Nokia has a new Lumia coming, and much like it did last time around with the Lumia 920, it's crowing about the camera. The new phone is called the Lumia 928 and it's set for announcement on Friday. Nokia has taken to a rollercoaster this time around to pit the camera cred of its new flagship against the Apple iPhone 5 and the Samsung Galaxy S III.


It's safe to assume these days that someone who has your phone will be able to get through the lockscreen. Now, the Samsung Galaxy S III has a security bug too. You can gain full access to a locked Galaxy S III with a series of simple button presses.


Last night HTC held an event in Sydney to take the covers off of the HTC One locally, and we got our first chance to go hands-on. We had been worried about the camera previously on the HTC One, saying that the four-megapixel sensor -- despite its ultrapixel goodness -- might be ignored by some users. Turns out the HTC One beats the pants off of the Samsung Galaxy S III in pretty much all of the tests last night.


Last night we bumped into Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Canonical and Ubuntu commander in chief, at CES 2013. After pleasantries were exchanged, we had a quick chat about Ubuntu Mobile, and he was kind enough to show us his Samsung Galaxy Nexus with the operating system running on it. I must say, it looks amazing.


The smartphone market of 2012 has seen some heated competition. The usual contenders all released solid hardware. But the dynamic between them changed, too -- Windows Phone arrived as a serious third OS option, and 2012 ended with exciting new models of iPhone and Android devices. Here's a look at the best new products people put in their pockets this year.


Samsung's Galaxy S III is one of the best phones you can buy. It's fast, it's beautiful, it's got guts most handsets can only dream of. That's why it's so disappointing that Samsung's Galaxy S III Mini, officially announced today, isn't just the same phone in a smaller body. It's a lesser phone in every way.


Samsung has confirmed that it will unveil a new, smaller Galaxy S III on October 11. The new phone won't be a budget version, but rather a (slightly) scaled-down device, with a 4-inch screen for those who prefer a more pocketable handset.


The Galaxy S III has a beautifully large 4.8-inch (720 x 1280) display, crisp 8-megapixel camera, quad-core processor and long-lasting 2100mA h battery. And the speedy new 4G-equipped Galaxy S III model hits Australia on October 9th, complete with Android 4.1 Jellybean. Yet Samsung's best smartphone also gets the little things right, like nudging you when you’ve missed something. Let's take a closer look.


If you have a Samsung mobile phone running Android with the TouchWiz UI, there's a newly discovered vulnerability that could result in an accidental factory data reset by simply accessing a link from your phone. This includes some Galaxy S II and Galaxy S III devices. UPDATE: Other Android devices not using TouchWiz are also affected.


The iPhone 5 has been the most anticipated mobile device of 2012 together with its cousin the iPad Mini, which we expect to be seeing shortly. Apple has made displays its most prominent marketing feature, because it determines the quality of the visual experience for everything on a smartphone or tablet -- including apps, web content, photos, videos and its camera. The retina displays on the iPhone 4 and the new iPad were significant advancements -- not just in sharpness but in picture quality and colour accuracy, which is what provides the display's real wow factor.


Look, I'm just going to come out and say it. It's what we're all thinking, right? Is just a bit petty that Samsung is attacking people who line up for Apple products when nobody is game to line up for Samsung's?
