Samsung introduces the Galaxy S III, with a riverstone shape and wireless chargi

What do you get when you mix together a 4.8" 720P AMOLED screen, 8 megapixel camera, quad-core processor, a 2100mAh battery, a smooth riverstone-inspired shape, and a wireless charging system? The , of course. Yeah, those latter two could have been said about the original Palm Pre as well, and we'll admit we take issue with Samsung's misleading "first wireless resonant charger", which we have no doubt the uniformed will take to mean "first wireless charger", even though Palm crossed that bridge more than three years ago. It's like Christopher Columbus discovering the Americas... centuries after the Vikings.

Disgruntled grousing aside, the Samsung Galaxy S II and Samsung's latest implementation of Android 4.0 and TouchWiz do qualify as impressive. It's a high-powered device that serves as an effective counter to . We're also pleased to see , with the Galaxy S III packing new features like WiFi direct, a camera that can tell if you're looking at the phone (and turns the screen off when you're not), facial recognition for social networks, picture-in-picture for videos while using apps, a Siri competitor dubbed "S Voice" (how original), and much more.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is dues to come out later this month, hitting the US in June, in both HSPA+ and LTE variants. Presumably it'll hit most, if not all, US carriers, hopefully without we've been watching our Android brethren cope with over the past few years.

      Today I switched to WOW internet service and dropped ATT and DirectTV.  I purchased Sling, but now can't add it to my LG TV because there is no option that I can find to add an APP like Sling.  There is no LG Content Store.  What do I do?

      I have a problem updating or installing amazon prime video app. When hitting the update button (after several factory resets) it simply says "Application has not been installed. Try again" after it stops.
      This possibly happened due to a cancelled update a week ago.
      Any ideas how to fix this? Factory reset doesn't work. App won't run without update, and update won't run.

      I have an SM9010PLA just over a year old. Since a month or so ago whenever the TV is switched on all the apps pop up along the bottom of the screen as if I've pressed the home button. They stay there for about 30 seconds unless I select TV or point the pointer to the screen and click. I thought it might be a system upgrade problem and I've since checked if there are any further upgrades and there aren't. I reset the TV to factory settings which said it would also delete all the apps I had installed - which it didn't.
      Anyone else had this and/or know a solution.

      Is there a way to stabilize the screen time when the screen is stopped .. meaning I need to keep the screen for a longer period before it goes into this sleep state and I am following YouTube or any application because I need more time to move to the next screen, but the TV returns to the sleep state by itself?  ?  thanks for answering
