A pink Samsung Galaxy S III that recently showed up in South Korea has now been made official. It's only available for the South Koreans for now. The pink Galaxy S III includes 32 GB of storage. It'll be available tomorrow, on September 26. Obviously Samsung is aiming it at the younger crowd along with women.
The pink superphone will be available on all of Korea's three operators, but only 100,000 units will be produced. Maybe the company is hoping for some Apple-style lines outside of the stores tomorrow. We'll see how that plays out.
Samsung has also mentioned that it's managed to sell over 3 million Galaxy S III units in its home market alone. That's a pretty impressive feat in a country with 50 million inhabitants.
Walmart is once again proving that there is no better place to purchase your smartphone. Starting today, the Samsung Galaxy S 4 is available for pre-order in more than 3,500 Walmart stores nationwide, and will be offered at $168 with 2-year service contract from AT&T.
To secure the Galaxy S4, customers need to follow the following steps:
1. Purchase a $25 pre-order card which comes with a free $4.99 VUDU credit.
2. Wait for a Walmart associate to call when the phone arrives in the store.
Inventory of the Galaxy S 4 is not guaranteed on launch date. The fulfillment of pre-orders will be processed on a first come, first serve basis, which is subject to manufacturer availability and carrier launch dates.
3. Activate the phone with a T-Mobile, AT&T or Sprint service.
The $25 pre-order gift card will then be available to use like a gift card on any purchase the customer chooses.
Walmart is also offering the Samsung Galaxy S III for $39.88 with a two-year contract with Verizon Wireless or AT&T.
Vodafone has announced the Vodafone Smart III, its latest affordable Android handset for those on a budget.
Following the line of own-brand devices, the new Smart III comes with a 4-inch 800 x 480 pixel resolution display. That might make for a slightly soft rendering of the Android Jelly Bean operating system, but at this price you can hardly complain.
The Smart III features a 5 MP camera with LED flash and 720p HD video recording, a 1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 4 GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot, and all the usual connectivity options.
The Vodafone Smart III only priced at £95 on Pay as you go.
Samsung Galaxy Gear will only support Android 4.3 and up, leaving you with only the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 10.1 at launch. Samsung did announce that the Android 4.3 update for the Galaxy S III and Galaxy S 4 would be arriving in October, so soon there will be three supported devices for the Gear.
The reason behind this requirement is likely because Android 4.3 adds native support for Bluetooth LE (low-energy), and if you're still rocking a Galaxy S II, it's time for an upgrade.
There's always a chance that Gear support could come in the future, but we're certainly not counting on it, especially with this first-generation wearable. It's not clear if Galaxy Nexus devices will be supported when updated to Android 4.3 as well, but Samsung has confirmed that the Gear will work with a refreshed Galaxy S4.
Samsung has started offering a Galaxy Note 3 Olympic Games Edition - since the new Note is the official phone of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics, and it's been gifted to all participating athletes - although it looks like this is available only in the Netherlands for now, with no word on a wider availability.
The device is interestingly, restricted to Netherlands via KPN and will bring the same hardware but with a special Olympic Games-centric packaging and cover and chance to win skating training sessions or trip to Sochi where the Olympic Games will be held.
The Qualcomm Snapdragon-powered Galaxy Note 3 is available for free with a contract.

The game costs $3.48. To find out if your device is compatible and to download the game, check out the Google Play link below
The Facebook Home has received mixed reactions among those who have tried the "beta" application/launcher. While many approved of its smooth and convenient way of keeping tabs, others complained about difficulties accessing other applications and that they do not really have use for the launcher.
The Google Play Store has recorded at least 500,000 downloads almost a week since it was launched. This number seems quite disappointing, considering that FB users amount to over a billion individuals, showing how diminutive this number actually is compared to the total FB population. Many consider it grossly underperforming and even compared it to Instagram for Android, a photo social networking site that was downloaded a million times on its first day and has reached 5M downloads in less than a week since it was started.
On the other hand, many people were implying that the Facebook Home launcher was in beta and that the figures should not really concern Facebook officials that much, since only a few devices can actually use it as a launcher. It seems like they're missing the whole point of launching a beta test.
If it creates a significant interest and many people tried and LIKED it, then it will most possibly become a profitable launcher in application stores. However, with these kinds of figures, where testers posted less than stellar ratings, it will not be surprising if Facebook officials will overhaul it or write it off on their lists of applications to pursue in the future.
