    Just read that the Galaxy S3 will come to Verizon this month for $199!!. I love my Galaxy Nexus and I swore I would keep this phone for years, a first for me because I buy a phone every year. This is my first time rooting and unlocking. I really love this phone. However, for a brief moment I thought about getting that S3.. I'm not willing to give up my unlimited data just yet. I believe that's why they are releasing with the cheaper price, trying to tempt me even more :). The specs are very nice, but I love the design of my Nexus more. Are any of you planning to upgrade to this divice?

    Nope. Won't be upgrading ever again. Want to keep my options open so I can leave on a whim. I'll do my two years with my Nexus and then I'll be out. S III is a great device but I'm not willing to hold myself hostage an extra 6 months.

    No, I'm sticking with my GNex. Extremely happy with it, especially now on 4.0.4. Pure Android and soft keys huge pluses too...

    Nice pricing on the GS3 though; if I were in the market or due for an upgrade I'd look hard at it.

    Really nice price,but happy with my Nexus and as someone else pointed out 4.0.4 really is a plus for the Nexus owner.

    Wonder if they'll ever get the Exynos to play well with VZW's network?

    The qualcomm outperforms the quad core in performance and battery life. I just read an article on it in the sci/tech section of the android news and weather app.

    Sorry to pop this in here but..... I find it interesting how they released the update for the nexus, and within days, they release the new device... interesting.
    I wonder if moto will do it that way??? Just thinking out loud.

    I am going to stick with the nexus as well. It suits my needs just fine. I'm sure that the few tricks that the S3 can do, pretty soon there will a Rom developed that will include those features. Still can't believe that price though lol.

    I've been hyper-focused on cell technology for many years and have owned too many phones. The GNex is the top of the heap for me, by a long shot. I love this thing! Sure, I'll move on, but it'll have to be for a device that is really a step ahead - just as the GNex was it it's introduction. The SIII looks like a fine phone, but is it a real step beyond what I have now? Nope.

    Happy to wait.
