AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s Samsung Galaxy S3 get their source code released

by: Bams SadewoJune 20, 2012

The Samsung Galaxy S3 forum on XDA-developers is by far one of the busiest forums there. We suspect things will hit overdrive soon with Samsung’s latest move of releasing the source codes for several US models of the Galaxy S3.

Coinciding nicely with the forthcoming release of Samsung Galaxy S3 in the US, specifically for AT&T and T-Mobile, you can now download the source code of the AT&T and T-Mobile variants of the phone from Samsung’s open source portal.  The SGH-I7447M is the AT&T model, while the SGH-T999V is the T-Mobile’s one. Both files are about 214MB in size and can be downloaded once you pass the grueling Q&A questioning from the staff. Just [...]

First Sprint Galaxy S3 TV ad airs, claims “the next big thing is here”

by: Chris SmithJune 20, 2012

Samsung posted on its YouTube channel its first TV commercial for the Galaxy S3. The short 15-second clip, entitled “The Next Big Thing Is Here,” shows one of the features of the handset in action, Pop Up Play, or watching a video while performing another task on the large 4.8-inch touchscreen display – in this case texting. This sort of TV-like picture-in-picture feature will also work when browsing the web, writing emails and performing other tasks.

While this particular ad ends with Sprint’s logo, and a reminder that Sprint is the only carrier of the Big Four to still allow users to sign up for new unlimited data plans, the Galaxy S3 will [...]

Delays and staggered releases for the Sprint and T-Mobile Samsung Galaxy S3

by: AdrianJune 20, 2012

If you thought Samsung’s marketing campaign ahead of the Galaxy S3 launch was crazy, wait until you hear about the complete madness surrounding the US release of the new Sammy flagship device!

Sprint and T-Mobile, two of the American carriers expected to have the S3 up for sale on June 21, are experiencing issues with “overwhelming demand and limited supply”. In other words, many of you might have to wait a few extra days to get your grubby hands on what has been called the greatest Android phone ever.

Sprint Samsung Galaxy S3 release delays

Sprint has been the first of the two carriers to come forward with the supply issues, and, while some of you may be [...]

Sprint 4G LTE network tested ahead of launch, not perfect but found promising

by: Chris SmithJune 19, 2012

 

Sprint, the nation’s third largest mobile operator will also be the third carrier of the Big Four to roll out its 4G LTE network in the country, with the company expected to turn on its high-speed data network in six U.S. cities including Atlanta, Baltimor, Dallas, Houston, Kansas City and San Antonio by the end of the year.

In case you’re wondering, Sprint already has a variety of LTE-ready smartphones, and just as expected they’re all Android devices. However, the Samsung Galaxy Nexus, the LG Viper 4G and the HTV EVO 4G can only take advantage of Sprint’s 3G network, which is rather slow when compared to the competition. And lets not [...]

Samsung Galaxy S3 vs LG Optimus 4X HD – head to head comparison [video]

by: ClaytonJune 18, 2012

The Galaxy S3’s presence is currently being felt throughout the world. With the S3, Samsung has easily produced one of the hottest smartphones to ever hit the market. Destined to shine, the Galaxy S3 bears the specs that help it handily beat out nearly any phone on the market. But, despite its prowess, Samsung’s superphone is facing some top-notch competition. Competitor HTC, with their One series phones, obviously aims to steal the spotlight from the Galaxy S3. But, who would expect the not-so-prominent LG to throw a quad-core behemoth into the mix? One that gives Sammy a run for their money, at that!

Not yet slated for a U.S. release, the LG Optimus 4X HD has [...]

CyanogenMod 9 and AOKP come to the Galaxy S3

by: Gary SimsJune 18, 2012

For those who have Samsung’s new Galaxy S3 Android super phone but want something closer to the vanilla Android experience, rather than the heavily customized UI provided by Samsung, then here is some good news for you. The S3 is now part of the official CyanogenMod 9 nightly build process and will eventually receive an official stable version of CyanogenMod 9 when it is released.

Due to the hard work of XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD, the Galaxy S3 has been added to the listed of supported CyanogenMod 9 devices. Initial reports are that the firmware is stable and highly functonal, however there are a few minor issues:

Galaxy S3 owners on all Canadian carriers will get the free 50GB of Dropbox storage

by: Bams SadewoJune 18, 2012

Unlike certain carriers in the US that are denying future owners of the Galaxy S3 their Samsung-given right of 50GB of free Dropbox storage, all Canadian folks will get their free 2-year cloud storage upon purchasing the Galaxy S3.

Mobile Syrup has gotten in touch with Samsung directly and received the following confirmation:

“New GS III users will receive a basic 2GB of free space with Dropbox (It is permanent). When they create their own Dropbox account or link their existing account to Samsung Apps, the user will receive 48GB more space through a promotional offer, for a total of 50GB. This is available for 2yrs. “

So yes, the Dropbox offer will stand [...]

Samsung and Apple got 90% of smartphone profits in Q1 2012

by: Chris SmithJune 16, 2012

Samsung and Apple, while bound by a multi-billion dollar business partnership, are also fierce enemies, especially in the mobile space where the two companies are competing both in the smartphone and tablet businesses.

Recent research studies that Samsung managed to move past Apple to become the number one smartphone maker in the world, but the race is very tight, and we’re not looking at a complete Samsung win yet.

What’s clear is that the two corporations are making a lot of money off of their mobile divisions, and a new study from ABI Research shows that between them Samsung and Apple managed to get 90% of smartphone profits in the [...]

Samsung Galaxy S3 delayed in Canada due to “unprecedented global demand”

by: Bogdan PetrovanJune 15, 2012

In just a short paragraph, Samsung has just crushed the dreams of countless Galaxy S3 fans in Canada. OK, not really crushed their dreams, but still, I bet it’s irritating to have to wait an extra week to get the S3.

Here’s the full statement:

Due to unprecedented global demand for the highly anticipated Samsung GALAXY S III, with more than 9 million carrier pre-orders to date, the date of availability for purchase of this device in Canada, is now June 27th. In advance of the GALAXY S III availability date, most carriers and retailers are offering customers the chance to register on-line for updates, and some partners are offering their customers the option to [...]
