Smartphone News Byte: Apple to Investigate Death of IPhone 5 User

by Wochit 1:09 mins

A Chinese woman has reportedly died after answering a call when her iPhone 5 was still charging. Apple has confirmed that it will investigate the cause of the woman's death. Microsoft can use all the help it can get right now. Nearly three years following its launch, Windows Phone's share of the global smartphone market now sits at just 3.2%, according to market research firm IDC. Nokia's new $650 Lumia 1020 is an impressive camera phone, but the odds of it helping Microsoft's cause likely aren't good ? at least not until the price comes down. What may help, however, is getting more vendors on board with Windows Phone 8, and LG is currently working on its first Windows Phone 8 smartphone, according to a recent report. While other flagship models like the iPhone, Galaxy S4 and HTC One are made available across multiple carriers, Nokia is taking a different approach in the U.S. market.
