    We're pretty sure Samsung is going to announce the Galaxy S5 at MWC 2013 but what else will they announce? Anything with the potential to draw your attention more than upcoming S5 and existing Note 3?

    I imagine well see another galaxy gear to go along with it.

    As far as the knox-less option, I wouldn't count on it. ;)

    Rooters are a miniscule fraction of android users.

    True but we can influence allot of people around us, I converted all my family and friends to Android and all but one person in my office.

    I can quite easily make sure none of them buy another Samsung phone, we may be a minority but we are the ones the average user come to for phone advice and repairs. :D

    That may be true, but the average user would want the added security of Knox ;)

    The average user doesn't care about the extra security, most of them don't even know what knox is or care enough to find out.

    Samsung want the business users from Apple and what's left of Blackberry, it may work for them and it may not.

    Personally I think it's going to backfire in the long run, locking devices down was a reason not to not buy an iPhone, well now it's a reason not to buy a Samsung.

    On the s3 I just rooted it the same was as i did before. It still trips knox, but doesn't effect the phone at all.

    Then you've lost your warranty, Samsung are not stopping you from rooting and flashing.

    If something goes wrong with your device your on your own, also it's not good for the re-sale of the device, people pay less when they know you've been messing around with it and the warranty is void.

    If it's an old device which is out of warranty it obviously doesn't matter though.

    Has there been evidence of Samsung refusing to provide service on a device because of Knox

    Yes, but it seems to vary depending where your from. But the official word is your warranty is void so it's comes down to luck.
