Galaxy S III (Sprint) | Samsung
Preview builds have been announced for CyanogenMod 10, which is based on Android 4.1, on the AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint versions of the Samsung Galaxy S III.
Samsung surprised users of the all-new Galaxy S III on both Sprint and AT&T with an over-the-air update last week. The update contained the usual bugfixes and something more: reduced functionality. Samsung calls the updates a precautionary measure against Apple's lawsuits.
It's not yet the end of the week but already the news cycle feels... relaxed. Maybe it's the weather, maybe it's a full day without Microsoft trash-talking a competitor... maybe it's all the full-length episodes Viacom took offline in the wake of its dispute with DirecTV. (As it turns out, 90 Seconds on The Verge is also not on DirecTV — but if the company's looking for a way to refill those 26 channels, hey, give us a call.) So sit back, relax, and spend 90 of those seconds you wanted to use on the Vergecast today to hang out with us.
After the Sprint version of the Galaxy S III receive an over-the-air update that (among other things) removed the ability to search on-device, we imagined that it would only be a matter of time before other carriers follow suit. AT&T is the first to drop the OTA bomb
Manufacturing issues delayed Samsung's Galaxy S III, forcing Sprint to backpedal on its original June 21st release date, but now the carrier says the smartphone will be available starting Sunday, July 1st.
