BlackBerry today confirmed a rumour that first appeared on Boy Genius Report a while back, and that some might have thought would actually never happen, by announcing that BlackBerry Messenger will be coming to iOS and Android sometime this summer, once it gets approval from Apple and Google. The news caused such a stir that it was trending worldwide today. In a post on the “Inside BlackBerry” blog, BlackBerry outlined its plans for its flagship service, saying, “We’ve got some exciting news designed to make it easier for you to connect with your entire mobile social network.” Basically what this means is that people can connect with their friends and family on BlackBerry Messenger without having to use a BlackBerry to do so.
Apple’s famous glass cube store in New York has come in for a bit of a soaking, according to a report in the New York Post today, via AppleInsider.
AppleInsider reports today on new figures from Chitika that show that Apple’s iPad has just seen its first increase in web traffic since last December, with iPads now making up 81.9% of US and Canadian tablet web traffic. This reverses the trend show in February’s figures from Chitika, whereby the iPad’s web traffic share had a small drop, from 81% to 80.5%.

Pocket Gamer reports today on a mysterious new teaser tweet that has just been posted by Gameloft on its Twitter page, which is basically just a picture of two very Iron-Man-looking eye slits, with no words other than the date, 27.03. 13. As Pocket Gamer points out, you don’t have to be as clever or as rich as Tony Stark to work out that this is most likely Gameloft’s not-so-subtle way of saying that it will be releasing a new Iron Man 3 game for iOS tomorrow.
Hard to believe, but it’s actually 20 years since Duke Nukem II was first released. The iOS version of the classic Duke Nukem 3D proved to be incredibly popular, so it’s no surprise that the side-scrolling sequel to the original Duke Nukem is now finally coming to iOS, courtesy of Interceptor Entertainment and 3D Realms
According to a report on iDownload Blog today, the next full-sized iPad looks likely to use different touchscreen technology than the current iPad 4 does, with Apple looking to use the same sort of GF2 display tech that the iPad mini has. This would have the effect of making the next full-sized iPad’s display assembly thinner than the current glass-on-glass unit if the report were to be accurate, and that certainly supports other recent rumours about the next iPad, which have said it will be thinner and lighter than previous models. The original story was sourced from Japanese blog Macotakara, which cited sources from two Taiwanese news agencies.
Despite the fact that they only just announced that the now-freemium Real Racing 3 would be launching on February 28, it seems that Electronic Arts has released the game early in Australia and New Zealand. At the time of writing the game was not, however, available in the US or the UK, so it’s not known in what other countries you will be able to download the game from the iTunes store, or whether or not everyone else will have to wait until February 28. As was reported earlier in the week, this will be the first Real Racing game to be free to download, and going by what iDownload Blog says after they got their hands on the game (see video), fears that the in-app purchases will spoil the gaming experience are largely unfounded
