The Australian Financial Review bagged a scoop this week when Blackberry CEO Thorsten Heins declared the iPhone is pretty much dated technology.
Heins said that there is an increasing excitement towards non-Apple smartphones and the enthusiasm for Samsung's S4 signified this.
It is starting to look like Blackberry might have pulled itself from the brink of ruin after all.
The company's share price has surged after an established partner had placed an order for one million BlackBerry 10 smartphones, with shipments set to begin immediately.
After continuing pressure from shareholders, RIM co-CEOs Jim Balsillie and Mike Lazaridis have stepped down, to be replaced by chief operating officer Thorsten Heins.
