Ten Things You Need to Know About Samsung Galaxy S III
9 million Galaxy S III devices were preordered within about two weeks of its introduction in early May.
It looks as if the Samsung Galaxy S III will soon emerge as the "next big thing" for the bring-your-own-device (BYOD) generation. That means the IT folks need to prepare for the onslaught. Sprint and T-Mobile had planned to offer the smartphone on June 21. But "overwhelming demand" has delayed that debut. With the tagline, "designed for humans/inspired by nature," the Android product appears to be attempting to out-Apple Apple in terms of intuition and user-friendliness. As a result, the voice-controlled device has future customers practically giddy, thrilled about its "smart stay" awareness of when it's being looked at so the screen never dims at inopportune times. ("It waits until you're asleep," Samsung promises.) If you start messaging a colleague, then decide to speak instead, it will dial the number for you just by bringing the phone to your ear. And — IT managers will appreciate this — it's apparently secure enough for business enterprises. So to help you prepare for the Samsung Galaxy S III's arrival in your enterprise, here are 10 things you should know about the device. (Once you've accommodated this new mobile "star," watch out: The highly anticipated iPhone 5 reportedly will be available sometime between August and October.)
