Samsung Galaxy S III Available In 28 Countries Today... Kind Of

Samsung this morning announced that the Galaxy S III is now available in 28 different countries. Except, it's not.

Full Hands-On With Samsung's S Voice From The Galaxy S III

S Voice is Samsung's entry into the fledgling "virtual assistant" market currently occupied by Siri, Evi, Speaktoit Assistant, Vlingo, and a handful of others.
