That's probably why they wheren't in a hurry to get phones in... $20...

vs telcos who supposedly think getting you to buy the phone from them = new plan sign ups.

Some times its better to stick it the big guys. Lesson learnt.

Any one using S-voice?
Found it pretty good so far, apart from a random glitch, told it to text Katie ( wife), then confirmed mobile, then said text, got it perfect, and then for some reason it added another contact just before it asked for confirmation to send there was Katie, and Marcus in the to: field?

Dont think it will be a feature I use after owning it for more than a week.

Hahaha, it was sunny, just extremely cold, with a slight breeze :)

Have been using S-Voice a bit too, probably about a 50/50 of getting it right, or extremely wrong.  But it's a bit of a gimmick for me anyway



The camera is fun though, better imo than the One-X

I went and had a play with a white S3 in Harvey Norman CHCH today, I was almost tempted to buy @ $999 but I figure I can wait a bit.
I want to see the blue in my hand before I decide, and I really want a 32GB+ model.

The screen is sweet, it doesn't exhibit the pressure blobs most of the One X's I have tried, seem to be prone to.

And fast is an understatement, it was off the hook fast!!!

S2 will do in the meantime ;)

The good news is with all these people getting white, when the blues come into stock I should get one quickly.
