PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless They're here! Whether that excites you or not remains to be seen, but the Galaxy S4, which will most likely become the best selling Android smartphone of the year by a huge margin, has been reviewed by all the major sites, and there's lots of interesting conclusions in there - although I think most of you will get the gist.

Having a better version isn't enough

Why does no one ever learn?

Just having an S3/S4 but better isn't going to beat it. I don't understand how every manufacturer can basically turn out the same phone as Samsung's with occasionally better specs and expect to beat them.

This didn't work against the iPod, iPhone, Ragu (pasta sauce), Call of Duty, Coca-Cola... the list goes on.

If you like his style watch this week's Jimquisition.

You want to know how to beat the S4, don't just make a better S4, make something other. Re introduce the keyboard, make a truly desirable rugged phone (not just last years mid range spec). Try a wide variety of form factors and see what people like. Samsung did and it worked out pretty well for them.
