Hey peoples! MAN, I seriously need to allocate more of my time for you guys :D
So, this is just a quick round up on the great leaked announcement. Google, will be getting really busy this fall. Firstly, we have the 2012 I/O event which is gonna be epic! They will cover Android, Chrome, Google+ and the remainder of Google products. That's 3 days of Google bliss :P
Anyway, back to Android! It all began with HTC's Nexus One, then we moved to Samsung with the Nexus S, and Samsung came around again for the Galaxy Nexus. However, this time the BIG G has something else planned. He is aiming to get up to 5 devices ready this fall. Five brand new Nexus products which will be sold on the Play Store. Yes, on the Google Online Play Store ALSO btw if you live in the U.S, you can get a fresh Galaxy Nexus, unlocked, for $399. So go ahead and save $200 from those damn Carriers.
Android 5.0, is said to be able to dual boot your device straight into Chrome OS, which is a Fully functional Browser, with Flash 11.2 support as well as Google products such as GMail, Maps, Drive in Online and Offline modes. I think that it's a pretty neat feature, judging by the 3 second cold boot up :D
So, what do you guys think? I personally LOVE this idea! In the end, nothing beats a Pure Google device.
My speculations include the following Manufacturers:
ASUS (Most likely true)
Motorola...I know...but that's just because Google owns the company lol

|Props to Engadget for the Pics|
So basic specs right off the bat include a 4.8" SuperAMOLED HD display with Gorilla Glass 2. GG2 can handle more pressure than the OG, and it is 14% thinner. Next up we move to the CPU and my "wish" becomes a reality! It is using a Samsung Exynos Quad core chip clocked at 1.4GHz. Benchmark wise, this CPU is dangerously powerful and bites approximately all devices to dust. I actually wanna see it go against LG's flagship, the G4X HD which comes with the Tegra 3. After that we have the usual 1GB of RAM which should technically suffice for any apps you like running simultaneously. We also have an 8MP camera which films 1080P but can also takes Pictures while recording. Basically the Software part of the Camera has been updated to contain some sweet features. The front facing camera has been upgraded to a 1.9MP HD one so video calling would be....very realistic lol
White and Blue.
Samsung tried real hard in the software department for this release. TouchWiz has been redesigned and of course the ICS goodies are baked in. Another trick they had under their sleeve was the "S" apps.One example is S Voice, which is a Siri like app. You can tell your phone, to Turn on and it will obey. One more example is SmartStay, which uses the Front Facing camera to see if you are looking at the screen. If yes, it will turn on and if not, BOOM, it turns off, so battery savings for the Win!
If you would like to get the SGSIII, it will be available on the 29th of May 2012, so just round the corner! And all new users will get 50GB of Cloud storage with Dropbox for 2 years, so that's a plus :)
NOW, the cherry on the cake, is the Cheesy Commercial for the Samsung Galaxy SIII...hope you like it :P
