    Could Samsung have finally slipped up with their "Pentagon level" (yes... that is meant to be a comedic exaggeration) security surrounding the imminent release of "the Next Galaxy" phone? Samsung recently released their newest Samsung Mobile Unpacked 2012 app ahead of the May 3rd press event. The app is designed to help users going to the event with scheduling and other details to help keep the event organized and make things easier for attendees. On the front page descriptor of the app on the Google Play Store you can clearly see them reference the "galaxy s3 unpack."

    Here's the quote taken from the page:

    Hmmm... of course it would be far more surprising if they actually changed the name of the device to something other than the Galaxy S III, since that series has been such a "cash-cow" for them.

    It could have been a mistake, or it could simply be a marketing teaser to get journalists to write more stories about their product. Sometimes I feel like a fish on a hook... <sigh> :blush:

    Aren't those just keywords so that someone searching for the app with "galaxy s3" will find it? Even if they were not calling it the S3, they know the public has been calling it that and they would want to make sure people would find the app.

    yes... that is absolutely true, but it's still fun to speculate. ;)
