A slew of accessories await Samsung's Galaxy S III

In addition to announcing its forthcoming quad-core flagship phone, Team Samsung has already prepared some compatible add-ons.

How do you make the phone of the moment even more enticing? Layer on accessories.

Samsung has just announced the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphone running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, followed by mention of a slew of accessories that range from several protective covers to a desktop dock -- and even a wireless charging player and an MP3 player.

One of my personal favorites? The capacitive stylus pen, called the C pen. Not that I think it'll be exceptionally useful on the phone's 4.8-inch HD screen, but I do appreciate Samsung's vigor for bringing back the stylus.

Thanks to NFC support and Bluetooth 4.0 on the Galaxy S III, we're sure to see even more accessories emerge for the car, workplace, and the connected home.

Stay tuned for a closer look at accessories from our on-site team at Samsung's London event, and read our first impressions in our Samsung Galaxy S III hands-on .
