Mobile Tracker uSwitch has a new handset sitting on top of its mobile chart and it’s none other than the Samsung Galaxy S3, which has knocked off the Apple iPhone 4S.
uSwitch bases its results on handset pre-orders and mobile searches. In May, Samsung’s new flagship stole the lead from Apple’s current blower.
The iPhone 4S didn’t hold top position for very long. Before the iOS handset topped the charts, the Galaxy S2 held top position for 11 consecutive months. The S3’s predecessor is still on top at third place.
Do you think the Samsung Galaxy S3 will hold top position as long as its predecessor the S2? Give us your thoughts.
If you’re a hacker, we have great news for you. The Korean tech giant Samsung has released the source code for its new flagship the Galaxy S3, which has been launched in 28 countries. No doubt, CyanogenMod hackers are already hard at work optimising CM9 for handsets such as the Galaxy S.
This is a surprising move by Samsung, since the Korean firm is known for lacking customer support when it comes to rolling out updates and releasing code. If ever you’re interested in downloading this source code, you can do so here. Alternatively, you can also get the source code on Android Police via Github.
Are you planning to make a custom ROM using the Samsung Galaxy S3 source code, or have you done it already? Let us know through a comment.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 is scheduled to be officially released in the UK on the 30th of May. However, according to Ubergizmo via Tweakers, the Pebble Blue version of the handset will be delayed due to issues in manufacturing. Tweakers, a Dutch blog, report that Samsung was forced to cancel 600,000 back orders of the said version due to unknown manufacturing problems.
If you’re looking to get your hands on the Pebble Blue version of the S3 in the UK, you don’t have anything to worry about. According to the report, the UK market will not be affected by the delay. In other markets, however, buyers will have to settle for the white version of the superphone.
