    This should have been the Nexus. With the exception of the camera it looks like a nice phone. Definitely a big step up from the S2.

    I like that the NFC is no longer built into the battery cover. The eye recognition (won't turn off if your are looking at it). The soon available wireless charging set up will be handy. I will be in London tomorrow and it sure woulda been nice if these were available now so I could play with it.

    Edit: The Samsung GALAXY S III will be available from the end of May in Europe before rolling out to other markets globally.*

    Maybe when I return back to the US in July I will give it a run through unless it is available where I will be staying.

    Go figure it's not a global release as predicted. It sucks but I kind of knew that would happen. It probably won't end up in the US for about 3-4 months, just like the S2.

    It also says "these specifications may differ from the LTE versions". I was really hoping they had defeated the Exynos LTE incompatibilities.

    The wife already said she wants the white one. I suppose I will get the blue grey one.
