The pink Samsung Galaxy S III: it had to happen

The pink Samsung Galaxy S III: it had to happenSo in all the talk of new Samsung Galaxy S III colours we've had recently, the one colour we heard nothing about is the dreaded pink. So does that mean that the mobile industry has suddenly had an attack of common sense and realised that the notion girls = pink is hopelessly patronising and immature?

Of course not. Don't be absurd.

The bods over at Samsung have clearly realised that being a pretty decent bit of kit AND being “designed for humans” simply isn't getting the job done for those with more feminine inclinations.

So it's now official: a pink variant Galaxy S III has been drafted into the lineup. Ironically enough after all that – and I can't believe I'm actually saying this – it doesn't actually look that bad, either. It's more pastel than day-glo, which is a good start, and the softer lines of the GS3 versus its predecessor creates a more suitable canvas in the first place.

That doesn't mean for a second that I'm actually interested, and even if I was the pink shade of Galaxy S III is only going to be available over in Korea for the time being, where it'll launch next week.

Should it make its way onto the global scene, however, it'll boost the total range of colour options you can dress Samsung's flagship up in to a surprisingly comprehensive seven: the white and pebble-blue it launched in, the black, red, grey and brown added recently, and now pink.

We'd imagine that's about the end of it, though. Or should that be hope?

Pink, or how to easily cheapen a phone without breaking it.

Personalized, is with a Z not an S. Just thought to mention it. Proofreading is free as is spell check.

Wow. Not sure what I'm more impressed with, your arrogance or your ignorance. Not much I can do about the arrogance, but here's a free English lesson to hopefully make a dent in the ignorance:

Personalize is the US spelling.
Personalise is how the rest of the English-speaking world spell it, including the UK (you may have heard of it). Technically, the "z" spelling is acceptable too, but is very rarely used outside the US.

Anything else?

I can't STAND pink things marketed at women/girls. Makes me gnash my teeth in annoyance.

And of course, in Victorian times, pink was a boy's colour. I do quite fancy the Garnet Red S3 (too late for me as I've got a bluey, more grey though, to my disappointment).

And yep, "z" tends to be used by the Americans, whereas we use "s", but neither option is "wrong". I also gnash my teeth at bad spelling and grammar but never feel the need to log in especially to tick someone off :-P
