Samsung Galaxy S III release date is set for May 29th, June for USA
The Samsung Galaxy S III release date is sooner rather than later - the S III will launch globally on May 29th with HSPA+. 

Separately, a 4G LTE version it will come to the US, Japan and Korea later on this summer. Samsung has clarified that for the US, the release date will actually be in June.

Samsung is staging a huge first appearance on store and carrier shelves for the Galaxy S III as it will arrive on 296 carriers in 145 countries across the globe. Not a bad start for the most anticipated handset so far this year now, is it?

you and me both.. that way on the off chance we get short changed with crapdragon again, I can just order an unlocked international. thats the only reason I didn't get the sgs2 international .. I can happily give up high end 4g, but in need at least 7.2mb 3g. I can't deal with edge.

Google has been responsible for the vast majority of Android development. When's the last time Siri, the beta product, got an update? Apple did almost nothing with Siri except, according to the Woz, make it worse.

Siri got an update in March. So Apple has done zero development with Siri? Hmmm

My apologies. They added a language. I take it that being able to speak to Siri in Japanese has been incredibly useful for you, no?

Honesty, even though Apple used the same design for the second year, I found the design feel a little timeless. It doesn't seem to get old. I don't use a iPhone, just saying =)

sigh you make us fans of android look bad. Nothing special about this phone, it's a nexus with a 8mp camera. Cupertino is probably laughing right now.

its quite a bit more than a nexus with a bigger camera. and cuppertino is the place where they sold the iPhone4 for 18 months and then started selling the EXACT same phone with voice recognition and an upgraded processor. that will always be the standard for lazy minimum upgrading by a company. the exynos sgs3 is a substantial upgrade in more ways than not

As far as the hardware goes, what does it have that could be considered a major upgrade ?

137. remixfa

Posts: 14605; Member since: Dec 19, 2008

you dont think a 50%+ upgrade in actual horsepower, + a half inch larger screen, + going from a low rez screen to the highest available is a major upgrade? if you dont consider that a major upgrade,then there has never been a major upgrade on any phone yet.
