Didn't the S3 just come out, like, 3-4 months ago?
They release a new phone every 9 months or so. This way, they don't have to waste time supporting their old phones. I mean,
last years customers, amirite?
You can say what you will about Apple, but it's nice to not be completely forgotten about less than a year after buying my device. In fact, the iPod touch I bought in high school (4 years ago) is still able to have the latest version of iOS.
Anyway, I didn't come here to start an iOS vs Android war. I came here to say: who the hell would want this thing? It's fucking huge. If I wanted a device that couldn't fit in my pocket, I'd just carry a table with me.
