Its a game still. I un scrambled the words. It seems to be 'galaxy' 'the' 'next'.
So i think the new URL is thenextgalaxy.com

It seems to exist (ping returns IP address) but times out after couple of minutes.

The site's name is an anagram for "The Next Galaxy" Considering the interest its generating and the people lining up, I guess the S3 will be a runaway success.

I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Ace. For some reason, all online apps are working but i cant connect to the internet. I installed Opera but same problem.

The data transfer icon on the top is showing red n yellow whenever i use the online apps.

The site thenextgalaxy.com simply redirects to their youtube page, where a galaxynote video is shown! Where is the S3 thing???

S3 is only coming next month. This is great way to build up excitement to a new product launch. Quite well done Samsung I should say.

Just Relax guys. May 3 is coming soon. Those planning to buy a top end smartphone should wait a bit more. Of course I am not sure that it is going to be the S3 but it seems like its going to be a good phone. People have already set very high expectations from this phone and this teaser promises that. Let the wait begin!

Don't mean to start any wars. But this is a pretty awesome video about Android Usability. It is in 4 parts. A must watch for all android phone users. There are many things which you may have never used. I found one which is Chrome to Phone. I am using it and its awesome.

Yes that's correct.. it will be a success story I believe. I like the way they are comparing iPhone fans to sheep

I had shared these videos some pages back. Yes it is interesting to watch. iPhone users will never agree to anything shown in it.

Sorry, i may have missed it. Pretty awesome videos. All very logical and neatly laid out. Some things shown with froyo too. I have both too just like that guy and i agree, Android is somehow more productive than iphone. Without JB, its really restrictive. Great job Google.

Have you tried showing this to iPhone fans? They will make you believe that he is saying totally wrong things....

I agree that Android user experience is more straight forward and things can be more easily done, but in iPhone you have to get used to that specialized way of using it, then it becomes comfortable. Without JB our with a developer account, most of these things are not possible in an iPhone.

Yes S3 might be a success story but I will not buy it. If you ask me, if I buy an Android next, it will always be the Google phone! Sick and tired of waiting forever for updates with other OEM phones.

I am using a HTC HD2 with CM Android 2.3.7. It is the T-mobile version.
It's acting up all weird since a couple of days. It reboots after a 30 odd minute call or on any heavy usage. Read online that there is a heating issue which in turn causes the CPU Grid array to heat up and thus it restarts. But it loads successfully only once after it cools down.
Anyone facing any similar issues? Ideas?
