We’re here in burning hot and sunny New York City, just in time to attend Samsung’s Galaxy S III launch event. The device itself is featured prominently throughout the venue, including the five different things it is capable of doing that other smartphones on the market cannot — namely AllShare Group Cast, which can be used to share data and images among co-workers, then there’s ShareShot, which links up to six other Galaxy S IIIs on Wi-Fi connections and allows for seamless, nearly instantaneous image sharing. Then there’s the usual S Beam NFC sharing feature, Smart Stay (which ingeniously detects usage and stays bright during web browsing sessions), and finally Pop-Up Play, which allows for simultaneous video watching and texting (among other things). And as it has been established for quite a while now, the Galaxy S III contains a 1.5GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB of RAM, an 8 megapixel sensor with 1080p HD “Blu-Ray quality” recording, the fantastic 4.8-inch Super AMOLED HD display, and LTE in the States.
Samsung executives also made note of the Galaxy S III being their largest marketing plan ever, along with a partnership for the 2012 London Summer Olympics, as well as collaboration with AT&T.

During my time here, I’ve been getting hands-on time with the Galaxy S III on multiple carriers (Sprint, T-Mobile and AT&T, so far) and will be continuing the observations, as well as a review coming soon.
But before I sign this post off, we definitely have to say: Samsung has a winner for Android. Even a winner among all other smartphones on the market. This is some serious technology coming into one small, intelligent package.
