Jolla has announced its first smartphone (also called Jolla) powered by the new Sailfish OS. It offers a 4.5-inch “Estrade” display, a dual-core processor, and 4G LTE connectivity. In an effort to help you switch from Android, Jolla has made the device “Android app compliant.”
Android and iOS managed to grab a whopping 92.3% of all smartphone shipments during the first quarter of 2013, with a total of 199.5 million units sold worldwide. There are no prizes for guessing which of the two platforms grabbed the most market share.
The BlackBerry Q10, BlackBerry’s first smartphone to combine a physical keyboard with its new operating system, has gone on sale in the U.K. this week, and according to the early reviews, it’s going to be a winner — for those who like phones with physical keyboards, at least.
But it appears the NEC Terrain for AT&T wants to spoil its party by giving keyboard users an Android-powered option.
In case you hadn’t already heard, BlackBerry launched its new BlackBerry Z10 back in February, finally making its new BlackBerry 10 platform available to the public. The device has gotten off to a surprisingly good start for the Canadian company, with more than one million units sold during its first month of availability.

SwiftKey 4 is now available for Android, bringing Flow, a new gesture-based typing experience, to one of the platform’s most popular third-party keyboards. Flow works just like Swype for Android, or Google’s latest stock keyboard — allowing you to slide your finger across the on-screen keys to type. It even lets you write multiple words, so you can type out full sentences without ever lifting a finger.
BlackBerry 10, BlackBerry’s last hope at competing with Android and iOS, has gotten off to a good start since its release last week. The BlackBerry Z10, the first of two BB10 devices that will launch in the coming months, has seen strong sales in the U.K., while there’s plenty of pre-order interest in other markets, too.
What’s likely to be most encouraging to BlackBerry, however, is that 50% of pre-order customers in its native Canada aren’t already BlackBerry customers — they’re switching from the likes of Android, iOS, and Windows Phone.
It’s official: the BlackBerry Z10, the first smartphone to ship with the new BlackBerry 10 operating system, and what many believe is the last chance for BlackBerry (formerly RIM) to save itself from complete irrelevance.
The early reviews of the Z10 aren’t bad, but aren’t great, pretty much agreeing that the smartphone is just good enough to buy BlackBerry some time. But how does it stack up, spec-for-spec, against the iPhone 5 and some of Android’s top phones? We’ve put together a chart for you to see for yourself.
