I know most of you weren’t able to make it to London for yesterday’s big event. Our own Chris Stewart did and he said it was amazing as pretty much all Samsung events are. Of course it was streamed live for anyone to watch, but in case you missed it, Samsung has made it easy for you. Just hit the source link below and you can see all the fun. Even if you’ve seen it before, it might be worth another look since there’s always things you catch the second time around. So was it worth the wait?

Did the Samsung Galaxy S III meet expectations?

by Robert Nazarian on
tagged ,

Whenever anything gets a tremendous amount of hype, it’s usually a letdown more than not. The Galaxy S III had a lot of hype over the last few months so the question is did it meet expectations?

As far as the specs, it came up a little short. I think a lot of people were expecting more megapixels, but honestly 8MP is fine as long as it takes great pictures. Knowing Samsung’s history, I don’t think we should have any worries here. The quad-core processor is on par as well. The letdown has to be the display. Unfortunately we didn’t get a “Plus” after Super AMOLED, so that means PenTile. It will still be a great display, but unfortunately it won’t be as good as the HTC One X’s Super LCD 2 display.

Samsung Galaxy S III Sign-Up Page Goes Live, Lists All the Top U.S. Carriers

You didn’t think we were done with the Galaxy S III news did you? OK, good because this time it’s something you might want to pay attention to – the official GSIII sign-up page. Sammy has launched the phone’s sign-up page for everyone who want’s more device availability information as it is released. We still don’t know exactly all the carriers who are going to carry Sammy’s new flagship handset, but if the sign-up page is any indication you U.S. folks might be pleasantly surprised.

As it was with the Galaxy Nexus sign-up page, the GSIII’s page asks for your personal contact info along with your zip code and carrier preference. Among those carriers listed are; AT&T, Sprint, Verizon, T-Mobile, C-Spire Wireless, U.S. Cellular, and Metro PCS. Now this doesn’t mean for sure that all those carriers will get the device, it’s just nice to see when your carrier is a listed option. Don’t forget, we’ve already seen the device listed in a Verizon User Agent profile so that one is most likely in the bag. We are also hearing that the GSIII should land in the U.S. in June so hopefully we will have more details very soon. Stay tuned and we will fill you in as we learn more but in the meantime, head to the source link to get signed up for future information from Samsung themselves.

Vodafone UK To Carry 32GB Samsung Galaxy S III Model Exclusively At Launch

tagged , , ,

It’s only a few weeks before we see the launch of the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone in Europe, so it’s safe to run out to your local mobile carrier to grab the 32GB version, right? Wrong. Most carriers will likely carry a 16GB version of the device at launch, but there’s one carrier that has an exclusive model that will be available. Vodafone UK announced through its Twitter page that it will indeed carry the 32GB model exclusively, in addition to the standard 16GB model. It looks like Vodafone is trying to have the leg up on attracting customers to its network thanks its newfound exclusivity.

The 16GB and 32GB versions of the smartphone will be available on May 30th. Feel free to start drooling in the meantime.

Samsung & Dropbox To Offer 50GB Of Free Cloud Storage For Galaxy S III Owners

You want to know how Samsung intends on enticing potential customers now that it’s Galaxy S III smartphone is out? No, it isn’t the quad-core processor built-in nor the sweet lineup of accessories. My friends, Sammy is offering an attractive 50GB of free storage courtesy of Dropbox— similar to what HTC has done in the past. The key difference is HTC offered “only” 25GB, while Sammy is offering double the storage space.

Keep in mind as awesome as this is, it won’t last forever. Samsung and Dropbox will be offering this awesome promotion for Galaxy S III owners for a limited time only— owners who take advantage of this will have free storage for only 2 years. But hey— by the time 2 years comes around, we’ll probably be seeing a bigger and better promotion by then.

Those of us here in the U.S. felt a little left out today since nothing was mentioned about a U.S. release during the big unveiling. As I previously wrote, we can’t expect to see anything stateside for several months. The question is what carriers and what will be different? Samsung had this to say:

Samsung Mobile is planning a U.S. version of Galaxy S III, optimized for the fastest LTE and HSPA+ networks in the U.S., which will be available in the summer of 2012. Exact timing and retail channel availability is not being announced at this time. We believe the Galaxy S III is the most anticipated product in the 20-year history of Samsung Mobile; therefore, we will continue to share information as it becomes available.
