Samsung Galaxy S III takes the stage

Samsung Galaxy S III
The long-awaited Galaxy S III smartphone arrived on stage in London on Thursday.

Samsung Electronics Co. is calling their newest device "a new concept" for smartphones that'll recognize your voice and understand your intentions to make everyday life easier.

The Galaxy S III is running Android 4.0, also known as Ice Cream Sandwich, and sports a 8-megapixel rear camera, along with a 1.9 megapixel front-facing camera.

The iPhone, which has a 3.5-inch display, will have to take a back seat to the 4.8-inch display on the Galaxy S III. The earlier Galaxy S II only had a 4.3-inch display.

It also has some other features that are aimed at the iPhone, such as "S Voice" voice commands, which appears similar to Siri on iPhone, but goes a step further by detecting the user's motions to make phone calls. According to Samsung, just lift the Galaxy S III to your face if you decide to call instead of messaging them.

The Galaxy S III will be on the market in Europe for a while, before coming to the United States. At this point, there is no word on cost or carrier support, but I imagine AT&T, Verizon and Sprint will be waiting for the latest potential iPhone killer.

    reѕpοnse when I eѕpecіally enјoу a poѕt οn a blog or I have ѕomething to cont
    ribute to the ԁіscussion.

    Usually іt's triggered by the fire displayed in the post I browsed. And after this article %BLOG_TITLE%. I was actually excited enough to create a thought ;) I do have 2 questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or do a few of the remarks appear like they are left by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are writing on additional online social sites, I would like to keep up with you. Would you list all of your community pages like your twitter feed, Facebook page or linkedin profile?
