Samsung's Galaxy S III has ears and eyes just for you

Samsung says its newest smartphone, the Galaxy S III, has the brains to discern the sound of your specific voice and face from others.
Equipped with what the company calls Natural Interaction technology, the handset has a Smart Stay function that uses its front-facing camera to figure out if you're looking directly at it. In theory, the device will know not to, say, dim the screen when you need to view its display for extended periods. That should come in handy when reading e-books or lengthy online articles.
Another of the Galaxy S III's interesting features, called S more

Samsung unveils Galaxy S III phone with quad-core, Android ICS

Samsung today announced the highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III at a major press event in London. The quad-core, high-definition, Ice Cream Sandwich smartphone will be Samsung's most advanced Android handset yet, and will challenge the iPhone and the well-received HTC One X Android smartphone in the coming months.
The Galaxy S III will sell in Europe in May, followed by other regions worldwide. An LTE version of the phone is expected to come to the U.S. in summer, a year after the Samsung Galaxy Nexus launched on Verizon.
Many of the phone's rumored features have, in fact, come to pass. The Galaxy S III features Samsung's quad-core Exynos processor, a 4.8-inch HD AMOLED screen, and an 8-megapixel camera. Samsung has also customized a variety of features, including a custom interface it calls TouchWiz, and variations on Google's Ice Cream Sandwich camera apps and voice commands.

Motorola to bring another six patents into Apple fight

Motorola Mobility is bringing a bit more ammunition to its patent war with Apple.
The company plans to assert six additional patents in Florida, according to Foss Patents.
The patents represent a further escalation of the ongoing battle between Apple and Motorola, and is just one part of Apple's broader dispute with Android vendors and Google. Apple and Motorola have lawsuits in various courts around the world.
CNET contacted Apple and Motorola for a comment. We'll update the story when we get a response.
Motorola is seen as a company with a healthy portfolio of wireless-related patents, which more

Smartphone units to hit 1.7B in 2017; Android to dominate

Smartphone shipments are expected to increase at a compound annual growth rate of 24.9 percent over the next five years, according to research firm Ovum.
With that kind of growth, the firm expects total smartphone shipments to hit 1.7 billion units by 2017, easily outpacing the 488 million devices that hit store shelves in 2011. And as more devices ship worldwide over the coming years, expect Android to reign supreme.

iPhone 5 launching with 4-inch screen, new Dock connector?
That's the latest rumor from iLounge, which claims to have a source with knowledge of Apple's smartphone plans.

What's next for Apple's iPhone line?

The iPhone 5 rumors keep coming.
Apple's upcoming smartphone will come with a 4-inch screen, due mainly to a thinner, taller body, according to Apple-focused site iLounge, citing an unnamed source. The site's source claims Apple's new iPhone will be 10mm taller than the iPhone 4S, and about 2mm thinner. By keeping the same width and tossing in the display to fit the new form factor, Apple is able to deliver more screen space than what's available on 3.5-inch-equipped iPhones, according to the source.
Although the front of the iPhone 5 will look about the same, the back will feature a flat, metal panel stretching from beneath the camera to nearly the bottom. iLounge's sources did not say why the device might come with that additional element. Aside from the metal panel, the device will boast Gorilla Glass 2 technology, according to the site's source.

One of the more surprising moves, though, might be iLounge's contention that Apple will launch the iPhone 5 with a new Dock connector featuring fewer pins than the 30-pin option found across its mobile devices today. The new connector is "closer to a pill shape" and will find its way to all future mobile devices the company launches, according to iLounge.
Rumors have been surrounding the iPhone 5 for months now. Much of what iLounge claims will be coming to the device has already been cited in previous rumors. And in each case, Apple has stayed tight-lipped, allowing the rumor mill to heat up and speculation to run rampant. So, be sure to take all of this with a healthy heaping of salt until the final product is officially announced.
And when might that final product be announced? iLounge says the iPhone 5 is slated for a fall release.

ANDROID TABLETS SLIP AND FALL

Android tablets slip and fall in Q1. Apple's iPad says ha-ha!
According to research firm IDC, Android-based devices see a "steep" decline in quarterly shipments, but Apple's iPad is riding high.

Kindle Fire market share has tailed off considerably, according to IDC.

The tablet market showed some weakness during the first quarter, but Apple's iPad remained strong, according to new research from IDC.
During the first quarter of 2012, total worldwide tablet shipments hit 17.4 million, 1.2 million units less than the research firm had anticipated. And although that figure is down 38.4 percent compared to the busy holiday shopping season, it was up 120 percent over the 7.9 million tablets that shipped during the first quarter of 2011.
The main issue last quarter was weaker-than-expected performance of Android-based tablets. IDC did not provide exact Android tablet shipments for the quarter, since its figures are preliminary. Considering 11.8 million iPads were sold during the first quarter, however, and since RIM's PlayBook shipments were not substantial from a market-wide perspective, Android-based devices tallied several million unit shipments during the period.
"Although total Android shipments were down sharply in [the first quarter], companies such as Samsung and Lenovo are beginning to gain traction in the market with their latest generation of Android products," IDC wrote in a statement today. "IDC expects the segment to rebound quickly as other vendors introduce new products in the second quarter and beyond."

Still, it's hard to see which Android vendor will be able to worry Apple. According to IDC, Apple's market share last quarter jumped from 54.7 percent in the fourth quarter to 68 percent last quarter. Amazon's Kindle Fire, which secured 16.8 percent market share in the fourth quarter, could only muster a 4 percent slice of the market during the first three months of 2012. Samsung had the highest market share in the Android ecosystem, followed by Amazon and Lenovo.
"Apple reasserted its dominance in the market this quarter, driving huge shipment totals at a time when all but a few Android vendors saw their numbers drop precipitously after posting big gains during the holiday buying season," said Tom Mainelli, research director, Mobile Connected Devices at IDC. "Apple's move to position the iPad as an all-purpose tablet, instead of just a content consumption device, is resonating with consumers as well as educational and commercial buyers. And its decision to keep a lower-priced iPad 2 in the market after it launched the new iPad in March seems to be paying off as well."
Even with a sluggish first quarter, it's hard not to be bullish on the tablet market. NPD DisplaySearch reported today that tablet shipments are set to explode in the coming years, reaching 184.2 million units next year, and jumping to 424.9 million by 2017.
"The folks in Cupertino (Apple) keep talking about how tablets will exceed notebook shipments," DisplaySearch analyst Richard Shim said today in a statement. "Well, we're starting to see that as well."
