Maybe not for the US :(

This one is most likely going to other markets.
Some people appreciate real state in trade of resolution. Might not be the sharpest display but has enough room to do a lot of things with it.
According to the specs the phone mustn't be so expensive, so, many people in other markets where carrier subsidies are not good enough to allow common people to get a top of the line smart-phone but would make good use of a big screened device for his/her work would be interested on acquiring such device.
It wouldn't be too appealing to most people in the US though, because most users look for a good device to consume media.

Yeah I don't see it coming to the U.S. It just doesn't make any sense anyway especially with the Galaxy S IV on the horizon. The price on the III would be low enough at that point.

For the people that wants a cheap off contract phone a former top of the line smart-phone will be the right one to pick.
In about a year and a half maybe carriers will be offering the GS III or HTC One X at $50 with a two year tier XD.

No way, the GS II right now is still a $400.00 phone (full price). T-Mobile upgrade price is $149.99.

Yes off course, you are right but the target market is available in USA also, it may be take some month to lauch in USA at lower level of Carrier.

Yes; maybe on a smaller prepaid carrier.
A phone like this should retail at about $200-$250 because it lacks high end specs and features.

For me at least it would be nice to have a phone with such a large screen, being affordable and functional.
I do not live at the U.S. but my phone allows me to detach myself from my computer without loosing a business opportunity (I bet you can't guess how low is the amount that I pay for 1.4GB of data a month on a prepaid service).

I need to move a lot in order to keep myself on the business and certainly anybody is prone to get robed out there in the street. I can't imagine myself loosing a $600+ high-end smart-phone just because a guy wanted to buy some crack... (I've never been robed though)
