But that was not just what microsoft revealed this week, a few days later they officially announced windows Phone 8 and it will be available this fall, click here to check it out. The next big news which has been circulating the web is about the Samsung Galaxy S III. The news is that a guy was driving his car with his brand new Galaxy S III and his phone was in the car dock without the charger not plugged in, all of a sudden there was a flash of white smoke, sparks and a loud bang from the phone. Then he stopped his car to examine his phone, apparently the bottom of the phone burned and melted through the case. The man then sent the phone back to samsung and he did not receive a replacement phone. His problem might happen to any Galaxy S III user. Samsung knew about the problem and said they were investigating the problem, meanwhile the man is left with nothing.
Next is motorola is introducing a new look for their ICS Razr and Razr Maxx. Overall the interface has some similarities to the original ICS. For some users the new interface might be different but after some time it should look normal. A large amount of apps and the appearance of Motoblur has also changed.
