The purported roadmap, which appeared on Twitter account @BB10Leaks, shows a tablet device by the name of ‘B10L’ and claims that the model will launch in Q3, presumably just in time for the holiday season.

UPDATE: The Canadien Press agency reports BlackBerry's supposed tablet roadmap was a hoax started by an anonymous users on Twitter who has since confessed it was made up.

The roadmap also hints at another new QWERTY phone, a possible phablet and points to Q1 release dates for BlackBerry’s Z10 and Q10 smartphones, both which launched at the start of the year.

It is worth noting that @BB10Leaks didn’t reveal where it received this [...]

Developer logs suggest Apple is working on the iPhone 6 and iOS 7

According to The Next Web, developer logs have started to appear referencing the ‘iPhone 6.1’, a device that was seemingly being run by iOS 7. The logs also note the iPhone 5 with monikers ‘iPhone 5.1’ and ‘iPhone 5.2’, with the difference between the two depending on the LTE model and 4G band frequency.

While these codes can sometimes by manipulated, the source adds to the authenticity of the report by saying that the IP address of the new iPhone came from inside Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino.

Apple only released the iPhone 5 in September and has traditionally kept to a yearly cycle with the smartphone, only for [...]

Apple all but confirms iPhone 5 debut September 12

The invite shows a big number 12 casting a shadow of the number 5. September 12 has  long been rumored as the date Apple will show the successor to the iPhone 4S, the iPhone 5, expected to be a bigger device with a 4-inch display and other improvements. 

iPhone fans have been waiting for the iPhone 5 for some time. Much of the speculation leading up to what turned out to be the iPhone 4S a year ago, was that that device would be the iPhone 5. But Apple surprised by bringing out the iPhone 4S which, though it was a definite improvement over the iPhone 4, didn’t advance the line as much as many had expected and hoped.

In addition to a larger screen, the [...]

GoPago offers retailers, restaurants free Android tablet and payment system

In fact there are a couple of gotcha’s in the GoPago LIVE system, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a good deal for merchants. 

The so-called Payment as a Service (PaaS) system is “free” for merchants, but GoPago takes a 2.85% cut of each transaction. Also, customers have to use the tablet and GoPago app to pay for their purchase. That fee covers both GoPago’s cut and the credit card company’s fees. 

The payoff for the merchant, such as neighborhood stores and restaurants, is free set up and support and the GoPago system without incurring the upfront costs normally associated with the adoption of new [...]

RIM will launch a bigger PlayBook next autumn, claims report

The company’s product plans, tipped at BlackBerry fansite BlackBerry OS today, shows what's said to be a photo of RIM's roadmap that indicates RIM hopes to launch a 4G PlayBook in Q4, before pushing out the unknown ‘Blackforest’ tablet in Q3 in 2013.

The roadmap didn’t reveal an exact size for the device, but the picture of the tablet was bigger than that of the one for the 4G PlayBook, perhaps indicating that this ‘Blackforest’ tablet might be a 10-inch model. There was also a mention of '128' under the tablet, which might suggest the tablet will come with 128GB of memory.   Towards the end of last week, RIM [...]

Verizon prepares family data plans, but don’t expect good value

Verizon’s plans will include shareable data, unlimited phone calls and unlimited text messages, and will allow for these features to be shared among up to ten Verizon Wireless devices. The packages will launch on June 28.

The sad fact is that these family plans are well over-priced at this point. Data costs an astounding $50 for 1GB (to be shared among devices), and goes up to $60 for 2GB, $70 for 4GB for $80 for 6GB. Those with deeper wallets can also go to $90 for 8GB or $100 for 10GB.

Users who approach their data limit will face a $10 upgrade for an additional 2GB of data, or will be forced to pay $15 for 1GB if they don't upgrade and exceed their [...]

Report indicates tablets now account for 40% of mobile data plans

These figures come from the firm’s Mobile Broadband Price Benchmarking Service, which also notes the emergence of 4G-specific tablet plans from the likes of Vodafone in Germany, and Sprint in the United States

Unsurprisingly given the increasing availability of 4G tablets and compatible networks (at least in North America), Strategy Analytics expects a ‘dramatic increase’ in 4G tablet plans for the rest of 2012.

"Offering tablet plans and devices is a key part of mobile operator strategy”, said author of the report, Pawel Kmiec. 

“Of all the plans available from mobile operators, tablet plans now account for almost 40 [...]

AT&T reckons it’s the end for WiFi-only tablets, might be slightly biased

As outlined by a handful of researchers, consumers often opt for a WiFi-only tablet over a 3G model, and this is almost certainly down in part to the hefty $100-plus premium which consumers can expect to pay to gain a tablet with the ubiquitous connectivity offered by a 3G or 4G network. The relatively pricey data plans (which tend to start around $15) are also likely to have an effect too.

However, according to Glenn Lurie, president of emerging devices at AT&T, that is all about to change. Speaking in an interview at the CTIA Wireless trade show yesterday, the executive claimed that 3G tablets could soon become commonplace, now that the cost of implementing 3G HSPA+ [...]
