BlackBerry Named World's Best Mobile OS by Technology Magazine

BB10 outshone Android 4.4 on a Nexus 5, iOS 7 on an iPhone 5s, and Windows Phone 8 on a Nokia Lumia 1520. The BlackBerry OS won the overall test with a rating of 56.91 and was judged to be the best OS for email, contact management, calling, photography, search, and video.
