I'm def getting it when it comes stateside!!! But I'm selling my galaxy note to offset the subsidy. I use both iPhone 4S and the Note!...best of both worlds!!
I agree with you on portability and it's why I will be getting the S3. If I had to keep one I would choose the iPhone because I have a Mbp.Which of those do you like better? I also have the Note and love it, but the portability of it is starting to irritate me. Can't really use it comfortable with 1 hand, and although it technically does fit in my pockets, it does not do so comfortably. After 3 months....I get the feeling I may be "Ebaying" the Note and will stick with iPhone, at least until i see the new model.
I've looked into it and the ui just looks...strange to me, no other way of putting it.Honestly I'd try a Windows Phone before I tried an Android. I'm not saying that with contempt, I honestly think that WP looks pretty snazzy.
I am by no means ready to drop my Apple ecosystem, but if I was an unbiased, new smartphone purchaser, who didn't own a Mac (which is a HUGE percentage of the new smartphone market) I would look very strongly at WP. Very sharp.
