Unlike its predecessor, the S III’s “most intriguing mode may be what Samsung is calling ‘Group Cast,’ which shares your phone’s screen with other users on the same network and allows them to annotate and add comments – good for an ad-hoc presentation with coworkers, for instance.” That’s not all, certain models will boast 4G data connectivity as well. This phone is expected to hit stores on May 29th in Europe.
