Galaxy Nexus Add-on Pack Brings Many Galaxy S III Delights
With all the development going on with the Samsung Galaxy S III, it’s hard to believe that the phone hasn’t actually been released yet. Thus far, the device has been rooted, its launcher was ported to the Galaxy S II, and it even brought some controversy over the extraction and modification of S Voice.
