I have some questions.

A. i read the following in a comment

what I'm even more excited about, is the S3 version for South Korea.

They get the Quad-Core CPU as well as 2GB of RAM. As the Quad Core does not yet work with LTE, they implemented a seperate LTE chip. I'm glad that I haven't bought it yet. This version is scheduled for release at the end of July.

Is this true?????

B will the s3 get jellybean?

C is it actually worth getting? or will there be a newer better phone in like 3 months -.-

D will this phone be compatible woth the phone company redpocket????

most important questions are A n D....

' thanks!

I can answer C and D for you.

C: The tech world is ever evolving and there will always be a new thing out every week. The S 3 is no exception. There might be another phone that'll outshine the S 3, you never know.

D: Yes it will work on Red Pocket, since I assume you're getting the GSM version (AT&T or T-Mobile) preferably AT&T, since you don't have to unlock it.

The actual price for the device without contract is $549.99. However, you can check online or craigslist for Galaxy S III's for cheap. AT&T won't sell you one for $250 because you're not signing a contract.

oh well idk i just took a guess... what IS the price?

(Jun 29 '12 at 15:15) sebastianq28 sebastianq28's gravatar image

$549.99 is the no commitment price, according to AT&T's website.

*1-year contract, 2-year contract, and No Commitment Pricing require voice plan with qualifying monthly data plan required.

No commitment is what you're looking for, the no contract, but it seems you still have to buy a plan. Hmm.. Look for alternate sources to buy the phone.

and u say this based on what?

(Jun 28 '12 at 20:10) sebastianq28 sebastianq28's gravatar image

Jelly Bean just came out, and they'd have to upgrade every phone to Jelly Bean.

There is an unofficial port running. I haven't tried it but it appears to be a modified version of the Nexus preview released today. According to xda bugs appear rampant though.

I say this based on the fact jelly bean was just released and samsung has custom things on the s3. This means it will take a while to make these all compatible with jelly bean.

(Jun 29 '12 at 10:21) ryebread761 ryebread761's gravatar image

but the s3 is the TOP android phone right now. wouldnt it be one of the first phone to get it in maybe 3 - 4 months?

and can anyone awnser any other questions? ESPECIALLY my first one. please awnser it... thanks!

That is a while in the tech world

(Jun 29 '12 at 13:50) ryebread761 ryebread761's gravatar image

First phone to get it is the Samsung Nexus actually.

(Jun 29 '12 at 13:53) DJ Scooby Doo DJ%20Scooby%20Doo's gravatar image

i knoe bot i mean apart from the nexus. so thats a good timeframe? 3 or 4 months?

(Jun 29 '12 at 14:07) sebastianq28 sebastianq28's gravatar image

Probably 2-3, I mean they'd have to work on everything, including S-Voice.

(Jun 29 '12 at 14:12) DJ Scooby Doo DJ%20Scooby%20Doo's gravatar image

NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!! your saying that s-voice will remain and the NEW 1000000000x better google voice will be removed?

(Jun 29 '12 at 14:25) sebastianq28 sebastianq28's gravatar image

S-Voice is the bread and butter of the S3, so it won't replace the stock google voice, but it will take a bit longer to develop since they have to work on the engine to work on Jelly Bean.

A: Yes that is very likely to be true, don't know for sure, but most LTE devices are dual core because the LTE chips and Quad core processors tend to be incompatible with each other, It's been an issue for other phones in the past as well. In Europe they don't include the LTE chips so there are less problems.

B: Most likely, and it will take them some time, they will need to port over most of their UI customization and unfortunately they will probably work to get S-Voice's engine on it.

C: There will always be a better phone out in 3 months. It is nearly impossible to stay on top of the bleeding-edge of technology, let alone, smartphone technology.

D: I have no idea. If it's a GSM carrier then most likely, however, if they use some odd frequencies there may be issues. I have no experience or prior knowledge of Redpocket.
