Wow I can't wait to get my hands on the S3 after watching a video about USB OTG and what you can use with the phone, PS3 controllers, hardrives etc. Can't post the link directly incase of dodgy youtube comments but if you search on youtube.com for "samsung galaxy s3 connectivity demo" by NZtechfreak I think you will be suitably impressed.
USB OTG is not just limited to SG3 - you can try it on most newish androids.
You an also connect a ps3/xbox controller wirelessly to an android phone, and certain phones will allow the display to be mirrored to a tv or even use the tv in multiple display mode.
Note that if you have an MHL cable from a previous Samsung phone you will need to get an SG3 one, as samsung have changed the pin connections.

Finally got my my hands on my blue S3, using it to type this message. Loving it so far although need to play with the phone some more after upgrading from a nokia5310. Looks very sexy in blue and feels nice in the hand, loving the screen. About four times bigger than my old phone in screen size and much prettier
Well, my love affair with the Galaxy S3 is over, and we won't be getting back together. The phone has one fundamental flaw, IMO, it's corners are too rounded, and when switching to landscape mode it's very easy to hit the back button with the inside of the index finger, it' happened once too often and was flogged.
This is a consequence of them trying to fit a huge screen into as small a chassis as possible, whilst trying to give the phone a nicer look in rounding off the corners, they've left the back button too close to the edge. I'm now using a HTC One X again and loving it, it's a better designed phone, it's screen is almost as big but while the corners are also rounded, they're not too rounded and there's no problem using it in landscape.
Having been so annoyed with this issue that I got rid of a phone that I really liked, I can foresee many others feeling the same, and Samsung's version of Siri, S voice, is very poor in comparison, so While I've no doubt the S3 will be a huge hit, I expect there to be many frustrated owners.
I can't say that has been a problem for me. I was far more concerned with the bugs and faults in the One X.
With that said, the One X (like the S3) is a great device. I would be happy with either of them
Sky have finally produced an app for SkyGo for this phone. Downloaded it last night, works well on 3G.
