(Updates from 1:02 p.m. ET with closing prices.)NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- BlackBerry (BBRY - Get Report) shares were fluctuating between gains and losses as CEO Thorsten Heins made waves by saying that Apple's (AAPL - Get Report) iOS operating system was outdated.
Despite the verbal assault by Heins, shares of Apple (AAPL - Get Report) were up 1.81% to $451.69 after a Chinese language website suggested Apple may introduce a new iPad mini. The website CNYes.com CNYes said Apple may market an upgraded iPad mini this spring. The new iPad mini would come with Retina Display, something the original iPad mini doesn't have. Late last year, speculation grew that Apple would announce an upgraded iPad mini with Retina Display, though timing was uncertain. Apple couldn't be immediately reached for comment for this story.
Glu Mobile (GLUU - Get Report) shares rose 8.68% to $3.63 after Northland Capital Markets analyst Darren Aftahi upgraded shares to "outperform" from "market perform."

Glu Mobile is partnering with Probability to bring elements of Glu's popular Samurai vs. Zombies Defense to a gambling product.
