    Samsung has vowed to bring most of their "wow" new features from the Galaxy S IV over to their previous-gen flagship devices, the SGS3 and the GNote2. Here's a quote with some of the details,

    It makes sense if you think about it. The modularity of the Android OS makes it such that if the hardware is capable of handling the needs of the software, there is no reason they couldn't make the new SGS4 features available on the SGS3 and GNote2. Kudos to Samsung if they make this happen. Of course, it suggests a question... if you own an SGS3 or GNote2, and it will be able to do what the SGS4 can do, then why upgrade at all? What do you guys think?

    Its smart. One of the knocks on Samsung early was their lack of support and failure to update. If I know you will support my high end phone for at least a year and a half I am more likely to buy your product again when it comes upgrade time. It is one of the reasons apple customers are so loyal.

    Haha so that's the device you moved on to huh?

    Note II is a little too big for me, though I may just trial it for a week just to see what it's like. Still happy with my Gnex for now:)

    Yep, it was like going from a 911 Carrera to the Turbo! After just a few days the phone doesn't seem very big any more at all. And it's very thin and light so the pocket is no trouble.

    Now let's just hope that Verizon doesn't screw it up.
