AM News: Samsung Galaxy S3 Screen Protector & Pictures Emerge, Facebook IPO Set for May 18?, Sony Vaio T- Series Ultrabook

Sony has unveiled its first Ultrabook, the Vaio T-series which will be available with displays of 13.3 and 11.6in in size. Both of them come with a chassis made of aluminium and magnesium and with a battery life of up to nine hours. The Ultrabook can be switched on and off simply by opening and closing the lid with the company's Rapid Wake + Eco feature keeping the device on stand by for up to 90 days without the need to charge up.

What looks like a screen protector for the next Galaxy (otherwise known as the Galaxy S3) has emerged online and a picture of it covering the current Galaxy S2 shows how big the new smartphone will be. A website from Hong-Kong, Unwire.Hk, put the Ultimate Screen Guard on the S2 and one can notice that the S3 is just slightly larger than the S2. There will apparently be a home button which appears to be all so closer to the edge of the smartphone.

More pictures of what appears to be the Samsung Galaxy S3 have appeared on a website in the Netherlands where incidentally another mock up emerged a few weeks ago. According to an anonymous source who tipped Sammobile, the S3 or S III will be based on the Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich and will be known as the GT-I9300, not the first time we've heard this name.

With many waiting in anticipation for news of Facebook's IPO, The Wall Street Journal has reportedly set the date: 18th May. The publication has reason to believe that the social networking business will begin pitching to investors as of next Monday, and should the company prove successful in gaining interest, will hold its initial public offering later this month.
