Blackberry10 To Add Skype, Amazon Kindle And Others 70000 Apps

Blackberry10 http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/

Blackberry10 will add 70,000 apps to Blackberry world, more than any of the first generation mobile OS platform at the first go. Then again, it is thanks to all those other mobile OS platforms that attracted developers to develop ads for them, RIM is able to boast about 70,000 apps.
I will not predict about RIM gaining the top spot it had for years in the smartphone arena, but if there is any chance for it to survive, in the competitive mobile market this is it.
But if there is anything to the BlackBerry, this is how RIM wants to portray it (Click on the video to see it larger);

Apple Dethroned As The Worlds Most Valuable Company

Apple Loses Crown As The Worlds Most Valuable Company http://snapvoip.blogspot.com/


Apple has once again lost the top spot as the worlds most valuable company as this morning, Exxon managed to snatch the title from Apple. Last time this happened, Apple’s market cap was $346.74 billion vs. Exxon’s $348.32 billion. Now Exxon-mobile has 417.59 Billion and Apple has a Market Cap of 413.91 Billion. I guess Exxon has been more mobile thatn Apple.

But Apple's value has gone much higher since the last time Apple was dethroned in August 2011.
