How the Samsung Galaxy S III Will Work

Author's Note

As an Android user, I can't wait to check out the Galaxy S III. The Galaxy S II was an amazing phone when it was released, but it took six months to make it to the United States. By that time, bigger and better devices were on the horizon. I'm excited to see how the Galaxy S III compares to the recently released Nexus device -- hopefully Samsung keeps its TouchWiz skinning to a minimum and lets Android 4.0 shine through.
