So any idea when the G S III will be available on T-Mobile?
At this time we do not have any information on a release date for this device.
Take this with a grain of salt:
Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB Metallic Blue – June 20th Samsung Galaxy S III 32GB Metallic Blue – June 20th T-Mobile myTouch (Huawei Phoenix) – July 11th T-Mobile myTouch (Huawei Buddy) – July 11th Samsung Galaxy S III 16GB Ceramic White – July 11th Samsung Galaxy Note – July 11th
Given the potential spec for this device, I'm liking what I'm seeing .
The battery is the good old changeable kind (unlike the One S), and it has a MicroSD slot that may support up to the newest 64GB cards (again, unlike the One S).
The only device on my "might get it" list at this point is the SGS III.
Can't say I'm liking the look of the potential spec of the T-Mobile version, only a dual core CPU . Oh well, I'll be hanging onto my Sensation for a while longer.

BUt it will (?) have more memory. More memory is almost always better than a faster and/or more processors.

I'd rather have BOTH .
I'm hearing the quad-core version of the One X was not well optimized and drains battery even for simple activities. I'd like a quad-core version of the SGS3 to be released by T-Mobile that is well optimized. (I need it from T-Mobile to have my WiFi Calling .)
All of the US SGS3 will have the dual core only. Something bout how the Exynos chip will not play well with LTE. I think even Canada is getting the Snapdragon dual core chip becuase of that issue.
I'm with you darnell, I'd rather have both!
The HTC One X is weird on power management, but it is clearly better than my Sensation was, especially if you consider the stock battery on the Sensation. I have almost the same things syncing on my One X as I did my Sensation but the One X will make it through the day, whereas my Sensation with an extended battery usually wouldn't.
I'm trying to decide now which Galaxy S III to get: T-Mobile's, AT&T's or the international version.
Given T-Mobile does not have LTE yet, I don't really see the point in them leaving out the Exynos chip.
Oh yea, I know why they left it out, because most buyers don't care and they can sell a dual core SGS3 for less . I just wish they didn't take the cheap route .
This is a well put together case for getting the T-Mobile SGS3. It has me actually considering getting this again.
Is there an issue with supporting HSPA+ 42 with the Exynos chip? I seem to remember that being offered as a reason for sticking with dual-core in the past.
According to this spec sheet the international version with the Exynos quad-core processor caps out at HSPA+ 21, which does indeed confirm the idea that TM will prefer the Snapdragon processor because of network performance, rather than processor performance.
I misspoke in the earlier message, and should have said "sticking with the Snapdragon" rather than "sticking with dual core", though the S4 which is going into our version is still dual core.
The SGS3 is launching June 21st on T-mo with the Snapdragon S4 dual-core chip but with 2GB's of RAM. So while I really would have liked to see the Exynos 4 in my next phone, I'm not too mad considering we're getting 2 GBs of RAM unlike the international version..
Lates spec sheet.
Galaxy S III changes pin layout, incompatible with previous MHL adapters
