Samsung has already taken 9 million preorders for Galaxy S III

Samsung has already taken 9 million preorders for Galaxy S III

If you had any doubts that Samsung’s next Galaxy smartphone was not all that anticipated then perhaps this bit of news might convince you otherwise.  According to Reuters, Samsung has already taken 9 million preorders for the handset, spread across more than 100 wireless carriers.

Samsung typically shoots out press releases touting numbers of sales figures for the Galaxy line of devices and expect nothing less for the Galaxy S III.  We cannot wait for our U.S. versions and figure the sales will be off the chart once it arrives stateside.

Although Samsung has not confirmed these figures we figure we’ll get something more official come launch time.

All Gingerbread ROMs Running On Phones

The Gingerbread source hasn’t even been released yet, and people are already trying to get Gingerbread on their devices. To make clear which devices are supported by certain ROMs, XDA-developers has made a list of working ROMs. Because they’re just ripped off the emulator, don’t expect even the basic stuff to work well, but you can play with it to see what the Gingerbread UI is like. Besides, new stuff is always cool to test, right?
