We also confess that we are totally confused as to which ones are the best and will be around for a while, and which ones are just flashes in the pan. There are just so many choices....

In the coming months, we will try some of the more worthy entries on the market and let you know what we think of them. (Here's an external link to a great article about the new Samsung Galaxy S4 smartphone.) EZI
