The camera does lack an underwater mode, which Samsung offers in the S4 Active, a just-released water-resistant variant of its flagship phone. In that mode, you use the volume buttons rather than the touch screen to take photos. Without that, you’re limited to starting video before you jump in a pool with Sony’s phone.

This is really good for us as consumers. It means that retailers will be more willing to make deals and offers some serious enticements to get us into their store and keep us as customers.

According to an April report by Convergence Consulting Group, 800,000 U.S. households got rid of their Cable TV service. Many predict this number will rise even more in the coming years. Seems consumers want to view their shows without any constraints; not having to rely on schedules or a cable box in their Entertainment Theater. They want their shows on their phones, pads, gaming consoles, Blu-ray Players, and on demand.
