Wow, what a rip-off

The US market is getting screwed again.

No Quad Core
No 64GB version

They could have used the Exynos 4 chip but according to an article online:

"Although it would have been possible for them to adopt the Exynos 4 Quad SoC and combine it with a separate baseband chip, that would have taken a lot of time to implement."

So it seems that Samsung just wanted to get the S3 to the US market as fast as they could. So the fastest way was to trim it down below the EU and Asia versions. *sigh*

I am sure the phone will be fine and consumers will love it but I just feel that the US market is getting the shaft on this.
