Samsung Galaxy S III

The day we've all been waiting for has finally arrived, and Samsung just unveiled its third-generation Galaxy smartphone. As expected, it's going by the moniker Galaxy S III, and it's stuffed to the gullet with cutting-edge hardware and software tweaks:

  • 4.8-inch 720p Super AMOLED HD Display
  • 1GB RAM
  • 16/32GB storage, 64GB version "available soon"
  • microSD Card slot
  • Eye Tracking
  • Smart stay: keeps the screen awake while you're looking at the display
  • S-Voice: advanced voice recognition, "like a good friend who listens attentively" -- definitely a strong competitor to Siri
  • Floating videos: lets you resize videos and move them around on the display whilst they float atop other windows. Nice!
  • 8MP rear shooter with zero shutter lag, 3.3 shots per second
  • Best Photo: takes a burst of eight shots, automatically chooses the best one
  • S Beam: Wi-Fi direct meets NFC
  • 1.9MP front camera with "face recognition" and HD video capabilities
  • 2100mAh Battery with Wireless Charging technology
  • Bluetooth 4.0 (LE)
  • Wi-Fi a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi HT40
  • NFC
  • 136.6 x 70.6 x 8.6mm, 133g
  • Android 4.0
At this point, it's safe to assume that it's packing a quad-core Exynos processor, though we're still waiting to hear the official word on clock speed.
  • Flip cover
  • Desk dock
  • Car dock
  • HDTV Adapter
  • Wireless charging
  • S Pebble: A "music companion" for your Galaxy S III (assume it's a remote control of some sort)

“With the Premium Suite upgrade, we wanted to add features that enrich users’ Note experience even more, including the great advantages of Android 4.0 and innovative applications for S Pen,” said JK Shin, President of Samsung Mobile. “We are committed to providing extraordinary experiences for consumers, and we will continue to provide new features and upgrades to enrich our offering.”

Android 2.3.5 Pushing Out To Orange Desire HD

Good news if you’re on Orange with a Desire HD, it appears that Android 2.3.5 is rolling out to with Sense 3.0.
With many users of HTC devices waiting for Ice Cream Sandwich this might seem a little dull but as always with network locked devices this is the norm, updates that take forever to be ‘tested’
Reader Robert has one and apparently it’s hitting his phone now, he sent a tweet about it not so long ago. Can’t see anything about it on the HTC or Orange website, if you have one and are yet to see anything about it do a check by hitting settings>about phone and system update.
Those with the sim free versions saw the update towards the back end of last year so the timing sounds about right.
