Samsung's new Galaxy S 4 is also packing another feature, for your health. It has a built in pedometer and an app called S Health. The phone has built in sensors to measure the temperature and humidity of your location, a body scale and heart rate monitor.
Samsung has introduced its latest flagship smartphone - the Galaxy S 4. It follows the spectacularly successful Galaxy S III, which sold over 100 million devices in 2012.
The S 4 looks like it's got some design DNA from the S III, and it still offers a more streamlined, refined design. The screen is 5 inches but the body of the device doesn't feel any larger than the Galaxy S III. Samsung made the device slimmer and stronger too, and you won't get the plasticky feel you got in the Galaxy S III.

The lack of resources in India makes healthcare not the readily available sort of service you would expect. Doctors and staff absenteeism from public medical facilities prevent many citizens from accessing care. A non profit has decided to change all that.
Another iPhone rumor is here. It's looking likely that the next Apple iPhone will come with a new elongated screen with an even higher resolution than the iPhone 4S's Retina display.
The Wall Street Journal reported last week when it unofficially confirmed the next iPhone will come with a 4inch display increasing .5 inches from the current iPhone 4S's 3.5 inch display. Reuters also confirmed WSJ's story.
Here's the latest from Sony: The Xperia Sola. The latest Android smartphone takes the touch out of touch screen, how exactly, we're not sure. The device's key feature is "floating touch" navigation, enabling web browing without touch the screen. I guessed that its hovering and I'm right:
Physicians at the Mayo Clinic Healthy Living Center in Rochester have credited an iPad for helping to save a patient's life. The Post-Bulletin reports that Andy McMonigle, a 48-year-old male nurse at the clinic, felt a pounding sensation in his arm on Feb. 23 after cycling.
