The smartphones of today are more along the lines of a portable computer and it seems that the user interface of phones make the crossover more so.
Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha can take on Samsung Galaxy Note 2
NTT DoCoMo has recently revealed the Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha, which is basically an upgraded S3. It has the processor specs of the more powerful Samsung Galaxy Note 2 and the multi-window support which has made the Note 2 so popular. This definitely puts it into the portable computer category.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha, thanks to the multi-window support along with its good amount of memory (2GB RAM), could make the smartphone experience a great deal more productive than ever.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha comes with the 1.6GHz Exynos quad core processor and 2GB of RAM. It has Jelly Bean pre-installed and it supports LTE. At the moment there is no word on the cost of the handset, or whether the device will be available in the US or UK. The US version of the S3 of course falls below the Samsung Galaxy Note 2 as it had to sacrifice its quad-core processor for LTE. It also runs Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich still and has no multi-windows support.
The Samsung Galaxy S3 Alpha will go on sale in Japan very soon.
