    Don't think they will sell it for more than the other carriers.

    I wouldn't hold my breath. Verizon will find an excuse to make it cost more than the others. You may see the 16GB for $199.


    Well I guess Phil just answered that

    So they are essentially charging people $50 for a 32 gb SD card. I'll gladly take the 16gb and place my 32 gb from my Epic to it or just buy a freakin 32 gb card for around $30 or less! I'm just going to wait for the 64gb SD cards to drop down in price, whenever that may be.

    Funny, if this were for the new i-phone it be.......$499 for 16 gb and $599 for 32gb! These people get raped!!

    There is a big difference in speed between the internal and external sd cards.

    I was referring to the difference in speed between the internal sd card memory(16, 32 GB versions that the phone has) vs the external sd card( the removable sd card that people can put in and take out). Applies to any phone.

    The average person isn't even going to notice a difference in speed.

    Wait, I had no idea that this was internal! So you're saying that the GS3 comes with....

    1. 2gb RAM
    2. 16gb or 32gb internal
    3. external slot for SD card

    .....if so WOW!! I thought it ONLY came with 2gb ram and external slot for SD card!

    Yes. The phone can be had with either 16, 32 and possibly 64 GB of internal storage AND a removable external sd card.

    This has been known for a while. Just go to the front page of Android Central.

    I think it's interesting that TMo, Sprint and Verizon actually have established release and pre-order dates while AT&T has not. Since ATT has been selling all the GS phones, I would have thought they would be the first out of the gate, especially since they have LTE in many cities.

    Amazon does not show the GS3 yet for any of the carriers, but personally I'm going to wait and compare it in person once it's physically in the store. Glad to see all you folks are willing to pony up by just reading reviews and watching videos.

    I've waited almost 4 years to dump my iP3G, so a few more weeks won't hurt, LOL.

    "Users can store large libraries of photos, videos and music onboard the Galaxy S3 with expandable memory to compliment the standard 16GB or 32GB of onboard storage."


    My apologies for not believing you but this is great news to me, lol!! I had no idea! Thats A LOT of storage space, damn!! Eat your hearts out HTC lovers!!

    holy **** on a stick!!! I don't upgrade until NEXT july, and i will be eyeballing this monster even then. I don't see anything on the horizon that would get my attention moreso than this, unless they come out with a quad core processor on the same phone. while I prefer HTC, the S3 just cannot be denied. I've been drooling over the SII for a minute, so this just took the cake....wow.

    Internal memory doesn't diet. Sd cards can and will die. It has happened to me and its not a pleasant experience since I was using apps2sd and thus all my apps were gone as well.
