    That's actually not that surprising of a price. I recall the Note going for something absurd like $900 unlocked when it first came out.

    I have one on pre-order from Negri. That's the 16 GB version at $695.

    The 64GB version is over $900.

    I'm considering getting one if it will work with 4G on T-Mobile. Although, I can't really think of a good reason why I need to upgrade from my SG2.

    Is handtec reputable? Fast shipping to US? How does the warranty work for US customers? It's 694 for the pre order. I've never imported a phone. Please tell me everything I should expect.

    Did that include shipping? What USA carrier will you be using, and how do you get it to work on the USA carries network? I am thinking about getting the international version.

    The Blue SG3 at Negri now says: EXPECTED SHIP DATE: 5.25.2112

    Not too far away. Assuming of course 2112 means 2012.

    And the price has dropped $3.

    Samsung have announced retail partners can start shipping pre-ordered the S3 after 7pm on the 27th May. Does anyone know if CPW are a retail partner and if so will pre-ordered hand sets be shipped on the 27/28th

    So will I be able to buy this and use it on tmobile USA? Does it support the 1700 band??

    Anyone know? I'll buy now if so!!

    On the site it says this:

    * Unconfirmed that the SGSIII will have 1700 3/4G. Verbal confirmation from Samsung Latin America Rep 5/3/2012 stated “Yes”

    LOL, which sounds like BS just to get us to buy it...

    Just got the following email from Negri:


    Looks like I'll have to wait a week longer. I ordered the white.

    On the plus side, I'll get $25 off the final price.

    Very professional of Negri. Some companies wouldn't have give any info until you called asking where your order was.
