Android 5.0 "Key Lime" should get released, bringing Android deviceseven closer to iOS in terms of refinement and useability Galaxy S IV is now the world's most anticipated, upcoming smartphone model Smartphones for the masses low cost models powered by Android should get even more widespread Ubuntu Mobile should go live:paving the way for a growing tech-oriented market share, and bridging the gap between mobile devices and desktop computers. Ubuntu powered smartphones should soon double as actual pocket-sized computers Microsoft Surface Microsoft should carve a niche for itself and achieve more significant mobile market share, as windows 8 gains more adepts, Even though Apple is no longer the "King of Smartphones", that's only because the market is expanding: their sales figures for 2012 have actually increased, compared to the previous year. As such, in 2013 they should stay focused in upkeeping their dominance of the high-end market. There's also a good chance they'll soon release a new class of device: the rumored iWatch, which should help reassert their role as innovation leaders.
