Galaxy S3 launched in SA

Samsung Electronics’ highly anticipated flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S3, was launched in SA last night.  The phone has been available from mobile operator Vodacom since the end of last month, but MTN and CellC will now be adding the phone to their contract options after last night’s launch. In South Africa alone 50 000 orders were received before it’s release.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is an Android smartphone that was announced by Samsung on 3 May 2012 and the successor to the Samsung Galaxy S II. The device was released in 28 countries, including in Europe, on 29 May 2012, and in India and Malaysia on 31 May 2012.

If you’re interested in the technical stuff, you’ll find all the technical specs on Wikipedia or Samsung’s website. For objective reviews on the Galaxy SIII, read more on CNET.

    I bought the Galaxy III yesterday, and can confirm that Syncing (calendar, email etc.) is as easy as pie! Seamless.

    It even syncs the drafts folder!

    Prof Robinson, the ICS (Ice Cream Sandwich, 4.0) operating system upgrade, is available for the Galaxy II in South Africa. If you’re cell hasn’t prompted you to upgrade, you should contact your service provider for help, or take the cell phone into the store. It should not take very long to upgrade.

    The upgrade will allow the same syncing capabilities as what the SG III has, seeing as it is the same operating system.

    Hope that helps!

    Kind Regards

    I hope this version of the phone can syn with the SUN Outlook calendar, as the Galaxy 11 version cannot, which is most annoying. IT should check this.
