If you have wanted to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S3, but never really got around doing so because you do not have the monetary means to do so, perhaps it is time to take a trip to Malaysia during the winter holidays and pick up the Nova N3 for just RM599 – which is roughly the equivalent of less than $200 after conversion, where the Nova N3 comes across as an unlocked device, meaning you need not get bogged down by a 2-year contract as well. Interestingly enough, the Nova N3 shares the same model number with the Galaxy S3, which is i9300. Sporting a 4.7” WVGA display, it will run on the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, powered by a 1GHz Cortex A9 processor, carry a paltry 512MB RAM, while having two cameras – an 8-megapixel shooter at the back and a 1.3-megapixel camera in front.
Bluetooth 2.1, WiFi, USB 2.0, and 3G connectivity rounds off the list of features. The 4GB of internal memory can be augmented by a microSD memory card slot. Any takers for this Galaxy S3 clone? Bear in mind that there is no NFC capability with this particular handset.
