S is from slim and sexy: Samsung Galaxy S III might be 7mm thin

Much like iPhone 5, Galaxy S III is the phone which stirred everybody’s imagination and unnamed sources claim that and that, alimenting people’s dreams and hopes. This time, South Korea’s Electronic Times News claims that the Android 4.0 IceCream phone will enchant our eyes with its slim, sexy look. Even if it will boast a Liquipel waterproof nano coating, this will be only 7mm thick.

With its impressive specifications and operating system, the new Galaxy S III will soon become one of the most desired Android phones, a worthy rival for iPhone 5. It seems that we have to wait until May to see these with our own hungry eyes. For now, everything is just a well placed rumor into a sea of hope.

 

Carrier Carriage appeals to Android owners to help us all learn the truth about the carriers’ coverage and signal

Android owners are so dependent on this operating system that they can’t choose something else and if they do, they come back to their first love. But there is something they have to choose: the carrier that can provide the best coverage, service, support, price, etc. It all depends on where you live. Carriers always boast with more coverage than they can offer and you can’t just rely on them. For that we have Carrier Coverage.

After you download the application, you’ll send Carrier Coverage vital information about your location, carrier, signal strength, etc. They won’t gather too private data about you and they won’t exhaust your battery too much. You’re the one who chooses how much data you send. For the moment they only gathered 1750 users and it’s only available in North America.

 

Liquipel may waterproof Galaxy S III and iPhone 5

It seems that the new Galaxy S III will be not only smart and gorgeous, but also dumbproof, I beg your pardon: waterproof. I have friends who thought that a bath won’t hurt to their new Android phones, but guess what: clean is not always better. Now, these friends of mine can even take pictures under water, since the Liquipel coating makes their baby phones breathe under several meters of water pressure.

Another good news is that Liquipel offers a nano coating, which means that the handset will be protect inside and out. You won’t be able to guess the degree of protection your phone was given by merely looking at it, since Liquipel offers a nano coating. This might affect the insurance coverage of the phone, the same source discloses.

The story seems quite plausible, having in mind that you can pay Liquipel around $60 and they can provide your phone a quite reliable waterproof coating, which is a fairly simple operation. The cost per unit would be sensibly reduced when it comes to mass production.

Another fact worth be mentioning here is that this seems to be the kind of thing Apple adores to do. iPhone 3GS’s screen was offered an oleophobic coating about which Apple made a great fuzz. The waterproof coating could be again turned into major selling successes by Apple and Samsung.

Unfortunately, we’ll have to wait a little to see this miracle with our own eyes, considering the fact that Galaxy S III won’t make its apparition this February at Barcelona’s Mobile World Congress. Until then, handle your phone with extreme caution when you take it to the toilet with you.
