So, are all variants going to have the option of using a microSD card for memory? If so, then good for AT&T to not push a rip-off of a deal 32GB option for internal phone memory, like some other carriers/manufacturers do.

Can't these fracking people get it right? Verizon said it would ship its S3 by 7/7/2012.

Or sooner.

So how is it working out for you if you don't mind me asking? Im still on the ropes if I want to move over to Sprint and get this phone or if I am going to stay witn TMobile and get the Galaxy 3. I like the design of the Evo so much more than the uninspiring Galaxy 3 but Im on the ropes lol! I just can't make up my mind.

I love it! Its thin and light and has a huge beautiful screen. I was a little skeptical with the design at first but I have warmed up to it. I am however a little bias because I love HTC quality and their Sense UI so much but I don't have any complaints about it except there is no LTE yet but I knew that from the start

Verizon has the price right, but the release date, 2 weeks after everyone else?

Man Verizon.

I pre-ordered the phone and they told me that it will ship out July 9. I'm excited because when VZ passed on the SG2 I was bummed, so now that they are carrying the SG3 I'm getting it!

My status has gone from backordered to processing. I talked to the AT&T premier rep and he said my phone will be over nighted tonight. So I’ll keep my fingers crossed :)
