Given the apparent fixation of the lower-level rumor sites on the Galaxy S 4, I'm a little surprised that there's no story making the rounds about the GS 4 being an injectable nano-device that lives in your bloodstream, because pretty much everything else is out there already. Some of the rumors might be right, but mostly by accident -- the only thing that looks remotely credible is the idea that it'll come out sometime early in 2013.
Data, data everywhere -- the news that the iPhone 5 had quickly removed the Galaxy S III from its place atop smartphone sales charts came early this week, surprising almost no one. According to one analyst firm, the Galaxy S III was briefly the top-selling smartphone in the world -- the first to dethrone the iPhone even briefly.
While the iPhone is back on top, its bigger cousin might have more reason to sweat the competition, according to ABI Research, which released a report on Monday saying that Android devices are rapidly closing in on the iPad in the tablet market.
