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.
