I am very tempted by the GS3 and especially the Note2. ATT and Verizon's pricing on service is just so expensive I cannot stomach it. And the other guys, Sprint, etc, provide terrible service in my area. I'm doing fine with dumbphone + SGP5.0. Just want better hardware and current android.
Perhaps I just wait and find a refurbished Note2 in a couple of months and use it without contract. Bet that ends up costing $500. but then you've got state of the art everything and a quad core 1.7 gHz procesor.
Or perhaps this Player from Korea-Mars finally shows up in USA a year from now with a camera flash and Jelly Bean android. Most likely it will show up a year from now with gingerbread!
