  • It was out as a Kies update a few days ago, was wondering why no one reported it
  • Update my first comment, 4.1.1 (Jellybean) was out as a Kies update a few days ago, so all US S3's can get Jellybean now
  • They're really working hard to ensure there's not reason to buy any iPhones this holiday season. Can't help but applaud the effort. I was on the Metro this morning and the passenger next to me saw me using my S3 to read and post in this forum and said something to the effect of, "That's a neat phone, I like the screen...." I must it admit it was with a little childish pride that I told her what it was and showed it to her. I did, however initially think, "How could you not know this is an S3?"
