    So we're starting our live coverage of the Samsung Galaxy S III launch in England. I'm here in NYC and will be listening to Samsung's stream of the event.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:40:53 PM
    Jessica Dolcourt will be joining me shortly from San Francisco.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:42:44 PM
    Kent German from San Francisco will chime in as well. And Roger Cheng will also pipe in every now and again as well.

    12 mp camera!? Seems to be the most controversial spec.
  • jnoodlz 5/3/2012 5:44:51 PM
    Ohhh yeahh..lets get this started :-)
  • jgmoore1701 5/3/2012 5:46:40 PM
    And what about the screen size: 4.6, 4.7, or 4.8?
  • Roger Cheng 5/3/2012 5:46:47 PM
    Hello all, Roger Cheng checking in from Los Angeles.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:47:09 PM
    @Jgmoore we will have to see. But I think it's going to be a good size screen.
  • Roger Cheng 5/3/2012 5:47:13 PM
    There's been a lot of buzz and speculation about the upgrades to the Galaxy S III.
  • Roger Cheng 5/3/2012 5:47:42 PM
    The Galaxy franchise is one of the main reasons Samsung has been so successful at selling Android phones, avoiding the pitfalls that have tripped up so many of its competitors.
  • Roger Cheng 5/3/2012 5:48:10 PM
    Outside of the next iPhone, the Galaxy S III is the most highly anticipated phone launch this year.
  • Jedifarmboy 5/3/2012 5:48:38 PM
    Here's hoping the screen is Super AMOLED Plus!
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:48:52 PM
    @jedifarmboy I hear you! I would like to see that too.
  • jgmoore1701 5/3/2012 5:49:15 PM
    You're right, Roger, about the S3 being highly anticipated...I was all set to buy the Razr Maxx until I heard about the S3!
  • Roger Cheng 5/3/2012 5:49:30 PM
    Yeah, the screens have always been solid on the Galaxy phones. I'm hoping Samsung keeps up that tradition.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:49:40 PM
    But I think the HTC One X at AT&T is going to give this phone a run for it's money.
  • Roger Cheng 5/3/2012 5:50:02 PM
    @jgmoore1701 I hear you...I'm always waiting for the NEXT GREAT PHONE.
  • muunda 5/3/2012 5:50:04 PM
    I hope that they announce something surprising, that no one has expected, and that has not been mentioned in any rumors
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:50:39 PM
    Not sure if anyone else is listening to the soothing music on Samsung's site for the webcast, but it's making me very sleepy. I feel like I'm at a spa!
  • Chi-town 5/3/2012 5:50:45 PM
    I disagree with Roger...I believe this phone has been more anticipated than this year's iPhone =)
  • Dream 5/3/2012 5:50:50 PM
    Whay do people care so much about iphone ? Apple tries to control everything. I love andriod
  • Bodojo 5/3/2012 5:50:53 PM
    It should be a decent leap rather than an evolution IMHO
  • SlimShady 5/3/2012 5:50:59 PM
    Am I right in thinking that this will be unveiled with the new Touchwiz?
  • zidhu 5/3/2012 5:51:01 PM
    hope the battery life is good as well
  • diego 5/3/2012 5:51:09 PM
    Do you have any info about verizon possibly carrying the samsung galaxy s III?
  • Anne Dujmovic 5/3/2012 5:51:35 PM

    The invitation to the event

  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:51:41 PM
    @diego I am hoping we hear something about carrier support here. But since it's being launched in the U.K., they might not say anything about US carriers yet.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/3/2012 5:52:21 PM
    Greetings, everyone! I'm a little too excited for this announcement.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:52:36 PM
    Here is where the live stream is supposed to be:
  • muunda 5/3/2012 5:52:37 PM
    i hope they reveal a new touchwiz, and upgrade all of the sII devices this month :)
  • Nazim 5/3/2012 5:52:54 PM
    Hi,all! i was going to buy HTC One X but after SGS 3 date were unveilde decided to wait ! looking forward to see how does it look and its specs
  • Roger Cheng 5/3/2012 5:53:01 PM
    @Chi-town Sorry, Apple's next iPhone definitely has this beat in terms of buzz. I'm not saying it'll be a better phone, only that more people are interested in the iPhone. Just look at the sales figures for the iPhone 4S vs. Galaxy phones -- they don't compare.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/3/2012 5:53:15 PM
    @muunda I agree re: TouchWiz. In my opinion, it's one of the only things holding Samsung back.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:53:21 PM
    @Nazim I'm with you. I need a new phone myself and I'm waiting to see what this one looks like too. But I really like the HTC One X.
  • jgmoore1701 5/3/2012 5:53:28 PM
    Me too, Jessica!
  • Chris Angle 5/3/2012 5:53:34 PM
    The SGS3 will be the iPhone killer! I am super excited for this phone!
  • saber_man 5/3/2012 5:53:51 PM
    what are people's opinion between Sense 4.0 and Touchwiz?
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:54:00 PM
    Ok we are starting!
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/3/2012 5:54:14 PM
    Looks like Samsung's pre-show has begun. Early--that's so refreshing.
  • Marguerite Reardon 5/3/2012 5:54:56 PM
    The spokeswoman on the video is really excited. And now we're going to see a video about how other people on the streets of London are excited too.
  • sidbandhu 5/3/2012 5:54:58 PM
    I feel so excited, looks like some movie is about to start :P
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/3/2012 5:55:07 PM
    @sidbandhu It really does feel like that, doesn't it?
  • Jessica Dolcourt 5/3/2012 5:55:48 PM
    Ok, so here's the thing. Samsung usually launches the Euro/global version first and we here in the US languish in our jealously. Luckily, we have the HTC One X to distract us.
  • benny 5/3/2012 5:56:23 PM
    i hope the new samsung galaxy will have a better battery and a super AMOLED display that will blow us away
