While we can initiate calls using the Phone App or by launching Contacts, this doesn't preclude us from utilizing a third-party app to make this process quicker and easier. For those of you who regularly communicate with certain individuals, SwipeCall is a native BlackBerry 10 app which allows you to swipe left-to-right to quickly make a phone call.

Moto's modular masterpiece and Nokia's never known novelty.

Motorola's latest phones — the Moto Z and Moto Z Force have at long last arrived, but with a catch: they're Verizon "Droid"-brand exclusives for now. But give it a little while and the modular-backed smartphones will be available elsewhere. And even though the BlackBerry Security Summit was all about, well, security, we couldn't help but wander about new BlackBerry devices — word on that is coming next week.

Windows Mobile is going through something of a retrenchment period while a new path forward is plotted, but before things went south there was the Nokia McLaren. This highly impressive Windows Phone never saw the light of day until now, and we've got everything you need to know about its giant camera, all-metal body, and insane depth- and pressure-sensing display. Oh, and Microsoft made a bunch of money in the last quarter.

VR took a step into the mainstream with an impressive Mr. Robot tie-in and a new Star Wars game for HTC Vive. Speaking of the Vive, it's cropping up in the most unexpected places, like hospitals.

And, as you might expect, PokéGeddon continues, and we're all in. There's a new podcast — Go Time! — tips on throwing Pokémon Go curveballs, and a parent's guide to the insanity.

BlackBerry victorious in U.S. patent infringement lawsuit brought by Mobile Telecommunications LLC

BlackBerry has scored 'a sweeping victory' as the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Texas ruled in favor of BlackBerry in a patent infringement case brought by Mobile Telecommunications LLC (MTel).

MTel had originally claimed that BlackBerry infringed on five of their patents but before heading to trial, the Court found that two of the patents were directed to non-patentable subject matter, that BlackBerry did not infringe one of the patents, and that one of the patents was indefinite.

We are pleased with the jury's verdict, said Steve Zipperstein, Chief Legal Officer at BlackBerry. "We will continue defending BlackBerry vigorously against meritless lawsuits."

The remaining patent addressed in the suit, covered a two-way communication system for communication between a system network and a mobile unit.
