Just a couple observations/opinions

While watching the Samsung "unpacked" event, I noticed how they were making a big deal about the way that the phone notifies you if you missed important calls or text messages. There is a much simpler, and though I've not yet used the s3 (obviously) probably more efficient way of notifying the user of missed calls and messages. It's been around for a while...LED. I had a Sanyo phone back in 2004 that would notify me from across the room that I had a missed call or message by a tiny blinking light that was easy to spot. Why Samsung refuses to put an LED on their phones (I may be wrong, but I think the Sprint version of the s2 had an LED) to notify a user of missed calls/messages is beyond me. Second, while they didn't actually mention a release date for the US, "summer" was the term that was used. I might be being a little pessimistic here, but does anybody else think that means we won't be getting this device until late September at the earliest? Once again, by the time the phone is available here in the states it will already be old news, and reports of the S4 will already be surfacing. That being said, I'm sure I'll be in line to get one when they are finally released here in the states.
