Samsung’s yet-to-be-announced Milky Way S III has been at the source of rumors for months, but this conjecture is more out of the ordinary than most: BGR reported Tuesday that the expected flagship phone will be the “official device” of the 2012 Olympic Games.
An Olympic connection is to Milky Way S III creates clarity for a couple of reasons. First, Samsung is already a unite of the 2012 Summer Olympic Games , and soccer star David Beckham is looming in ads as a associate of “Team Samsung.” Second, on May 3 in London , you design Samsung will strictly betray the Milky Way S III as a of its new top-of-the-line handsets, sitting to one side the Milky Way Note and Milky Way Nexus .
While an authorized Olympic tie-in is to Milky Way S III is of course possible, it’s value gripping in thoughts that Samsung’s Taiwanese opponent Acer is moreover sponsoring the summer games, and has voiced an Olympic-branded device of its own: the quad-core Iconia Tab A 510 tablet, running on Google’s Android 4.0 working system, and ornate with the Olympic rings trademark on back.
Panasonic as well is an Olympic sponsor, but it has nonetheless to publicize an Olympic book for its Toughbook tablets or anything else.
Earlier this month, Samsung officials told the English journal The Telegraph that the firm would let go a phone in time is to Olympics that would be matching with Visa’s nearby margin information (NFC) payments platform, that may be used during the London 2012 games.
Samsung officials declined to criticism on the BGR report, saying in an email to Wired that “Samsung does not criticism on rumors or speculation.”
Considering what BRG and the Telegraph have reported, it’s probable that the Milky Way S II will be an “official phone” of the Olympics rsther than than an “official device.” However, those selling conditions likely have more to do with allowance outlayed on aid than that difficulty of device is wearing a 5-ring Olympic logo.
