We're four days ahead of Samsung's Galaxy S IV announcement event in NYC, and some alleged images of the device have made their way onto a Chinese forum. Before we even discuss the potential legitimacy, though, let's not forget that Samsung was able to keep the GSIII under wraps until the very day it was ready to show it off to the world. The company shared how it did that shortly after the GSIII's release, where it detailed the extreme security measures used to ensure the device remained a mystery.

Back at Computex 2012 last year, ASUS showed off an 18" Windows 8 all-in-one desktop that could turn into a gigantic Android tablet simply by sliding the display out of the dock.
