They’ve got a bunch of them instore right now at Pitt St Vodaphone, and there’s quite a party going on with free mocktails, and loads of press filming.

I had a quick play – amazing screen and nice slim light feel, would definitely consider one. But touchwiz is as bad as ever – they’ve really trashed the ICS feel that you get with a Nexus or HTC One….




They didn’t tell us anything we already didn’t know except that it’s available from 11am online and from midday instore, guessing from Vodafone stores as they presented this?

Was hoping for news on whether or not there’ll be a 4g version as well.

Trent Arena

Bit disappointed in the lack of info on 4g also. It’s availble online from Vodafone at 11am and 12pm instore and Optus have it now too


On sale today! WOOOT!!


Screw you vodafone, the live stream was loading half the time.


Yea that was annoying, it started to load properly when the singers came on stage though. =P


Damn I’d much prefer a hot Asian chick than Jessica Rowe…


I’ve got it to load! No more F5 for me!


Jessica Rowe = MC.

When is it coming to Optus?

Phil Tann

You can buy on Optus now!

Dan Murphy

I saw. Right after I posted it the news broke that Optus was selling them and I called them. I’m waiting for the pebble blue.


I think we broke the Vodafone website lol.


#SamsungGS3AU is the official twitter hashtag


And down goes the vodafail website!

The closer it gets to 10 the slower the vodafone website goes,
