    To say that the new Samsung Galaxy S III will be an unmitigated success, would be like betting that humans need air to breathe, at least if you factor in some recent pre-sales numbers from Samsung. Apparently, pre-orders for the SGS3, which will soon start launching to about 100 global carriers, have already passed 9 Million! To put it in perspective, this is half way toward the 20 Million that the Galaxy S 2 sold after its full retail launch!

    When the SGS3 finally does hit retail shelves, we could be seeing sales numbers of epic proportions. According to the source of this article, Samsung has ramped up production at their factories and are currently making about 5 Million SGS3's per month. It would seem that Samsung has really built a huge brand following for their hardware. Could they eventually topple the popularity dominance of the iPhone? Only time will tell...

    Damn shame that I will have to jump ship to buy one. Where is Verizon in all of this? Oh, yeah, that's right, they're busy doing away with my unlimited data plan.

    Why can't you pre order phones on Verizon like At&t?

    Don't get me wrong. My more I see and read about the SGSIII the more I love it. But I've always had a place for Blur and Motorola is my brand of choice I think I'd also rather have a metal bodied handset over the Polycarbonate body of the SGSIII. Nothing against the material. Metal just feels better to me. I might turn my Rezound in for the SGSIII. But my Droid X will certainly be replaced by this Razr HD. :)

    Sweet Jeezy..Lol I love it. My words exactly. But something about the concept of the whole nature thing. They were listening to my input on themes and such on these forums to some dev buddies of mine. They decided to incorporate it into a whole UI enhancement for one of their flag ships? Lol
