^^^ this has been my face all day. Spent $250 and just got my email confirmation for my order. Super stoked! Can't wait to get it, already got that new device tingly feeling since I know its coming! Money's a bit tight, but I'm going to double hours next week at work so not too worried about that.

Yesterday morning, I awoke from slumber to roll over and open my eyes and saw an exact time of 7:00am in big red digital glowing numbers...

I hadn't set an alarm or anything, so I just KNEW it had to be fate telling me to order the phone...

So I did...

I don't really care too much as I rarely use my Dropbox except for a bit of development work, but it sickens me that they'd release that news two days after pre-orders opened. Shady, shady business practices by Verizon/AT&T.

I just read that 5 minutes ago. Not a big issue to me. But it would have been nice to have. Everyone like free stuff

How much is the GS3 when ur pre ordered? Also, is the Nexus a good phone? Just on fooling with it a the store I liked it but I figured ppl here with one may no more. If I can't afford the gs3 maybe I can get the nexus (I like ice cream sandwiches)

I'm assuming the same as a 32gb gnex around 250 after taxes.. and the gnex, is a sweet phone , if your a flashaholic you couldn't ask for a better device with lots of dev love and oh yeah pure Google :D....I do know with the nexus I was able to charge it to my vzw account, but the s3 BC pre-ordered has to be paid in full..(subsidize)

The DX had a lot of hype, Verizon pushed it hard. It was also historically one of the first phones to push the screen size barrier, and it was a massive seller. But that still can't quite compare to the GS3, being as its coming in a nearly identical form across all major US carriers. The amount of hype for a single Android phone is unprecedented across the board.... its comparable to the hype of an iPhone release, but possibly even bigger as iPhones don't hit all the carriers. Gotta remember almost everyone here is Verizon since we have DXs, similar conversations are happening for basically every carrier. Look at the pre-order stats, its through the roof lol.

It looks I'll lose out unless the s3 hits before the 28th on my data. I'm just not sure if I want to upgrade to this. Sounds good, but will it be worth it? I assume it will definitely be fully unlocked for sure? Any chance of it hitting sores before the 28th?

Considering Verizon's ship date just got pushed back again? Not likely. At least not with Verizon. You may be able to go to an AT&T or something after the 21st and toy with one if you want though.

As far as unlocked. International version is unlocked, no reason to doubt domestic will be locked. ROM support is looking enormous. Major names are coming up, AOKP will be there, Gummy's trying to get a donate phone, Liquid will be there, CVPCS, CM I'm sure, Franco is working on kernels for international currently, wouldn't be surprised to see Imoysen and others.... honestly based on current sales and pre-orders, this will likely be one of the biggest selling smartphones of all time. That will attract enormous developer support. I've also heard some of our local favorites Beanstown and Wizard will be looking at maybe going that way eventually, though I believe Wizard isn't due for an upgrade till December or something. Beans was saying he wanted to get MIUI v4 working if it doesn't get picked. Wouldn't be surprised to see MIUI China pick it up as an official supported device though.
