I say it’s a good week for Apple and Google just because Google upgraded/added a bunch of apps that are awesome for me. They upgraded the Gmail iOS app to finally be a usable alternative to the stock iOS mail client. Then there was the Google Drive app, and to top it off, Chrome for iOS!
I really like using Google’s services, which used to make me believe I should want to use Android. But, I tend to prefer Apple’s OS, and so any improved integration with Google’s services is awesome for me.
But, from last night on RIMs earnings call, Wow. BGR has their usual RIM-is-dead piece, but as time goes on they sound less over the top. I don’t really care about the drop in sales or revenue, but by far the biggest deal is the further delay in releasing the first BB10 phones. What is going on? RIM purchased QNX 2 years ago now. They adapted it for the tablet within a year, and now the total time to get it ready for a phone will be 3 years? Really? That is absolutely ridiculous. 3 years is an eternity in mobile software. I’m trying really hard to believe there’s some hope, RIM!
