Rumor Has It: Bye-bye, BlackBerry -- hello, BBM?

The next Galaxy Note could be pretty in pink, the Xbox One now has a possible release date, the iPhone might come in yet another color, and BlackBerry Messenger tries to save itself.


As the days get shorter, the temperature cooler, and there's nothing good to watch on TV, it could only mean one thing: fall is upon us. And that means that Apple is about to announce its next iPhone.

And with an impending announcement comes a bevy of rumors. What size will it be? What shape? And mostly, what color? Sure, we've heard about the gold-colored iPhone, but what about a graphite-colored one? If these leaked pictures are to be believed, you might have some choices to make come September.

Samsung also wants to make its own cell phone coat of many colors. The Galaxy Note 3 might come in black, white, But there's always a catch.

A leaked Xbox One photo shows that the next-gen console could also come in white, but maybe not when it's released on its rumored launch day.

Oh yeah, and remember BlackBerry? Right. Well, BlackBerry has kind of been in the bushes lately kicking rocks, but its BlackBerry Messenger might prove itself to be a survivor. The popular BBM app could spin off into its own company, leaving BlackBerry in the dust. Would you use it? Do you care? BlackBerry who? Hit the comments and let me know.
