Tech Holiday Treats ~ @Verizon Samsung Galaxy SIII with Ice Cream Sandwich

Although we have many important family dates upcoming in the next couple of months, there is one date that everyone in the family is excited about and it is, perhaps surprisingly, not a national holiday.  Our cell service contract will expire.

Frankly, that happy day could not arrive soon enough for my family, having outgrown our current cell phones some time ago, marveling the latest smart phone models with no small amount of chagrin.  Although each member of my family values features in varying levels of priorities and has their eye on a specific new phone model with relish, two of us are not unlike kids in a candy store, or rather, in an ice cream parlor.

That's right!  The Teen Diva and I have our hearts set on the new Samsung Galaxy SIII from Verizon, overflowing with techy treats like Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich platform!  (Yes.  It is as tasty as it looks!)

Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich 
The integration of this new platform makes using the Samsung Galaxy SIII a virtual treat.  Everything about it is smooth, easy and enhanced.  

Increased Customization ~ home screen folders and favorites trays
Face Recognition and Device Unlock option
Improved Camera Capabilities ~ including face detection and panorama mode
Virtual Navigation. ~ all controls on screen, swipe action
Enhanced Photo Editor App & Live Transforming Video Effects
Voice Engine Input ~ voice recognition and text dictation
Android Beam Sharing ~ touch Android devices and tap send to share

The Samsung Galaxy SIII is akin to that perfect sundae, with scoops of all your favorite flavors and the all important cherry on top.  We loved the huge screen, a whopping 4.8" Super AMOLED display, teen proofed with Gorilla Glass, as well as the ability to maneuver with swipes on the user-friendly touch/swipe screen and the new motion and voice command options.

This new-comer to the smart phone scene is a multi-taskers dream.  Powered by the Verizon 4G LTE network, with the support of a 1.5GHz dual-core processor and 2 MB of RAM, combined with all the new innovations, the Samsung Galaxy SIII is your alley in staying connected and keeps up with your demands.   The ability to work in numerous applications simultaneously is fantastic, as well as the easy share options between compatible Android units with the S Beam and Share Shot technology.

As if all these goodies were not enough, we were truly impressed with the camera functions on the Galaxy SIII.   We were able to capture wonderful photos with the 8.0 MP rear-facing camera and this Mom appreciated the addition of the Burst Photo technology which allows for multiple rapid photo shots as well as the zero shutter lag.  What a plus for a Mom on the go!  The Galaxy SIII also offers HD video recording and a 1.9 MP front-facing camera.

If a new smart phone is on your holiday list this year, take advantage of the phenomenal special offer from Verizon, available with a two year contract!  This Mom certainly will be!

Hmmm, I have quit looking for lots of features in a cell phone. My new one is smarter than I am!
