Quite the achievement by Samsung!

Convincing US carriers to do anything is hard.
Convincing all 5 of the major carriers to -

keep the same phone and not demand changes
keep the same name and branding
announce and release on the same date
keep the same price

That is one hell of an accomplishment. I can only imagine Samsung must've played some hardball, esp with the likes of Verizon. "You do what we say, or you're not getting this phone !!". And its only possible because of how successful Samsung and the GS3 already is.

Finally US consumers will know its a Galaxy phone rather than some random Droid/Epic Touch etc.
