Samsung Galaxy S III world’s most popular smartphone in Q3 (but iPhone 5 will change that)

Samsung Galaxy S III world’s most popular smartphone in Q3 (but iPhone 5 will change that)

Samsung's Galaxy S III ousted the iPhone 4S from the top-spot of world's best-selling smartphone in Q3 2012, new research indicates, with vast distribution and hefty operator subsidies credited for its success. 18m of the Samsung smartphones were shipped in the July-September period, according to Strategy Analytics' count, versus 16.2m iPhone 4S models. However, when you factor in the iPhone 5, Apple's duo does pip the Galaxy S III, with a total of 22.2m shipments in those three months.

T-Mobile USA lights up new HSPA+ and blasts AT&T iPhone speeds

T-Mobile USA has turned on HSPA+ in three new metro areas, claiming that in its tests with an unlocked iPhone 4S, it saw 70-percent faster downloads than on AT&T. The new service - in select parts of Washington D.C, Baltimore, and Houston - joins T-Mobile's existing iPhone-compatible "4G" 1900MHz provision as the carrier tries to remain relevant in the face of LTE services from rivals.

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

AT&T LG Optimus G Review

With the LG Optimus G, this OEM brings on its most powerful device by a long shot, with Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 Pro quad-core processor inside and a 4.7-inch TrueHD IPS+ LCD display up front, this running on AT&T's 4G LTE network here in the USA. What we're seeing here is a device that's ever so slightly confused in its identity - with more power than it knows what to do with in a device that looks and feels fabulous, but is just a bit bigger and more slippery than a normal-sized human being will be comfortable holding. Perhaps this combination of looks and processing power are enough to convince us that LG has suddenly become as much of a top-tier contender in the USA as Samsung and Apple?

The iPad mini will be free: here’s why

The iPad mini will be free: here’s why

In a world where the cost of some technology is hotly debated and is completely dismissed for others, it only makes sense that Apple would release the iPad mini for free. I wrote a column back before the iPhone 4S was release called Why the iPhone 4S will be free - turned out it wasn't the iPhone 4S that ended up being free, but the iPhone 3GS - and that was indeed the first time any iPhone was offered up for free in a sales structure that remains today (with the iPhone 4 in that position at the moment). Apple will bring this structure to the iPad universe too - but it wont wait for its oldest models to fall into the $0 position to make it happen.
