Samsung has started rolling out a new set of exclusive software enhancements to users of the Galaxy S III as part of a package it calls Samsung Premium Suite. It introduces a number of useful software tweaks that includes the much-vaunted multi-window feature to allow users true multi-tasking by letting them run two apps on the screen at the same time. It also adds contextual tagging to photos and a new feature called Page Buddy which tries to predict what a user will do next based on the most recently performed actions.
