It was only a couple of months ago that Sony introduced its new budget smartphone - the Xperia tipo - but after implementing a few spec boosts and increasing the size of the screen, they're ready for round 2, and this time they've brought the Xperia miro into the ring.

There's no doubt that the miro is still very much a budget smartphone, it's available for £150 SIM-free, but Sony has managed to make it look and feel the part thanks to a nice plastic material covering the back, and an LED which shines between the screen and capacitive touch buttons each time you turn on the display.

The CyanogenMod team has been making good progress towards the latest, stable version of its ROM - CyanogenMod 10 - but there's still time for more features to be added before its eventual release.

One of those features is a root-enabled file manager, which was announced on the Cyanogen Google+ page a few hours ago. Judging from the screenshots, it looks to blend in seamlessly with other CyanogenMod features and the rest of the Android OS, with a really nice looking interface.

apple-still-required-to-run-samsung-didnt-copy-us-ads-in-the-uk-after-appeals-ruling

After months of media hype and courtroom battles, Samsung was finally ordered to pay Apple $1.05 billion by a U.S. court a couple of months ago, for infringing the company's design patents. On the other side of the pond, however, things haven't been quite as clear cut, with a UK judge ordering Apple to publish ads stating that Samsung did not copy the iPad at all.

Today, Apple has posted a statement on its UK website saying just that, but its PR team has also taken the opportunity to say a few more words about Samsung as well.

FIFA may be the undisputed king of football games on the console, but when it comes to mobile gaming, it's a totally different ball game.

Gameloft will be hoping that Real Football 2013 (also known as "Real Soccer 2013" in the U.S. store) can take advantage of FIFA 13's delayed arrival to the Play store this year, and amass as many downloads as possible, but how does it compare to its rivals?

If you're suffering from a bit of FIFA envy, as you wait for the latest version of the world's most popular football game to reach Android, you'll be glad to know that Gameloft has finally released Real Football 2013 (or 'Real Soccer 2013' in the U.S.), and it's available for free from the Play Store.

Last season's version of the game amassed over 5 million downloads, so Gameloft will be hoping that their latest title performs just as well.

Intuit, the company behind Quicken for Windows and Mac, has released a free mobile companion app for users of Quicken 2013 for Windows.

Available on both phones and tablets, Quicken for Android allows you to sync your accounts over from your desktop so that you can keep an eye on your finances whilst you're on the move.

Rather than just offering a stripped down version of the existing desktop application, Intuit has built most of the features that are available on the desktop into the mobile app; you can view your spending by category, with graphs available on the tablet version, and create alerts to notify you of activity on your account.
