Samsung attacked the iPhone 5 by releasing a print ad titled “It doesn’t take a genius,” which did not take long to become viral. Nobody expected Apple to officially respond to the ad, but the “fanboys” quickly came to the rescue, albeit with not much success (or logic, or common sense). Now there’s a new “ad” ready to become viral, coming from Nokia fans (or maybe Windows Phone fans).

Verizon will start rolling out a software update to fix the 4G radio issue on the Galaxy Nexus starting September 14.

The Motorola RAZR MAXX HD is no exception, with its hefty 3,300mAh battery commanding the flagship phone.

Apple unveiled the new iPhone 5 a few days ago, but as usually, the company forgot to mention more details about its processor and RAM, although it did say that the new smartphone will pack a CPU that’s twice faster than the A5 found on the iPhone 4S and 22% smaller. Apple also said the iPhone 5’s GPU will offer twice the performance of its predecessor, again, without mentioning any details about it.
The Galaxy Note 2 has been just announced and it’s yet to hit stores anywhere in the world, so it’s definitely too early to think about next year’s Samsung tablet, a future Galaxy Note 3 that the Android maker will surely unveil at some point in the future.
