Hottest Android news and rumors for week ending Jan. 18

Jon Gold | Jan. 18, 2013
After a CES week during which the Android world was all a-twitter over a device that wasn't even revealed at the show, the previously hyperactive Galaxy S IV rumor mill has quieted down, mostly. It's likely to only be a momentary respite, however, as the device is heavily tipped to be released at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona next month.

Android Police has what it says is an internal Sprint document, which asserts that the company plans to offer a $400 device credit to new family plan customers who port at least one line in from a competitor. The deal's supposedly set to roll out tomorrow, so you don't have long to wait, if you're interested.

UPDATE:  Since this article first appeared, Qualcomm has contacted its original publishers UnwiredView and Network World with some points of clarification, the main one being that Paul Jacobs' remarks re Samsung's Exynos 5 Octa processor (above) were actually aimed instead at hype over multi-core SoCs in general. In addition, Jacobs did not use the words "misleading" or "publicity stunt" with reference to to the Exynos 5 Octa processor, Qualcomm representatives have said. These words had been introduced into the story due to some translation errors.
