    Trend is being followed. GS III released end of May in Europe, other markets to follow. Prediction: US - late fall.

    I think my next device will be the Google tablet if it ever becomes reality.

    Yeah, engadget will only say LTE "expected". No dates. Verizon, your nothing if not consistent.

    Also, its not a huge jump, other than the processor, (which of course, we won't get). Slightly bigger screen, Touchwiz, slightly more MP in the camera... Still love my Nexus.

    3 more megapixels...5 to 8 is a wash and is actually a negative to me. More MP on the same size (small) sensor is worse.

    0.15" more screen space...wash

    Quad core Exynos vs dual core TI OMAP 4460 - eh, yet to be seen...edge to the SIII

    Touchwiz...sucks

    Winner - Nexus

    The phone listens to you and knows what you want. It recognizes your eye movement and stays on when you're looking at it

    It understands your intention to call and makes the call for you

    Strange

    With all this phone will be doing in the background...tracking your eyeball movments, listening to your intent, waiting for you to say "Hi Galaxy!" ....battery life of 4-5 hours is my guess, lol.

    Now they are demonstrating a call. Motion recognition. So if you raise the phone to your ear it recognizes you are making call to person texting. You don't hve to even dial.

    too far...texting someone does not mean you want to call them.

    This thing is pretty sweet.

    SVT - the 8MP sensor on the S2 blows the Nexus away so it also depends on the sensor they use. Normally more MP on a sensor means worse image quality, but they picked a horrible sensor for the Nexus.

    I haven't checked out the phone yet or any reviews, but based on you guys comments it sounds like you are putting the CIA/NSA/Stalker in your pocket. It sounds kinda creepy. Does it wake you up if you have a nightmare?:dong:

    Here is my take on this phone:

    It's an incremental upgrade on the Galaxy Nexus in these ways: screen size, barely; camera, you know, cos more MPs are "better;" CPU/GPU.

    It's a downgrade in these ways: TouchWiz; camera cos of the increase in MPs, lol; developer device it is not

    SD Card could be in either. Thought I would miss expandable storage with the Nexus but I don't.

    I wouldn't consider this phone over my Prime any day. Is it a nice phone? Sure...but it's no Nexus Prime!

    I would disagree. I think the Nexus sensor is pretty good when it comes to cameras on phones. My Dad's S2 isn't much, if any better.

    Can't wait to hear about this 'Intelligent Camera' feature they just showed. It says it captures the best moment for you.

    Anything camera tech on a phone is great in my opinion.
