Or rather, the answer will amaze the owner of this cafe in the Upper Haight area.

The highly-anticipated Samsung Galaxy S III is a coming on June 21, 2012, at (achtung, baby!) T-Mobile, (aka Deutsche Telekom AG) anyway – that’s the news.
Oh, it turns out that that big AT&T / T Mobile merger isn’t going to happen, so TMO soldiers on as America’s #4 (and Germany’s #1) cell phone carrier, not that that really affects me. What affects me is that the T-Mobile doesn’t work so hot in the Lower Haight / Between the Haights (BTH) areas, I’ve noticed, lately, for whatever reason. Otherwise TMO is AOK.
This new device is wide. My man-hands will be able to handle it (in about a half-year or so when my re-up time comes), but what about your hands? I don’t know.
Deets from this AM’s release are below.

On they go, after the jump.
Now, the way that the Mission Local was talking, I was thinking that Microsoft was heading for a six-figure headache over the whole Windows Phone / Maroon 5* / AT&T semi-permanent-chalk sidewalk ad illegality imbroglio.
But then when you look at these glowing green ad things on Valencia and when you grab a random abandoned bottle of liquid something (turned out to be soap, the nozzle’s mostly busted) sitting on top of a trash can nearby and then you start scrubbing to see how hard it is and then two minutes later, the ad is gone, más o menos, bingo bango.

Not so tough now, are you, Windows 7 Phone ad?

So, problem solved. Now, I know only one thing:
I gots to get paid.
I knows I gots to get paid. ‘Cause I just saved your bacon, Microsoft / Waggener Edstrom Worldwide.
Have your people get in touch with my people.
