The rumored Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo might soon be officially announced, if a recent leak is to be believed.
Samsung-tracking site Sammobile on Thursday said that it received a tip from a reader claiming that a Galaxy Note 3 Neo preorder page has been designed and will soon go up on a Belgian retailer Web site.

iPhone 5S owners are the data-hungriest of all mobile device users, says a report released Thursday by JDSU.
Users of the 5S slurp up seven times more data over the study's benchmark iPhone 3G in developed markets and 20 times more data in developing markets. Apple smartphones and tablets accounted for six of the top 10 most gluttonous devices with the inclusion of the iPhone 5C, 5, and 4S and the iPad 3 and 4.
"Each new generation of iPhone has resulted in increases in data consumption of between 20-40 percent -- even today when data use is … Read more
Now that the teams for that certain super-sized sporting event have been determined, you might want a new TV for the occasion. Or maybe you'd like to take advantage of some of the lowest prices of the year.
Just about every HDTV looks great displaying football and other sports in high def, but there's one key ingredient that separates "great" HDTVs from those that make you say "Boom!" No, we're not talking about motion resolution, 4K, or even black levels this time. We're talking about sheer size.
This year our list of Bowl-worthy big-screens, arranged in descending order of review rating, is bigger than ever. It doesn't include any TVs smaller than 64 inches, and the final three hit 70. Because nothing says "huge fan" like a huge TV. Or because more size is the best way to spend your extra TV dollar. Or just because your buddy down the street just got a wimpy 60-incher.
Of course if you don't want to go quite this big, you can click through the review to see smaller (and cheaper) alternatives. And if none of these choices cuts it, check out our lists of Best TVs arranged by size.
Samsung quietly announced that Verizon will be the only US carrier to offer the Galaxy Note 3 in a new color. A short mention on the hardware maker's Web site confirms Verizon will carry the 5.7-inch smartphone in Rose Gold.
Unfortunately, the phone's exact availability isn't clear, but we can assume it'll cost the same as the Jet Black and Classic White versions -- $299.99 on contract. And, while Samsung does have Rose Gold accents for both black and white body colors, it appears Verizon may only carry the white and rose gold version. … Read more
A federal judge issued a partial summary judgment late Tuesday that invalidated one Samsung patent and found the South Korean electronics giant in infringement of an Apple patent.
Judge Lucy Koh of the US District Court of Northern California found that Samsung's Android-based handsets infringe on Apple's US patent No. 8,074,172 for an autocomplete feature that automatically generates word suggestions based on what the user is typing. Koh also found invalid Samsung US patent No. 7,577,757, which covers multimedia synchronization, reducing the number of patents in Samsung's complaint from five to four.
