The executive said that Samsung would release its Galaxy S3 smartphone according to different specifications and different markets. For European consumers, it would use its own quad-core processor with 3G, while its own solution that combines LTE, 3G and quad-core processor will be used for the Korean version. The only exception would be the US version, which would be using Qualcomm chips."

If this is true, does this change your mind about the GS3? And if so, what is going to be the next best thing? Curious because I'm due for a Verizon upgrade and I am (or was) holding out for the GS3...
YES! SAME HERE. It does change my mind. The bigger question is.... what is the first quad core to run with LTE? Do we wait a few months or do we get the GS3 and by upgrade time the chips are playing together? Who is the first manufacturer to offer the "next big thing"? The hell if I am going to get a Motorola even though it may be the first. Been there, done that with the POS Droid-X.
