Y'all wont get Pebble Blue for a while as some goose made a blue with the back cover and Samsung had to trash about 650,000. Still prefer the Note for reading books,newspaper articles and the stylus.

S3 is a nice phone, but it's sad to see it all but covering up the beloved and now mostly ignored Galaxy Note. I've been listening to streaming jazz music stations, making personal s memo notes, looking at Google map to explore Portland via street view and keeping tabs on my tech website on my white Galaxy Note, all while reading a new self help book while sipping coffee in my recliner with my warm cat in my lap the last several hours on a single charge
I absolutely love my Note

The Note is a great phone. However the SGS3 is much more future-proof because it's got a quad-core chip.

Yeah right, by next year Samsung will dump you and release new handset without giving you updates.

Or - if you know how to operate a mouse and a keyboard - you can flash a custom Rom - and be limited only by your device's physical attributes..

they are both great.... as long as you have the international note with exynos, it will be supported. The american S3 version is so-so.
However, just like everything else, the new device gets all the attention. no reason to cry over it.

Ohh the irony! Samsung makes fun of iPhonies lining up on launch day so are these the Samsung "sheep"?
24. Evil_SaNz posted on 29 May 2012, 10:54 1
Yeh I don't understand the purpose to waste days of our life in a line while you can comfortably get the phone some days after =\ bad phenomena indeed. For sure the phone won't get out of stock...

No. Contrary to lSheep - these people actually are buying a very very very capable phone.
