The Android OEM market has changed dramatically over the past year and a half and the days of going to MWC and CES desperate to see what HTC had to offer seem to have phased out and been replaced by Samsung since the release of the Galaxy SII device.
The followup device to the SII in name is the Samsung Galaxy SIII which of course is still a “rumoured device” and those very same rumours placed the device at MWC next month.
It’s very eagerly anticipated in the mobile world however it looks set to keep us waiting a little longer as according to a recent report on The Verge, the handset will be held back and not shown off.
Why you may ask? Well, according to the same article it could be to align the device closer with its US release.
It’s no secret that it took what seemed like a lifetime to start shipping the SII and Galaxy Nexus in the US following their UK releases so this would make a lot of sense however you have to wonder if they should have sorted the US release sooner to use the power of MWC for sales of the device.
Nothing is set in concrete yet and Samsung remain tight lipped over the whole thing so I guess it’s just a waiting game to see what happens next.
