Carriers in Antarctica launch the Samsung Galaxy S5 ahead of schedule
An anonymous user stationed at South Korea's King Sejong Research Station in Antarctica told us that the Samsung Galaxy S5 is already shipping to various settlements across the frozen continent, almost ten days ahead of the scheduled April 11 launch date.
Refusing to cite concrete evidence for fear of being traced and forced to shovel snow naked in the minus spring temperatures, our tipster pointed at Argentinian carriers Claro and Movistar, which operate GSM networks for Argentina's Antarctic bases, as the culprits. The two telecoms, our source claims, received limited numbers of Galaxy S5 units from Samsung to organize a launch event for Antarctica, but the continent's prominent lack of advertising channels pressured them to start selling the flagship smartphone ahead of schedule.
Samsung declined to comment on the news, dismissing it is a mere April Fools' joke.

I own a nexus 7 its an excellent hardware. Mind blowin display, super fast, cyanogenmod 11 running. You wont go wrong with this. Dont get the g pad. If you live in US get the GPE edition of g pad. Also if you can wait for nexus 7(probably 8) 2014, then waiting is smart option.

Why not g pad? It's better the naked android of Google without any software of LG, which has good features? Okay, it has some bloatware but it has interesting features, like in the video player, in the audio player and in the file management like no limit of the data size of the files, in its detection, which isn't present in the GPE edition. And LG goes to update the LG Pad to Kit Kat 4.4.2.

Tab 8.4 has the best display and internals. Nexus 7 has the best software. So wait for the Nexus 8 or a tab 8.4 gp edition.

Common denominator for this joke and real life?
This phone would crack and break in those temperatures with it's cheap plastic.
The penguins best wait for the S5 Active, but that is a stretch at best...

Yeah I'm sure if Antarctica have the Iphone 6 you will hope on a plane to the FROZEN CONTENENT.
