Samsung could get another boost next month, when a special, non carrier-bloated version of the Galaxy S 4 hits the Google Play Store.
For those with upgrade-itis (hey, I've had my Nexus 4 for six months already... an eternity!), the HTC One could hold us over until either the X-Phone or Nexus 5 lands in the U.S.
I'm looking to jump ship asap from the Nexus 4, and was hoping to see an X-Phone at I/O. Either that or GSM versions of the HTC One, or Galaxy S4.
Microsoft continues to remain relevant, and took third place once again in the U.S. with 4.7% of all smartphone sales.
If investors are concerned about growth at Apple, an iWatch, with the potential for 60% margins, could be the answer.
Nicknamed "Knox" (as in the fort that Goldfinger busted into), Samsung's new security software was released this week at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
