Verizon's international abilities

I have been trying to get an answer to this but haven't seen any info online. I know Verizon is promising to update the SGS3 to have global capabilities in the future. I will be spending significant time in Europe where 4G is a ways off, and want to be able to use HSPA+ while I'm there. My understanding is that Verizon's version, once updated, will allow for global roaming but using GSM.

My question is this: will the chipset have HSPA+ available that a firmware update (hack) could unlock? I know T-Mobile's version has HSPA+ but no LTE and of course no CDMA. I will still spend significant time in the US and don't want to give up my Verizon unlimited data and want to have 4G while in the US; otherwise I would buy the international versio...

Why is it that Verizon will be the last out of the gate with new S3?? We want it now, not later. Just stupid..

US vs International regarding cores.

US version is only dual core, but the international is quad core? US has smaller battery too. I wonder why the difference.
I'm happy to see it's a world phone!

Benefits of 2gb's of RAM?. . .

WILL 2gb's of RAM make homescreen icons & folders
reload faster after pressing the home button?

This is sooo rare that those of us in the U.S.
actually getting an improvement in specs compared
to Europe!!!

Who cares about quad-core, there have been plenty
of YouTube vids proving the S4 is just as capable
as the quad-core, the S4 processor can even handle
Tegra 3 games, with ease.
