Photo of BlackBerry L-Series and iPhone 5 Side-by-Side Surfaces

Photo of BlackBerry L-Series and iPhone 5 Side-by-Side Surfaces

A new photo of the BlackBerry 10 L-Series smartphone has surfaced, but this time, along with the already-available iPhone5.  With very similar form factors and screen sizes, the BlackBerry vs iPhone battle is set to heat up.  These two phones will be competing head to head come February 2013.

Since we have both of them up here, it makes sense to run through a quick comparison.  The white iPhone 5 is shown, while the black (only?) L-Series is shown.  We do not yet know the production name of the L-Series, since it is quite a departure from the Torch line on previous BBs.  With a screen size of 4.2 inches diagonally, it comes in slightly larger than the screen of the iPhone 5.

The absence of buttons on the L-Series is quite obvious and has been known for some time, while the iPhone remains unchanged over past generations with its single home button.  Personally, I like the look of both devices and don’t mind the extra screen real estate of the L-Series.   What’s your favorite device of these two (asthetically)?  iPhone or BlackBerry?

This colorized transmission electron micrograph (TEM) revealed some of the ultrastructural morphology displayed by an Ebola virus virion. See PHIL 1832 for a black and white version of this image.

Where is Ebola virus found in nature?The exact origin, locations, and natural habitat (known as the "natural reservoir") of Ebola virus remain unknown. However, on the basis of available evidence and the nature of similar viruses, researchers believe that the virus is zoonotic (animal-borne) and is normally maintained in an animal host that is native to the African continent. A similar host is probably associated with Ebola-Reston which was isolated from infected cynomolgous monkeys that were imported to the United States and Italy from the Philippines. The virus is not known to be native to other continents, such as North America.
