Several times, nil issues (be aware you'll pay GST of 15% on the price they give there).

kiwitrc: Gimme the 64gig one


Me too, although I expect it won't be available until like November - for the S1 and S2 and the Note the capacity versions didn't arrive till much later (and seemed as rare as hens teeth).

Yeah true. I am still loving my S2 so I can wait. Also that usually means the bugs are sorted, the ROMs are out and rooting is done.

I think I'll pre-register my interest with Vodafone, seeing it's getting released here at a similar stage. Hopefully one of the networks here does a $100 off intro too

I'm happy with the result and like others did have some exceedingly high expectations. I've given myself an upper cut and think the S3 is pretty decent.

Woah. I guess that makes sense that they'd adopt more NFC based handsets.

These poll results over at Android Police are not surprising and surprising at the same time. Only 1 in 5 people are sold on it and 25% of voters reckon it needs a paper bag

hmmm thats interesting, the way I read it
39% weren't impressed
7% nope
36% have to see it but think so
18% yep I'm sold

so from my perspective thats 46% that probably won't buy it and 54% that may do.
Given those stats I'd be happy as a Samsung marketer

I suppose everyone looks at it from a different perspective and a lot wouldn't have been buying in the first place and only wanted to criticise.

Check out the new LG. Sounds like it has what the SIII should have.

Impressive build quality, awesome screen, 2GB of RAM, yes 2!
