"Unlike the other major players" implies Apple isn't a major player. It is. So is Samsung. Those companies are the ONLY two major players. Every new mobile flagship (althou all Apple has are flagships) by those two is highly anticipated yet still they take no part in MWC simply because they don't need to. It's a completely different league. Last year HTC showed us the One X at the MWC, Samsung waited and crushed HTC with S III, so did Apple with iPhone 5. Nothing to see here, just a business tactic.

Hmmm... wondering what Samsung is planning...? Maybe they are really collecting things that they can put on their phone to make the S4 the biggest contender. They already saw Sony's Xperia Z which a lot of people started to love since the CES. Now its got almost 2M hits and still doing well with ratings and all. Next big things will be the HTC M7 which is also one hell of a phone and the deadly Google owned company Motorola with their rumored X Phone! So maybe S4 will come out Q2 or Q3 of 2013 so that they can copy everything! Oh not to forget, they will watch out for Crapple's design and make it bigger! haha! Samsung fanboys are always starting the hype about their S4 being superior and the best among the rest when in fact it is just overrated! They make plastic phones, they don't look premium! At least, HTC, Moto especially Sony can build the best quality phones out there. Sold my S3 last November to buy One X+ and now I am eagerly waiting for the Xperia Z! Well, once S4 is released, Sony will have something better to offer. Xperia Z is their answer to the big and ugly Note 2. Good thing I am no longer mesmerized by Sammy's products nor Apple's! ;)

There are many devices similar to galaxy's specs from HTC, Sony, nokia but non of them sold good. Now beating samsung is not just about making killer devices but also about good marketing, supply, positioning for which a company should have better strategy and deep pockets..

They don't want to be there, yet. They are waiting on Apple's next move.

Hell man, Apple is playing this market like a f in king.

Good job apple. When your competitors build their phones around your flag ships specs, and only target your company, you are definitely boss of the smart phone world.

> In reply to [deleted post]And neither do Crapple Grapes either!
The destruction DROID handsets and Sammy in particular gave Crapple Grapes last year has clearly left a sour taste in your Crapple mouth - no pun intended.
I guess all the countless innovations from Sammy and the flexibility of Android has really juiced the crap out of Apple - again, no pun intended.
Don't worry though, Sammy will for sure finish the job of this year with their latest flagships whilst Apple are thinking of thier next way to sue threatening competition!

Lets the S4 hype begin!!!

Expectations are:

Internals: We all know what it will be
Materials: Good plastic made to look cheap and cheesy
Design: To replace the pebble inspired design, S4 design will be inspired by rocks (which Samsung designers saw while taking a walk in a random country, which has a nice scenery next to their 7 star hotel). Of course followed by some stupid PR video that states their designers were given the design by an angel of God.
Screen: AMOLED 1080p - more ppi so everyone can finally realise why AMOLED colours look like Pixar helped them develop the colours. We love cartoons :P
Marketing: Cheesy and a big slap in the face of all marketers in the world. Inspired by nature, design for humans tag line will be replaced with: Inspired by mother nature, designed for girls.

With windows platform Nokia is going down.... windows phone sucks and its end is coming soon. I dont see any difference between windows 7 and 8? anyways, any company that partners with microsoft is either bankrupt or aquired and sold in pieces...
RIP Nokia.... all the best Samsung....
