It’s time for another episode of Mobile Biz Buzz!

Key takeaways from this video:

  • Samsung has announced its new Galaxy S III smartphone.
  • Malware threats increase against the Android operating system.
  • Previews of RIM’s next moves abound at the BlackBerry 10 Jam conference.
  • Lawn Envy, now available in the App Store, helps you keep your grass healthy and beautiful.

The new Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone, announced in London, has a new rounded design inspired by nature. It houses a 1.4GHz quad-core processor and a 4.8-inch high-res Super AMOLED screen. S Voice, Samsung’s answer to Apple’s Siri, recognizes eight different languages for voice control. The Galaxy S III also uses its front-facing camera to keep the screen awake when you’re looking at it.

A malicious program called NotCompatible has been found attacking Android smartphones. It disguises itself as a security update. Even if you’re not an Android user, you might want to download an antivirus app to your device.

RIM has promised app developers that their apps for the upcoming BlackBerry 10 operating system will earn $10,000 in their first year. If they make over $1,000 but under $10,000, RIM will reimburse the developer for the difference.

Your yard work doesn’t have to be a guessing game with Lawn Envy. This $1.99 iOS app helps you diagnose any lawn problem, either automatically or with its “Ask An Expert” feature. Once the problem is identified, Lawn Envy will help you resolve the issue.
