    Reading that almost made me go blind. It looks bad on tapatalk. But I hope this phone comes out soon. A month long pre order seems a tad long. The iPhone pre orders are usually a week maybe 2 at the most.

    It's smart, Vzw doing that helps build hype. They just need to capture it at the right moment. Wait too late and people move on. though I believe a lot of the hype it's built up by us reading rumors and basically showing ourselves to get hooked on a rumor

    So, in what way will the S3 be better than the Nexus?

    Better screen, processor, more ram, memory card slot, better camera (same as the iPhone 4s). Smart stay which is a cool feature.

    When I pre-ordered two at Best Buy today, their computers had an estimated release date of June 28th.

    I thought they changed their return policy to just 14 days?

    Alternatively, you can use your upgrade on the newest phone out their, sell it new on EBAY, and then use the proceeds to buy the SG3. It will still cost you more, but you should be able to save $200 anyway.

    looks like the rumor was true... Verizon's preorder shipping date is July 9th

    although it's pretty funny that the confirmation email says it is shipping today. which I know isn't actually going to happen.

    Yes, VZW's return policy is 14 days...it has been since at least January, when I bought a phone for a friend's birthday.

    I just pre-ordered mine and my confirmation states that it will ship "by June 6th"..which I am foolishly hoping is true!!!

    The good news is that my existing unlimited data plan is included!!! Now the wait begins.....

    My ship by date actually says 6/6/2012, which is obviously wrong, but gave me about a tenth of a second of happiness before I realized it was wrong.
