Samsung to 'outclass' Apple with Galaxy S3 smartphone
30/05/2012 - South Korea's Samsung Electronics says it will start selling its newest smartphone in 28 countries as it seeks to cement its position as the world's top-selling mobile phone maker.

The Galaxy S3, unveiled in London earlier this month, will hit shelves on Tuesday in nations including Britain, France and the United Arab Emirates, the firm said in a statement.
The phone will be available in 145 nations by July via 296 wireless carriers, it added.
The third version of the Galaxy S series offers face-recognition technology and improved voice-activated controls as well as a more powerful processor that lets users watch video and write emails simultaneously.
It also has a 12.2cm screen that is 22 per cent larger than the S2, while it can detect eye movements and override the automatic shutdown if the user is looking at the screen.
Samsung shipped 44.5 million smartphones in the first quarter, exceeding the 35.1 million of US rival Apple, according to market researcher Strategy Analytics last month.
It said the Korean firm also overtook Nokia as the biggest maker of all types of mobile phone in the same period.
Samsung is now pinning its hopes on the S3 to further erode its rivals' market share before the expected new version of Apple's iPhone 5 this year.

As an N8 user unable to switch to a Samsung for a further 12 months unless I'm willing to buy it outside of contract, every piece of news about how wonderful the S3 is will be bittersweet for me. I look forward to meeting you in a year, S3.
