An upcoming Sony Xperia phone has leaked, and codename C670X looks to buck the bigger-is-better trend we’ve been seeing from the company recently. After debuting the Xperia Z, a 5-inch 1080p device, the C670X appears to have a 4.8-inch display, certainly not much smaller than its predecessor but certainly view in the right direction.

We reported yesterday that the BlackBerry Z10 was receiving its first update across carriers, with Rogers, Fido and TELUS leading the way.

We’re hearing reports that Rogers and Fido BlackBerry Z10 owners are receiving their first OTA updates.

The update looks to be fairly small,

Now supporting multiple locations, with an easy-to-access left side bar, AccuWeather looks amazing and performs great.
