I don’t know what it is, but I love watching Escalator fails! This one looks like it’s in slow motion…but it isn’t. Just a really slow progression to epic escalator failure. Source – JJ.am Pin It
I wouldn’t have wanted to be in his shoes! At the same time, put the damn camera down already!
Samsung let the world know that it plans on announcing and unveiling the next Galaxy device (Galaxy S III) on May 3rd 2012. The event will take place in London at a press conference by invite. This happens to be the next Samsung’s Mobile “Unpacked” event, where in past events, Samsung has not only focused on one device launch, but has shown their next wave of mobile products, including software upgrades and apps.
The Galaxy S III is believed to be the name of the next Galaxy device, despite it not specifically being named on the invite seen above. Regardless, the Galaxy S III device is rumored to have a huge 4.8inch Super AMOLED HD touchscreen with full 1080p display capabilities. Other specs include an 12 megapixel rear camera, 2 megapixel front facing camera, 1.5GHz quad-core Exynos processor (not the Tegra 3), and a unibody ceramic casing as opposed to the plastic casing from earlier Galaxy devices. It will be running Android 4.0.4 ICS at the time of launch, which has been expected to drop into most carriers sometime in June 2012.

Above you can see a new rendering of the Samsung Galaxy S III that we should see later this year. This one has a dedicated Home button similar to the Galaxy S II, and two softtouch buttons on either side of it. The screen is said to be a 4.8 inch SuperAMOLED Plus HD screen. Other specs we should see include a 12 megapixel rear camera capable of shooting 1080p HD videos, a 1.5GHz quad-core Exynos processor and a full ceramic body rather than the thin plastic we are used to seeing on the Galaxy S devices previous.
Adding to the hype of looking at the next best thing to the iPhone 4S, Samsung’s Chief Executive in China Kim Young-Ha made comments that the Galaxy S III would be arriving in April 2012, rather than May which is the current rumor. He did not specify where it would launch in April, but perhaps it will launch in Samsung’s homeland of Korea first, then make it’s way to North America in May. Either way, we’re supposed to hear about the official launch dates over Samsung’s Twitter page first, and anything

The Samsung Galaxy S II smartphone is Samsung’s best selling Android device to date. While many are eagerly awaiting the successor to that model in the Galaxy S III, due out by Summer 2012, Galaxy S II owners are waiting for Android 4.0 updates.
We had heard back in early January about Samsung’s commitment to upgrading the Galaxy S II to Ice Cream Sandwich in Spring 2012, and now that March is almost over, people are starting to get anxious. Samsung started releasing Galaxy S II Android 4.0 updates in Europe last week. This gave many users in North America a glimmer of hope, knowing that the updates would soon make their way over seas.
While the Android 4.0 update has not been released in North America, nor is there a scheduled date for the upgrade, users can take comfort in seeing that Samsung has released the source code for Android 4.0 to the world. This means we’ll start seeing some creative custom ROMs for the Galaxy S II in a short while as developers start downloading the code made available today.
