A message from the Arquillian in me – “Deliver the Galaxy”

OK, you may have to be a bit of a Sci-Fi fan to know what the hell I am talking about in the title, for those unsure a clue, the 3rd installment is out this Summer of the film series in which this message is sent.

Anyway onto the true context of today’s blog – The Samsung Galaxy SIII.

We have them on pre-order, we are excited, it seems that now is the time to get your large touchscreen smartphone product into the market before apple announces iPhone 5.

The 3 that have caught my eye have been, the Sony Xperia S (the phoenix from the flames?) the HTC One X (boy that is a big screen) and the launch last week of the Samsung Galaxy SIII (William Tell aiming to shoot apple from people’s heads).

All 3 use the android operating system with the HTC and Samsung using the latest 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform and the Sony eligible very soon for upgrade to this level.

Now from this humble bloggers point of view it is always horses for courses and personal preference around this sort of device and there are some things to look out for, the Sony has a screen issue on certain handsets with a particular build date but the guys at Sony will help you sort this here http://www.sonymobile.com/gb/support/contact-us/, the HTC will not suit people with little hands because that screen is so darn big, and with the Samsung you will have to wait until the end of the month just like the rest of us and for the early adopters you will be paying iPhone money for a SIM free device (over £500 inc VAT)

Regardless of the money and the wait, I want one, the interface looks brilliant, (although maybe not as intuitive as the Windows Mobile live tiles) and most importantly it will stop me looking like one of these
