RIM has been mum on details concerning BlackBerry 10 but a recently leaked roadmap has shined a little light on subject. No official date has been released or announced but by looking at the roadmap we can see what RIM has in mind for upcoming BlackBerry releases and then play the guessing game as to when we should see BlackBerry 10.

I foresee RIM releasing BlackBerry 10 sometime in October or November based off previously stated timeframes for it’s release. This is purely speculation but I imagine that RIM does not want to get overshadowed by the release of the new iPhone which will most likely be making a late sumer/fall debut as well.

For those UK fans who have been patiently waiting for Motorola to give you an official taste of the latest Droid action, your prays have finally been answered. Motorola has announced that the Droid RAZR Maxx will be available sometime in May, but UK customers can begin to pre-order now.

The specs for the UK version of the Droid RAZR Maxx are near identical to its US counterpart. Both Clove and Expansy are currently taking pre-orders.

If you don’t like purple, simply give it to that special someone of yours. Until then, be on the lookout for the contest on Verizon Wireless’s official Twitter page.

PS. your partner may still like a romantic date even if you win the free phone.

For those who happened to miss the Samsung Galaxy Note Superbowl ad, the ad is simple no longer shall customers have to wait in long lines in order to buy a subpar phone such as iPhone, instead the Samsung Galaxy Note shall be your savior. It was a quirky and funny commercial, some may say it was a tad over the top, but the stage it was premiered on, sometimes over the top is better.

Preview: Droid RAZR MAXX, Sony Xperia S, Samsung Attain 4G, LG Connect 4G

With all the excitement surrounding the new phones that were displayed at CES by various companies, the Droid RAZR MAXX easily got lost in the mix. For all those heavy smartphone users who are tired of their phone battery’s not being able to keep up with the heavy demands of constant usage, the RAZR MAXX is for you. Armed with a battery that allows for users to talk for over 21 hours on a single charge, this phone may be the savior for many.

The Droid RAZR MAXX has the same specs as the Droid RAZR, and is still incredibly thin measuring in at 8.99 mm. The Droid RAZR MAXX comes with 32 GB of total memory and can be yours for $299.99 on a new two-year contract with Verizon.

Sony has quietly introduced the Sony Xperia S to CES 2012 to showcase all of its beauty. The Xperia features a monster 4.3-inch screen but oddly enough the phone is very thin, similar to the Droid RAZR. There are three white dots that line up with the home, menu, and back button. The dots correspond as buttons for each function, making the actually icons unaccessible.
