BlackBerry CEO says iPhone is outdated

Posted: Updated:

By ROB GILLIES 

TORONTO (AP) — The chief executive of BlackBerry-maker Research In Motion says Apple's iPhone is outdated.

Thorsten Heins made the comment a day before the much-delayed new touchscreen BlackBerry goes on sale in the U.S.

Heins also said in an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday that a new keyboard version won't be released in the U.S. until two or three months from now.

Both models are part of RIM's attempt at a comeback after the pioneering brand lost its cachet not long after Apple's 2007 release of the iPhone.

Heins says a lack of innovation at Apple has left iPhone's user interface outdated. He says users have to go in and out of applications and it doesn't allow for multitasking like the new BlackBerry Z10 does.

    Puerto Rico just balanced its first budget in more than a decade. Sales taxes are up. But optimism remains low when it comes to those making financial investments in the commonwealth. Maglan Capital hedge fund managers David Tawil and Steven Azarbad seem to think Puerto Rico itself is not in any imminent financial danger, just its major utility companies. So why is this news to you? The simple answer: Puerto Rico is a major player when it comes to what Wall Street investors are interested in.
