With it’s new device, Samsung also announced a new voice assistant for it’s device that’s a little like Siri. It’s called “The S Voice” and here’s a direct quote from Samsung about it: “In addition to allowing information search and basic device-user communication, S Voice presents powerful functions in regards to device control and commands,” they explained in their release today. “When your phone alarm goes off but you need a little extra rest, just tell the GALAXY S III “snooze.  You can also use S Voice to play your favorite songs, turn the volume up or down, send text messages and emails, organize your schedules, or automatically launch the camera and capture a photo.”

Let’s see how Samsung does with this new device. I think it will be a big hit in the U.S. just like the Galaxy S and S II. The Galaxy S III with be availible in Europe on May 29th with the release date in other countries TBD.
