JayTaicho: I'm actually working on the Vodafone retail TV ads for the GSIII this week. Haven't got the official info yet to put in the TVC, but if what I've heard is true, the plan price and handset price sounds pretty reasonable to me.

Was looking forward to having a hands-on with the handsets today (Vodafone sent us both colours to use as reference), but were sent off-site for a photoshoot! So will hopefully get a hands-on tomorrow!





Can you tell us when the ads are due out?

well i'm ready for the first time in ages to buy local ... but may put a preorder in with mobicity as well. just in case.  can always cancel it i guess.

but yeh, blue or white mate?   since the big sites have been weighing in with previews i'm feeling a LOT more comfortable going blue

but one thing ...vodafone Uk seem to have an exclusives on the 32GB version .... does voda nz get in on that too?


i'm curious about how samsung partition the internal storage,  my s2 has 1.97 for apps, and then a "usb storage"  internal partition ... so if both the 16 and the 32gb S3 have the same sized "internal storage" partition ..... its kinda pointless going for the 32 .. as even if you move most yr apps to "sd card"  ..you're not likely to hit that limit anytime soon... just put all yr vids on external storage...

It's unfortunate it is plastic, I was looking forward to ceramic, I wonder if there will be a ceramic back made and sold separately by a third party.

Sorry, it was a bit of a tease wasn't it. I'm a dork.

Obviously I can't share pricing (or say anything at all that would jeopardise my job). But if I'm starting a retail ad this week, then it's most likely to be on air next week.

Not long to wait.

I just can't get my head around the blue one...all the colours look so strong and vibrant with the white surround. I'm thinking WHITE is where it is at.


Aside from that, does anyone know what the car kit is like and does Samsung have the "CAR" mode stuff HTC has been offering on the HOX? Kinda like the big images in car.

yeh but being a oled screen ... sooner or later you'll want a black based wall paper scheme on there ... and a darker phone looks better in that situation.


i dunno ... i agree, in isolation white looks good, but that is a big phone ... i just feel it's gonna look like a light saber in hand, esp at night ..

No need to check voltage. They are all 110-240v

I don't normally go for presenters Tongue Out, it's the phones I'm interested in, plus my wife would probably kick me.

Not that I'm ADHD or OCD

But can a moderator here start a "Blue or white" poll in this thread?
