We already know that the Nokia Lumia 925 will be available in the UK (as well as in other markets) starting June. Two new upcoming HTC smartphones have surfaced today, one getting itself certified in Taiwan, the other showing up in some benchmark results. Verizon Wireless is the last major US mobile carrier to start selling the Samsung Galaxy S4. Although its official launch day is May 23, those who’ve pre-ordered Verizon’s S4 last week (or earlier) are starting to receive it as of today – according to Droid life. Sprint is apparently getting ready to add two new smartphones from LG to its roster. The first one is the LG Optimus F3, the lowest-end in the Korean company’s new F-series, which is supposed to be all about bringing LTE to the masses in a few affordable packages. Sprint has announced that its subsidiaries Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile would launch the Samsung Galaxy S III starting June. While it’s very likely that neither of Samsung’s two Galaxy Mega phablets will be launched before the end of this month (May), we now know how much the Mega 6. Sony’s brand new Xperia ZR Android smartphone should be available starting the end of June – although not all countries will get it. Although it’s been rumored for many months now, T-Mobile’s upcoming Samsung Galaxy S III with LTE support still isn’t on sale. Proudly announced by Nokia last week, the new Lumia 928 Windows Phone 8 handset only has 16 GB of internal memory. The Acer Iconia W3 is definitely real. The tablet was first leaked a couple of weeks ago, and now it’s been confirmed by none other than Acer itself. The rumored Samsung Galaxy S4 Active is a real device, and several live photos of it have appeared on the Web to prove that. When Samsung announced the Galaxy Tab 3 7.0, it said the new tablet would be affordable. However, it didn’t provide an exact price. Built on the remains of Nokia’s and Intel’s MeeGo, Sailfish OS is a brand new mobile platform developed by Finnish company Jolla – founded by ex Nokia employees. Each year in May Vodafone launches a new own-brand smartphone called Smart. At least that’s been the case for the past two years, and here we are in May and there’s a new Vodafone Smart up for purchase. Samsung’s unannounced Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 has been pictured today – and it looks a lot like the Galaxy Tab 3 7. Nokia’s Lumia 925 is certainly a great camera phone – thanks to the company’s PureView technology, optical image stabilization, the new Smart Camera software, and the Carl Zeiss lens. The Microsoft Surface Pro is finally on its way to Europe. Well, to parts of the continent at least. Microsoft’s tablet is going to land on UK shores on May 23, followed by a release in more European countries on May 30, so exactly one week later. Samsung’s Galaxy Mega 6.3 i9200 and Galaxy Mega 5.8 i9150 were announced in April, with the promise that they’d be released starting May in Europe. The upcoming Sony Xperia UL has been caught in the wild for the first time, and a few photos resulted. The Asus FonePad just got a hardware upgrade. In its native Taiwan, Asus launched a new version of the tablet today, one that comes with a beefed-up processor and more internal storage space.
