    I can't judge your coverage, but I come away feeling that this has to be one of the lamest product launches you have covered. Why not get it out there? What is the SOC? Board shots. Wow us with the techie details Samsung. It just seems like a mild rehash of the S3, and a few extra gimicky software features...
