    What I don't get is having Sprint for the first carrier. Everyone knows Spring's 3G network is one of the slowest and they are FAR behind both ATT and Verizon on launching LTE. So why release an LTE phone with a carrier that will have it eventually as opposed to those that already do? And I agree about the thin factor. My problem with Sammy devices is that feel 'cheap' due to build quality and flimsy back covers, etc. But what do I know, LOL

    And it is arguably the best version of the S2 as well.

    All I can say is if Sammy builds it like they did the NS4G or the Epic 4g then it will stand up very well. While many question Sammy by saying they have cheap or flimsy builds I question those...

    I have 5 kids that fight daily over my phone & my wife's to play Angry Birds and Temple Run. Both have been tossed, covers flown off even sdcard launched out of my wife's Epic during play and both phones work like a champ and basically scratch free....

    I for one am looking to step down from my current Google phone to go back to TW and bloat just to enjoy the SGSIII... I think that alone says a lot...

    Rumors are great - hard to believe that a phone that won't be released until the holiday season (or even early 2013) is affecting HTC stock prices because this is a competitor to the RELEASED HTC One X and S.

    Well don't be so suuuure, Mr Trivor...


    They are saying that they want to see a global launch simultaneously this time around. I expect it to be fully released before mid July, just in time for the Olympics.

    Waiting until after this event to decide if I am going to pick up the One X or wait for this. These rumored specs sound great

    I'm glad Samsung is finally going to announce this phone. By then, I'll finally decide which phone to go with. EVO 4G LTE or the Galaxy S III? Somehow, I'm thinking its going to be Samsung.

    You bet, it's great timing to be in the market for a new phone just do not want to jump the gun too quickly if this GSIII is going to be something spectacular. I can wait a few months as my current phone works just fine but am due to upgrade (plus my work is paying a portion so that helps )

    Nice having your work pay a portion. I have until Sept 1 before my upgrade, currently my NS4G is working fine so this gives me plenty of time to see how everything unfolds.

    Still thinking Sammy, I'm a Samsung fanboy I guess... 3 Sammy's so far under my belt.

    Did you catch the leak on the front page? It matched a few things my source told me (although he hasn't been responding to me lately)

    -The device has some weight to it
    -It may be in a standard "lunchbox" casing to prevent the leak of the true form factor
    -Thinner than the GSII
    -We're most definitely going to see the device ousted by a leak before the conference (look for Olympics ads?)

    What doesn't line-up perfectly is the 12mp camera... My source said that it wouldn't be manufactured quickly enough to be put in the phone, being on an even later timeline than the 5250 proc. Interesting stuff for sure. And the home button???

    The "leak" now comfirmed to just be a 'lunchbox.' On to the next 'leak'

    Galaxy S III: latest alleged leak not accurate, name still unconfirmed; tightest security 'ever' for a Samsung launch | The Verge

    They are on the right track, though: Samsung is using what are described as "generic test boxes" to put the next Galaxy model's internals through quality checks, presumably to allow employees to use the phones off of company premises without being spotted. We're being told that Gizmodo's images are of one of those dummy boxes. "That's not even close to the final design," we're told. "No leaks of the final design have been accurate."
    This lines up with what your source told you Love Divine. Your source and the info he/she provided just climbed a rung on the credibility ladder in my book.

    If that's for the international version and Sprint is getting the dual core A15, I am all for it. I just don't get that this Meizu thing will have the same processor as Samsungs flagship phone, just doesn't make sense to me.
