HTC's upcoming flagship device, HTC M7, is rumored to be released during this quarter (Q1,2013). The first rendered image of the phone has been leaked (photo above) showing a big 4.7-inch display and white design similar to HTC Butterfly with two speakers on the front.
HTC M7 rumored specs includes a 4.7-inch, 1920 x 1080 resolution display with an incredible 468 ppi pixel density, 1.7GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage space, 13 megapixel, f/2.0 rear camera and 2 megapixel front facing camera with 1080p video recording.
Samsung might have decided that it makes sense to take the 5.8" Galaxy Player, and turn it into a phone. Granted, the resolution of said multimedia device is just qHD, and it is on the huge size.
Galaxy GT-I9152 Fonblet is the codename of this Player reincarnation, and before you dismiss the name as unlikely to happen, remember that Samsung actually filed a trademark for the Fonblet moniker last year, so it has every chance to become reality.

In the Google Play Store, there is an update for Flipboard that helps prevent accidental page flipping. Additionally, the update also exterminates some bugs that afflicted the app. But more importantly, for those with Android 4.2, it supports the Daydream feature for the OS build.
Daydream is a screensaver that turns on when the phone is charging or docked. Users can choose between seeing the clock, changing colors, photos or headlines from Google Currents. While the latter might sound interesting, it is not interactive which means while headlines appear before your eyes, you cannot touch on one to open a news story. And this is where Flipboard's update comes in.
