might be at an all-time low right now, but that hardly means the company is done pushing its devices and services to enterprise customers and, on occasion, to certain groups of consumers as well. With BlackBerry’s stock up more than 69% over the past 12 months, investors appear to be more than content with the company’s efforts, and confident that those efforts will pay off down the road.

The company has used a variety of tools and tactics in its effort to get customers to dump more popular platforms in favor of BlackBerry 10, and now a new post on BlackBerry’s official blog shows us how easy the switch can be. More →
