AT&T Samsung Galaxy S III finally getting the Premium Suite update with multi-window mode
That sweet Premium Suite update, whose niceties you can see in the videos below, is rolling out to the AT&T version of the Samsung Galaxy S III at long last. Carriers take their sweet time with those, but AT&T put a note on its support page yesterday that it is starting to release an Android 4.1.2 software update with the Samsung Premium Suite for the Galaxy S III (SGH-i747) over the air. 

In addition, on August 7, "Samsung Galaxy S III customers (including those customers on previous software versions ICS) will receive a device notification users that software update is available for the Samsung Galaxy S III. Wi-Fi is required for update."

The changelog is pretty significant for this one, as it brings the exclusive Multi-window mode, best face option in the camer app, and the Paper Artist sketch piece. Here's the full list:

  • Multi Window: You can open two different apps at the same time into two different windows on the mobile screen.
  • Auto Share Shot with NFC: By setting the camera to "Auto Share Shot" mode, you can quickly share your photos and videos by simply tapping their GALAXY S III with other NFC and S-Beam enabled devices
  • Camera features: Paper artist and best face options.
  • AT&T apps: AT&T services, Drive Mode, AT&T Locker; Family Map, Live TV, and SmartWifi have been loaded.
  • Other enhancements: Includes calendar, SD Card, and S-Voice enhancements.

I'm sure this decision have lots to do with Apple regarding their IPhone to sale more as much as possible. IPhones are the only phones that can multi task on their GSM Network. Even thou multi task and multi windows are 2 different things which IPhone can't multi windows. Some people will most likely to turn away from buying the IPhone for this very reason. It's called marketing you're biggest investment.

... So tell me again how it's Apple's fault that AT&T delayed the update for months?

Are you saying the iPhone is the only phone that can multi-task on the GSM network? By multi-task you mean talk and use internet at the same time? Cause Android has been able to do that since the Galaxy S1.
