    I wonder if the VZW version will have 2GB of RAM like the Canadian versions. I also wonder if they'll get both colors.

    I'd love to believe this:

    But I suspect this may be correct:

    http://pdadb.net/index.php?m=specs&i...i535_galaxy_s3

    Several discrepancies.

    Does the FCC publish the technical specifications of devices it approves?

    Samsung says it will be released by 5 US carriers this month, including Verizon, and that will be dual core (not quad), and have 2GB of RAM. Samsung says prices will start at $199, but each carrier will set their own price.

    Sooner would be better, so Verizon has less time to fool with the firmware.

    The Verizon one actually has real pictures anyway. Looks like they are all going to look like the International version.

    I hope (for those that buy them) that the only physical carrier branding is on the back.

    I hate it when they say "Pre-orders start on the 6th with the release in the upcoming weeks." Just give a REAL release date!
    They pulled the same "upcoming weeks" on the Droid Incredible 4G, but it's been a month now.
    But my guess with the GSIII is the release would be 1-2 weeks after the pre-sale.
    $249 for the 32 GB version isn't band, and still can install microSDHC or microSDXC memory cards.
    My hope is that it has better 4G reception than the Galaxy Nexus, as it was always dropping 4G here and would get stuck in 3G.

    Have you seen anything definitive on this ? There are specs stating that "expansion slots" are "not supported" on the i535.

    Also, will the bootloader be locked?
    I was hopeful, since Samsung has been making them unlockable. But so has HTC and I learned today that the HTC 'One series' is locked. So, not a given.

    Besides not being eligible for an upgrade, I am concerned about the weak reception in Samsung phones
