The Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the top selling phones in the market at present, as we’ve seen over the year at time there can sometimes be software issues and it seems now that some people are having issues with the phone rebooting.
It’s now seems as if there will be a software update to fix this now.
A few weeks ago there were a number of people saying their phone was affected by smearing issues when using the touchscreen display.
Other problem some people seem to be having is launching the camera via the lock screen widget the phone can sometimes reboot. There also seem to be issues with the camera startup time that this can sometime be very slow compared to other android phones.

I wonder if this is really true because there has been so much talk about Microsoft releasing a Zune phone for so long now at this stage. The news comes not from Microsoft themselves (of course not) but from a Spanish website which is claiming that the Zune phone will be released at the mobile world congress in Barcelona next month.
It’s also said that it will be based on the Nvidia’s Tegra platform, which apparently is what Zune HD player actually uses.
If this is true it will possibly run on Microsoft mobile 7 which is also expected to be announced next month in Barcelona. It’s amazing the amount of rumors started flying around that would be nice to finally see this phone arrived in the marketplace.
Anyway, keep an eye on this one to see what develops over the next couple of weeks before the show in Barcelona and if the rumors actually turn out to be true or not.
Today we seen the launch of the Sony Ericsson Aspen. The phone comes with the Windows Mobile 6.5.3. Operating system. It has a 2.4 inch QVGA touchscreen display and comes with a full QWERTY keyboard. To help you to easily multitask it also has customizable panels and comes with the Sony Ericsson slide view feature.
I also see that it comes with the Microsoft Myphone service which allows you to remotely erase any phone date should you happen to lose the device or if the stolen. To be honest, I have not seen much on this Sony to find a little bit more information about this before we posted here. This application seems to be useful.

Vodafone are expected to launch a new phone from ZTE on their own brand name and expect to call it the Vodafone 547. The phone which is manufactured by ZTE will be a touchscreen phone and will come with accelerometer and Mobile TV.
So far there is very little known about this model is still awaiting features to be unveiled. We do know that the touchscreen will more than likely have 400 x 240 pixels resolution. It’ll be quite interesting to see what other features disconsolate when released and sure don’t have things like Skype enables us to go completely against how Vodafone make their money on calls. But, it will be nice feature if they did include this.
Hopefully over the coming weeks we will have more information on this particular model as it’s released.

Interesting news this weekend is that Mozilla are to release its first complete version of Firefox mobile. We believe that this will work with Nokia’s Maemo 5 based devices. The developers of the browser are promising a browser that is going to be powerful and competing with others that are available in the marketplace.
It will have features like tabbed browsing, extensions and also bookmarking synchronization using Weave. It’s intended initially to work with the Nokia N900 and will come with support for add-ons, which will allow the N900 and play You Tube video.
We also believe that for Fox is already in the alpha stage for Microsoft mobile and they are also working on a solution for the Android. It would be nice at some stage in the future to see them also developed the application to work with the Blackberry and the iPhone but unfortunately my presence due to policy restrictions this is simply not going to happen.
We constantly hear rumors of various models of the wild phones appearing on the market. It is still not been confirmed if there will be a 16 GB version of the X6 from Nokia. But, we believe that it will have a number of variants in colors when released. It’s been rumored that it will come in three versions: all black, pink on white, and blue on white.
In terms of specifications it should have a 360 x 640 pixels capacitive touchscreen display, Wi-Fi, GPS, TV out, 5MP Carl Zeiss camera. We do not believe it will come with a “Comes With Music” version. The ideal time for releasing a pink version of this would be around Valentines Day – but we will inform you if we get more information on this.
