It was a busy week for the mobile world this past week but most of it wasn't on the Android side of things. Apple announced their new iPhone 5 and it wowed all those who've patiently waited for it. Samsung's been letting everyone know their Galaxy S III is better and I'm sure we'll be hearing more from them soon. Lets dive in.

It was pretty much a crazy Apple week. With their new iPhone 5 and its evolutionary (not revolutionary) 4-inch display, dual-core processor, and improvements to Siri. We won't get into the Apple vs Android debate today and will let that go for now. We did however compare the iPhone 5 to the Galaxy Note II -- and the Note is the clear winner.

Motorola had a busy week with the release of their new DROID RAZR M -- and you can see our review by clicking here. This week coming up should be another good one with LG set to debut their Optimus G quad-core flagship smartphone, then HTC has an event later this week too where we should see "what's next" from those folks.

Google's CEO announced there's now 500 million Android devices activated around the world, and they're lighting up around a million a day. Now for some Verizon news. Verizon released the LG Intuition and the RAZR M like we mentioned above. Then the Verizon Galaxy Nexus is now the only Nexus that still doesn't have Jelly Bean. Last but certainly not least the Samsung Galaxy Note II leaked complete with Verizon 4G LTE branding -- so that should make plenty of customers happy.

We have plenty of exciting things coming up next week so stay tuned. In the meantime catch up on all things that mattered to us this past week with the variety of links below. Enjoy week two of the NFL guys!
