Welcome to Wednesday evening everyone. Today we saw images of what may be the rear housing of the iPhone 5S - yes, already. There aren't too many differences between it and the rear housing for the iPhone 5, but there are enough to make the images noteworthy. The high-end HTC M7 is rumored for a Q1 2013 release, and it appears that HTC wants it to get on shelves before Samsung launches the Galaxy S IV, while Samsung's iPhone 5-bashing Galaxy S III commercial was named that most viral tech ad of 2012.

We also heard from various companies that people were reaching for their phones and tablets on Thanksgiving to net some great deals, apparently not willing to wait until the Black Friday "festivities" kicked off.
