Yesterday Apple announced their sixth generation generation iPhone, the iPhone 5. It has a larger 4 inch screen, it has a new A6 chip, and it’s the first iPhone to come with 4G LTE support. What should the Android world think about this new device? Most people’s reactions will fit under one of three categories: apathy, optimism, and fear.

Well Apple has announced the new iPhone 5. It pretty much conforms to the rumors that were flying around before the San Francisco event kicked off. It’s certainly an improvement on the iPhone 4S, but is it enough to tempt you away from Android? In a word – no!

Since Samsung is the largest Android handset maker in the world it is easy to overlook the fact that the Korean giant has its own smartphone operating system called Bada. Derived from the Korean word for “ocean” or “sea”, Bada runs on seven Samsung devices all from its “Wave” series. The top of the line model is the Wave 3 which has a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen with Corning Gorilla Glass, a 5MP camera and is powered by a 1.4GHz CPU. Not bad.
