In the US market 4G and H+ are the same.  Marketing speak.  In the rest of the world 4G is LTE..   H+ is a subset of 3G..

Its cheaper via clove, you still need to pay GST on top of that, and I'd rather pay GST on $881 than $1011

H+ is HSPA+, also known as 3.5G. Not sure of the specific speeds, but is a heck of a lot faster than 3G. My GNote is HSPA+ compatible and it eats through my mobile data insanely fast! Have to monitor my usage when not on wi-fi.

4G gets down speeds of 20MB/s (i think?), which is faster than most of our broadband speeds in NZ!

Looks like 2Degrees either have their stock or a test phone.

Adriatica have S3 cases on their website, although they say 30 days so maybe indent.

I see that Telecom has got "Coming Soon" for both the blue  and white SGS3s on their website. No pricing or pre-order yet..

They have them listed in telecom phones as coming soon (still no pricing). Based on the info there it would appear they are getting both colours but only the 16GB version.
Am getting a bit sick of constantly checking for deals on all of the telcos sites so if anyone sees anything please give a heads up.
Will be buying from somewhere as a birthday present to myself, but waiting for local pricing before considering parallel import

I get the feeling that either none of the Telcos have pricing or they are waiting on each other before releasing pricing info

I'd say you're absolutely right - it's all academic anyway, until they get their allocations of stock.




Life is mostly froth and bubble, two things stand like stone - kindness in another's trouble, courage in your own.

SGSIII
ROM: WanamLite v1.3    Kernel: Ninphetamine v1.1.0   Modem: DXLEA

SGSII (Now belongs to SWMBO)
ROM: WanamLite v12     Kernel: Siyah v3.3.2   Modem: BVLPB

SGS

If you need a download-mode jig ASAP, you're welcome to borrow mine!  Works with SGS I/II/III.  I also have a SIM cutter available (Dunedin) - happy to post either to you at your cost.

True that. As it stands now I'll probably be getting mine through Clove

you are right i think every telco is waiting for the other two to release the price so they can decide their price. Question is who does it first? also price at clove is now 416.66 pounds from 429.
