It’s been an action packed week full to bursting with tech. We’ve seen everything from new tablets to entire new smartphone platforms – and yes, even a brand new, next-generation console. Read on for everything you missed in this week’s Gadget Digest.
BlackBerry 10 arrives
RIM’s fightback began in earnest on Wednesday when it unveiled not just two new phones – the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10 – but a completely new operating system as well, BlackBerry 10.

iOS 6: The jailbreak is back
Got an iPhone 5 or an iPad mini, but wishing you could unlock it to pimp it out to your heart’s content? Your wish is almost our command: a crack team of iPhone hackers is gearing up to unleash an iOS 6 jailbreak on the world as soon as this weekend, so you’ll be able to install the apps and settings Apple doesn’t want you to have very soon.

But don’t worry – it’s not quite what you think.
A new iPad unleashed
