Samsung Galaxy S4 Active official: Rugged, waterproof with Aqua Mode camera

Samsung's Galaxy S4 Active, the ruggedized version of the Galaxy S 4, has been officially revealed, capable of surviving underwater as well as in dusty, bumpy conditions. Based largely on the S 4's specifications, though with a few notable changes, the Galaxy S4 Active has a 5-inch Full HD display though uses TFT LCD rather than AMOLED, while the rear camera steps down to 8-megapixels from 13-megapixels.

LG denies Nexus 5 involvement but confirms Android tablet for 2013

LG will not be making the "Nexus 5" for Google, one company executive has claimed, with the South Korean firm supposedly looking to in fact reduce its dependency on Android moving forward.

That's not to say superlatives are in short supply: an incredible 1080p 4.7-inch display, beautiful aluminum construction, and swift 1.7GHz quadcore all take their place inside the cool, crisp chassis.

No Verizon HTC One among 185 operator launch blast

Verizon Wireless will not join AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint in picking up the HTC One in the US, where the phone is expected to launch mid-March, as carriers worldwide confirm their intentions toward the new Android flagship. Verizon's network is conspicuously absent from the run-down of North American support, which also includes Cincinnati Bell and Best Buy in the US, and Rogers, Bell, TELUS, and Virgin Mobile in Canada.

HTC One: 4MP UltraPixel camera, 4.7-inch 1080p display, due March

HTC is back, and the HTC One looks set to take no prisoners. Wrapping top-tier specifications in a crisp, premium-feel aluminum chassis, the One refuses to join the megapixel race and instead strikes out alone, with a 4-megapixel equivalent camera that uses "UltraPixel" technology to serve up everyday shots that, HTC insists, will easily outclass its rivals with bigger numbers on paper.
