In case Pebble Blue or Marble White don’t fit your taste, Samsung is adding four more colors to the Galaxy SIII lineup. While they may be guilty of copying Apple on a few dozen of their smartphones, their marketing for these new colors is definitely their own. Remember: “Designed for humans, inspired by nature.” No official word yet on which colors will be available for each carrier. Try not to laugh too hard as you read this, so as not to disturb people around you. Here we go.
Amber Brown – “Inspired by the mysterious and unique gem, which was believed to sustain the secrets of the earth inside it. The deep, rich colour of Amber Brown redefines the classic colour and emphasizes the beauty of the advanced organic design of the GALAXY S III.”
My girlfriend’s name in 8th grade was Amber Brown (yes, really). She was terrible at keeping secrets.
Titanium Grey – “Inspired by the colour grey as a symbol for intelligence, insight and curiosity, all of which are embodied within the design of the GALAXY S III. Titanium Grey expresses the feeling of modernity and wisdom bringing a futuristic element to the handset.”
Okay, nothing too outlandish with this one. Grey just seems like a bland, boring choice to me.
Sapphire Black – “A colour that adds the mysterious power of dark stones to the refined, deep sophistication of the colour black, Sapphire Black is inspired by the stones used by the ancient people of India and Persia for protection, with the belief they strengthened one’s willpower.”
If it’s reminiscent of “stones” and used “for protection,” people might start throwing these. Better add the insurance when you buy this one.
Garnet Red – “Rare and special, the gemstone Almandite Garnet was worn as an amulet by the ancient Egyptians who believed the stone contained protective powers. Garnet Red holds the delicateness and elegance of Almandite Garnet, in line with the GALAXY S III’s soft curves and smooth lines.”
What’s with all the “protective powers” stuff? Are we supposed to be using our gadgets for self defense?
Jokes aside, the Garnet Red model would be my choice of these four new colors.
