One of the most highly anticipated Android phones of the year is the Samsung Galaxy S III. This smartphone comes with a number of new features we haven't seen on other phones including S Voice (improved voice control functionality), new sharing features, NFC features including Samsung's new TecTiles, and more.

The hardware specifications for the Galaxy S III are impressive as well. The US variations of this phone feature a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED touchscreen (1280x720), a 1.5GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB RAM, 16 GB or 32 GB of internal memory, an 8MP rear-facing camera, a 1.9MP front-facing camera, and a 2100 mAh Lithium Ion battery. And all of the Galaxy S III smartphones run on Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich right out of the gate...

Can't wait to get my hands on two of these for me and my wife. I just wish that Sprint included the 800mhz as well as the 1900mhz radio into their model.

Nice doggie eh? That's Jen's sister's I think. Reportedly he was a real drag racer in his day! :)

Yup these are sweet phones it kinda sucks we don't get quad cores in the US at least not yet T-Mobile has them to but I am not able to upgrade yet and there more expensive than anyone else as well which really kinda is strange on T-Mobile but it your a new subscriber from what I understand it is free or well discounted.

I was tempted to switch over to a android based phone this year, and this was my number 1 pick. Instead, I went with another Iphone... i'm beginning to regret it. I just wish Samsung would offer me a trial to see if this thing would good for me!
