And so we find ourselves in some bizarre parallel universe where the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already on sale - before the April 11 global release date. Well, in South Korea, at least.
The other big story this week was of course the arrival of the HTC One (M8), which is already being hailed by some as the best thing since sliced iPhone. And after various delays, the HTC One 2013 finally got a taste of KitKat.
Next week I'm... not sure what's happening, but we'll write many a word about it, in any case.
Until then, happy weekending!
