The tablet is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 Quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, has a 32GB storage capacity and is LTE enabled. The Lumia 2520 sports a 6.7 Mega pixel shooter at the back and 2 MP camera in the front. The tablet will sell retail at $499 which is around the same as the Microsoft Surface 2, so will be a bit tough to decide which tablet is better. If you think the Microsoft Surface 2 has an edge due to it having a keyboard then think again, the Lumia 2520 has an optional Keyboard back cover, which also gives 5 hours extra of battery life, that would prove pretty handy in those emergency situations. The tablet will be available in four colors – Red, Cyan, White and Black.

BlackBerry on brink of Bankruptcy,sells itself for $4.7 Billion

BlackBerry seems to be getting pushed down further and further into a ditch it seems, first it laid off around 40 percent of its workforce as it was expecting a record second-quarter loss of almost $1 billion.  It seemed to working out “strategic alternatives” since several weeks now out of which two options were to either go private or sell itself. BlackBerry did just that and sold itself to a Canadian insurance company, Fairfax Financial for $9 per share, in a deal that would sum up to $4.7 billion. This decision was taken after Apple gained 5 percent of the market share where BlackBerry was already fairing badly in the first place.  Apple sold a record 9 million 5S and 5C iPhones on the first weekend alone. BlackBerry was trying to pull itself up by introducing their legendary messenger BBM for Android and iOS but sadly that too got halted due to technical issues.  According to a lot of financial analysts the best route for BlackBerry right now is to go private and rebuild itself from there, other wise it is just a sinking ship. Hopefully for the sake of all BlackBerry users worldwide the company manages to...
