Late News: BlackBerry OS 10 Document Leaked, Microsoft Office 15 Technical Preview, iPad 3 4G LTE

Details of a pre-release BlackBerry OS 10 have emerged on the web with CrackBerry claiming that it has managed to get its hands on an internal RIM document that was supposedly made by an external ad agency partner of RIM. The 14 page document is a BlackBerry 10 briefing document that provides background information on the latest BlackBerry 10 along with tips for partner on how to position the OS for advertisements.

Microsoft has confirmed that the public beta of the next version of Office suite will roll out this summer before which awaiting fanboys will be given a taste of Office 15 through a "technical preview". Imitating last year's strategy of rolling out a technical preview for Office 2010, Microsoft is going to let a select few taste the Office 15 this time around.

Toshiba's dual core Regza AT200 tablet has appeared in Asian retailers, suggesting that its international release isn't too far away. It seems likely that this launch is designed to pre-empt Apples own iPad 3 release which is just around the corner. Tablet purchasers and fanboys alike will be flocking to the stores when that third generation of tablet appears, so it makes complete sense to get in before the rush.

Apple will announce an iPad 3 version capable of running on AT&T and Verizon Wireless fourth generation LTE networks, at a launch event in the first week of March, according to reports. Apparently, where LTE is not accessible the iPad will automatically switch to using a slower available network.

Apple's chief executive officer Tim Cook has defended the much criticised working conditions in its international supplier's facilities, and then argued that the company cares for every single worker, working for them. The comments from the CEO came just a day after the iPhone maker had assigned the Fair Labor Association (FLA) to carry out audits, of most of its international suppliers that include Foxconn.
