Boo-urns. I was hoping to grab one this week since my Rogers contract expires on the 15th. Guess it will have to wait a little longer.

I had no chance of getting my credit card before the 20th, so this means nothing to me

Sucks for everybody else though.

Credit to acquire something that depreciates as quickly as mobile tech?

I'm blaming the Snapdragons and LTE for this delay. If North America wasn't so obsessed with LTE, we'd have the quad core Exynos by now.

No, credit card because I don't have one and I need to build credit. (Secured card) S3 just so happens to be coming around when I should be getting it

But the LTE dual core krait SGS3 is actually faster than the quad exynos. I'd rather have it. Plus better battery life. And not that many apps are optimized for quad core anyways.

I'm all for quad core phones but in this case the A9 quad is not as good as the newer tech S4 Krait dual core

Uhh, if you've tried LTE, you would know it's a vastly superior experience to HSPA.
I have a One X LTE, and absolutely love it, it's blazing fast, not just network performance, but the S4 processor is a beast.

Disable LTE and enjoy the increased battery life.

Quad is nice, but from what i understand the extra cores are unused anyways, making the dual Krait a better short and medium term option anyways.
