The next iPhone
Apple launched iPhone 5 in the mid September last year to the market, one of the devices known for excellence in the world of mobile technology. Although it may be little late to become a serious threat in terms of sales, Apple has not been logically still. There have been rumors since the beginning of this year that Apple has been working on the next iPhone 5S or iPhone 6 running iOS 7.
Although we know little or nothing about the future device and mobile operating system from Apple, if it exists, we could see the first glance of the next iPhone during the WWDC 2013 to be held later this year.
Windows Phone 8
Personally I do not think any device with Windows Phone 8 (Nokia Lumia 920 or HTC 8X) can compete with Samsung Galaxy S4 in terms of sales although its technical specifications do not differ greatly.
