Dude, you can import any phone you want and make it work with At&T. You can buy a Galaxy Nexus from google for $400 bucks and just use your SIM. Verizon peps can't do that. They're stuck with whatever offerings the carrier has.

Don't say that just yet. While it all sounds good, just remember, they are notorious for changing things. It sounds great on paper for sure, but honestly, I'm a realist. We'll see.

The Galaxy SIII coming to verizon is some of the best news I've heard all year. I was mad about verizion not getting a HTC One varient, and that little 4 inch droid incredible 4g LTE is too small, if this is true all I can do is :).

I can see Verizon charging $299 while AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile at the $199 price.

Have you seen the S4 benchmarks even once..
It easily beats the quad core (okay 4-plus-one) Tegra 3 while only having 2 cores and is really very much power efficient than any other quad core or even the dual cores out there.
No. of cores does not matter, but the performance surely does!!

Hate to be a Debbie Downer but since this BGR doesn't have an official source on this I'm just going to have to rule it as "fascinating rumors".

The multiple Razrs might actually be true. We've seen leaked shots of a possible "Razr HD" and already Verizon has discontinued sales of a 32GB Droid Razr (possibly to make room).

And that's how people should take it. They are RUMORS. Nothing more. In the cell phone world, your better off being a Realist because nothing is in stone until you see it in front of you. About the Razr's, I've said this for the longest time, a new lineup will be out soon called the Motorola Droid Afterthought.

Ok, I understand why people are pumped for the GS3 and its quad core chip...but for those of us here in the states aren't we getting a dual core version anyway??? From what I understand Samsung's quad core chips arent LTE Compatible; Only the international versions will be Quad. Please feel free to educate me if I am completely wrong!

P.S. This is my first post so go easy on me!

You are right, SGS3 for the US will most likely be an S4 dual core processor. That's according to Tmonews, and they say that came from a Samsung exec.

now does this shut you complainers up? yeah, you know who you are. you wanted the Note and wanted to know why Verizon didn't offer one? here's the reason. Verizon usually has good reasons for what they do. this HTC is going to be immensely superior to the first generation Note. as for the report of "multiple Razrs" i just hope that Moto doesn't over saturate the market with Razrs too fast like they did all those years ago with the original.

Hey, listen, lets not start kissing ass now and jump for joy. These are rumors and they should be handled as such: RUMORS. Lets not give false advertising here. I'm a REALIST. I will believe it when I see them step their asses up and show it out and ready to roll. So before you talk all that s**t about Verizon this, Verizon that, lets wait till fall and then lets see what the deal is.

Despite not liking the five inch screen size, the specs of that HTC smartphone is just outstanding.

HTC is looking good!!! Now if this phone also keeps good battery life I'm all for trying it out. Otherwise I'm going with a Razor Maxx HD or SGSIII

Would it be pointless to get an S3 even though I just got my Galaxy Nexus in December?
I love my phone, but resolution could be better and sometimes slow at processing apps to open up.

krait quad core with Adreno 320 will put everything to shame trust me and this will also come in htc phones also

HTC will rise cuz HTC is the best dont mind what samsung is doing HTC released quad core Tegra 3 but whats important is HTC and Snapdragon always blend there will be quad core S4s with Adreno 320 from HTC thats after GS3 lunches. HTC released Tegra 3 just becasue they had to do something to keep them alive for now and not remain dormant since quad S4 wasent ready. People are gonna see more phones like the one x from HTC with 4.7 inch with far more than what Tegra 3 has to offer.
