Samsung has recently launched the Galaxy Alpha, the company's first smartphone made from premium materials.

By Luke Jones on Tuesday August 26, 2014

I had a chat to a rather successful Blackberry employee from the advertising team recently via email and she was extremely positive about the company's future.

The company even created a video showing how Gorilla Glass is better than sapphire, that's how not worried Corning is.
