We're really this slow in NZ? Even Aussie got them blue phones in 16/32 before us. And we launched the S3 before they did as well. Samsung really F with us all because we have less people.
Well that's the reality of living in a small isolated country with a small market, it's not specific to Samsung.
We launched the same day as Australia did as well.
I think overall we do pretty well for our size (market and geographical).
