Mark your calendars for May 3rd.
I'm looking forward to the release of the SGS3. This might be my next Android device if it stands apart from the competition.

That's the unveiling, not the release date. Rumor has it that it will release in Europe/Asia in May, but may not see the states till June/July. By then something better should be rumored, until then my Galaxy Nexus will fine ;p

It is possible, but everything that I read up to this point indicated that it would release overseas in May, but not hit the states until June/July. The BGR report is the first that mentions a NY unveiling in May, but as with all of the others, that is also a rumor. Guess only time will tell, hopefully whenever it comes out, there will be a good stock ICS available.

I wonder about the release date. Hopefully it will not be too long of a wait.

Big disappointment. I would have liked to have seen a unibody polycarbonate body like the Lumia 900 (which i own) or the HTC One X. The bezel which looks like metal is also made of plastic. The age of the cheap plastic housing is over. I'm convinced that Samsung will only make high spec devices with low build quality. The bar has been raised and Samsung failed to impress. Can't wait to hear the reviews.

IMO this device was more overhyped than the iPhone 4S...
This makes me happy I didn't wait for this device and took the Galaxy Nexus a few months ago.
Same display and it's not a Super AMOLED Plus. The Exynos is nice though...

Man, all the talk about this device in other forums and seems like.....that's it.
Oh well, I didn't even like the S2 and opted for the Amaze as I couldn't stand touchwiz or the bluish screen and of course the mostly all plastic build.
Happy with my decision.....even with this coming out now.

Funny how they are echoing exactly what I have said about this device. I'm listening to the Vergecast and they are basically saying that this device failed to impress. I'm sure theres more bashing that the GS3 is going to encounter.
at the 15 minute mark

My only beef with the HTC One's is that they did away with both removable battery and expandable storage. Considering most custom ROM flashing is done via removable SD cards, I can't see the rooting community wanting to support this phone as they will others.Carrier controlled updates is the worst smartphone spec of them all
as far as flashing with SD cards, my HP touchpad runs ICS and there's no SD card on it and I'm able to flash custom ROM"s on it without any problems so this really wont be an issue for the modding community.
