According to the guys over at the BGR, RIM’s first QNX
smartphone will be the BlackBerry Colt and it is expected to launch in
quarter one of 2012, and the device is apparently undergoing internal
testing at the moment, with a single core processor.
It could be possible that the BlackBerry Colt will launch with a dual

We’re not too proud and only marginally ashamed to admit we’re among
the few predominantly PC gamers who have not played Warren Spector’s

Deus Ex did back in its heyday.

into a mega-selling franchise before even reaching a development stage
where QA wouldn’t even bother to turn up their noses on other games.
It’s pretty hard not to like one of the few purveyors of quality
hardcore RPGs left in the business either.
Which meant when Bethesda started threatening Minecraft creator Mojang with legal action over their new game
"Scrolls”, it was extremely difficult to know which way our knees
should jerk. It’s all in the early stages, but here’s what Mojang
founder Notch had to say on the issue:
"I agree that the word ‘Scrolls’ is part of that trademark, but as a
gamer, I have never ever considered that series of (very good) role playing games to be about scrolls in any way, nor was that ever the fo
