The latest rumor making the rounds around the Internet is that Samsung is including a Super AMOLED Plus display which would allow the Galaxy S III to showcase its 4.65inch screen at 720p HD resolution. You may be wondering what in the world a smartphone 720p HD display even looks like, well here is a side by side comparison.

The difference between the two is very clear and quite stunning.

With that being said, we can most likely expect the Samsung Galaxy III to be hitting stores sometime in May as AsiaE has reported that carrier testing is currently underway.

Are you ready for the Samsung Galaxy III? We know we are.

Dropbox is a cloud based file storage, sharing and syncing service. It allows you to access your files stored within your virtual Dropbox from any other device (PC, Mac, Phone etc…) that has the software installed. Great way to share files across devices and platforms. I use this software daily to share files between various devices without the need to carry flash drives or disks.

Opinion: The problem with Angry Birds Space for Android? It’s still Angry Birds.

by George Heymann |@techeadlines

At the risk of offending Angry Birds fans, Rovio has long since jumped the shark in my estimation with installment after installment of  the Angry Birds franchise. The latest release of the hugely popular franchise Angry Birds Space has the birds chasing a giant claw through a wormhole after it kidnaps their eggs.

The birds find themselves floating in a galaxy surrounded by space pigs. If it sounds ridiculous, it’s only because it is! Angry Birds Space  features 60 interstellar levels on planets and in zero gravity. The game also offers slow-motion puzzles, new birds, new superpowers and zero gravity environments.

I must admit I didn’t play the latest installment long enough to experience all of the new gameplay elements. Although having to alter bird launch trajectories to factor for planet gravity or lack of gravity in space did add to the challenge.
