The very stern voiced chap on the phone said blue ones weren't in the country yet, don't know if that's just a line or not. I ordered within hours if not minutes of them advertising on website so they at least probably never had any

Rudder: Well that both sucks and blows!


That's a polite version of my thoughts, if I express my frustration perhaps they will make it worth my while

I'm really surprise that JB not trying to beat other retailers on price. So far we had many retailers doing $949 but JB still listing it as $1047 for 16GB. I am hoping I can talk them down for the 32GB to $1047. It would be a deal for me if they do :)

I hope so. I have put my name down and they said they will contact me when they know the price but I still have not received any call from them. I hope on the launch day to see that their price is out of this world.

Thinking it might be the Virgin Space flights taking off in late 2013, if all goes well.

if all doesn't go well then we get to get rid of the following:
Tom Hanks, Ashton Kutcher, Katy Perry, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are known to have already signed up to become space tourists. 







I have moved across the ditch.  Now residing in Melbourne as a VOIP/Video Technical Trainer/Engineer.

Slightly nerve wracking to think that there might not be enough to go around straight away.

There are not many accessories for the S3 unless JB bundle with the genuine case/ wifi allshare or screen protector.
But I think they will bundle 16GB card with their S3. I don't really need the card because I have a 32GB card already.
I really want to see their deal :) I'm waiting patiently

On the JB hifi site it advertises the SGSIII as having a key feature:

"LTE - Faster download time than current 3G networks. And it’s only going to get faster and faster"

...isn't that only in the US version???!
