While the phone makers advertise that the Galaxy was built to “make life easier,” some of its attempts to do so are both neat and stalker-ish. One such feature includes the “I am watching you” cam. Technically referred to as the “Smart Stay,” the “front-facing camera can identify your eyes-while reading an e-book or browsing the web, for instance,” the Samsung site explains. “It recognizes how you are using your phone and provides a bright display accordingly.”
The phone will also “give a nudge” when you’ve been away from your phone to alert you of any missed messages, should grandma happen to call on your lunch break.
The pocket sized stalker was also developed to “look sleek” (no one likes a creepy looking stalker), and can reportedly multi-task better than any pleading resume brags about.
“Powered by Android™ 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich, the Galaxy S III allows you to do two things at once with the Pop Up Play feature. Now you can watch HD videos while you email or text-no need to close or restart videos when running other tasks at the same time,” the website stated.
The best news of all is that the highly anticipated creeper is now being packed and boxed headed near you.
“We already know that T-Mobile and Sprint will start selling the thin taste of Ice Cream Sandwich on June 21,” C-Net reported. “But now it appears that AT&T is telling customers who preorder the Galaxy S III that they can expect it to ship on June 18, according to droidmatters.
Verizon customers may lose out on the first to get the phone however, as it has been reported that those customers who pre-order the phone will not receive it until July 9th, although Best Buy may offer it on Verizon as soon as June 28th.

I ordered a Galaxy SII a few days ago, and now I’m just waiting for it
to get to my house. I’m looking forward to most is being able to stream TV and
movies on my phone with LTE. I use the Dish Remote Access app to stream things
from my Sling Adapter-connected receiver to my phone all the time. I use it
most while I’m on my way to work at Dish, and I know that it will work wonders
on the new phone I’m going to get. I can’t wait!
