Silly question: why is the Samsung Galaxy S III the S III?

What makes the Samsung Galaxy S III an 'S' phone?
Why wasn't the Samsung Galaxy Nexus the Galaxy S III?
Is it simply a name thing?

Hey thinkingman,

Believe it or not the Galaxy Note was the natural successor to the Galaxy S2 according to Samsung!

The Galaxy Nexus is a Google branded handset as was the Nexus S before it, the Nexus name is used for Google branded devices so expect a Google Nexus tablet sometime soon ;)

The Samsung Galaxy S3 does make perfect sense as the next in the S series, we've already seen the Galaxy S Plus and S Advance which can get a little confusing after a while.

Galaxy S3 deals are already released for pre-order with stocks arriving in the UK as of May 29th!
Available in both Pebble Blue and Marble White.

Simply name thing.
Google calls its phone Bla Bla Nexus Bla.
Samsung has a lot of different ranges - S, W, Y, Ace Fit. S3 simply means range S third model.

If you had read the bible, you'd know the answer!

oops, wrong forum.
Yes, it's arbitrary naming conventions.
