The Samsung Galaxy S III has officially been on its way to Boost Mobile for more than a couple of weeks now. If you’ve been patiently waiting for it to reach the shores of Sprint’s prepaid brand, know that your wait is almost over. In five short days you’ll be able to pick one up, since it’s going to be released on June 12.
It will cost $399.99 (excluding taxes), which is pretty decent considering the fact that you won’t have to sign a two-year contract to get it at that price. On the other hand, the Galaxy S III is literally last year’s flagship, and its successor is already out at other carriers. That said, this will be Boost’s highest-end handset to date, so that pretty much says everything about how prepaid carriers value their smartphone lineups.Read more

Samsung Galaxy S4 has already started to get in the hands of millions of customers worldwide and why should WIND Mobile customers wait for long? The Canadian carrier has sent out an email to its customers confirming that it’s launching the much-awaited handset on May 14, priced at $699 outright.
The recently launched Galaxy S4 doesn’t need any selling but still customers want to know the carriers selling the handset and also the best available deals. As the handset has already launched on other Canadian carriers, and WIND Mobile seems a bit late in offering the handset, the carrier wouldn’t want to miss out on its share of capturing more customers with the the help of the one of the most popular handsets currently available.

It was Wednesday this week when we first relayed word of the supposed Samsung Galaxy S4 Zoom, a slightly watered down version of the flagship S4 with a purported 16MP rear camera.
Fast-forward a couple of days and the thing has only gone and gotten itself confirmed by Bluetooth SIG. Well, sort of.
What’s the hell’s a Bluetooth SIG? Its full name is Bluetooth Special Interest Group, a non-profit organisation that oversees, er, Bluetooth-related stuff; device classifications and so on.Read more

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is bigger, lighter and faster than its predecessor. It’s also easier to break, a phone-insurance firm has concluded.
The flagship phone by Samsung Electronics Co. also scored worse than Apple Inc.’s iPhone 5 in tests in which the phone was dropped and dunked in water, SquareTrade Inc. said today. On a scale of one to 10, with 10 being worst, the S4 got a seven, compared with a 6.5 for its older cousin, the S3, and a five for the iPhone.
Samsung is counting on the S4 to help extend the Suwon, South Korea-based company’s lead in smartphone sales. The phonemaker got one-third of the global smartphone market in the first quarter — almost twice as big as Apple’s share, research firm Strategy Analytics said last week.Read more

There is another Samsung Galaxy Note 3 8.0 news today. And this is not a rumor, in a way. The news comes from the Bluetooth SIG, as the tablet has headed there for the certification. The mobile device has the model number SM-T311, which we have seen in previous rumors.
But the Bluetooth SIG does not mention the device as the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 8.0. This name is also not yet official. Although, Bluetooth SIG indicates that we are looking at a Samsung “Mobile Tablet” device here. The certification listing date for the device has been listed as April 26th.Read more
