Testing the Samsung Galaxy SIII 4G :)

samsung galaxy s3 4g

I’m very excited! If everything goes right I will get a Samsung Galaxy SIII 4G today or tomorrow.
It will be very interesting and fun to finally try Android[1] for real. I will do some comparisons to my iPhone 5, test Android apps, do videos about it and much more.

The great thing is that this Android phone is the latest Galaxy S3 model, the 4G version, and it supports the Swedish LTE[2] frequencies, so it will even have faster network speeds than my iPhone 5 has at the moment.
And this 4G model is also a bit snappier than the normal version because it has 2GB RAM[3] memory instead of only 1GB.

I am very novice when it comes to Android so it will take some time for me before I can do all the advanced stuff that I want to do. For example writing in MarkDown[4] in a Markdown text editor, blogging directly from the phone with formatting, images, links and all. Do video editing and all the other productive and creative stuff I do on my iPhone.

I will both blog and do videos about everything I learn, so you can follow my journey into Android land :)

Great times ahead!
