$550 - decent price - $400 on the tab, what a great deal for this phone!

On the spiffy side, comes loaded with Jelly Bean as well!

Looks like they beat the rest of the carriers to the punch - outside custom roms(cm10/etc) this the first non Nexus Jelly Bean device in Canada?

iPhone 5 actually does better in a few benchmark tests than the Galaxy S III due to the smaller, more efficient retina display. It doesn't have as much to render. That's... where the advantages pretty much end.

GS III has double the RAM, a bigger battery, running an OS that is leaps and bounds more powerful and customizable, has the bells and whistles like NFC with Android Beam and S-Beam, share shot, burst mode on the camera, special gesture features, and guess what? Our maps actually work properly lol

From what I gather - not an easy decision... Most phones are represented in the office I am working at. For next upgrade the office is pretty well split 33/33/33 on iPhone/Android/Lumia 920... All have ups and downs, nice to see a fair amount of choice available in the market :)

Also a lot of excitement over the durability/camera/smoothness of the Lumia 920 - apps will come, just a matter of time. I personally like the Android ecosystem, will probably be staying the course. Arguments are also to be made for using iPhone and WP8 - the potential WP8 ecosystem is also hot. Native MS Office app is kinda spiffy too :)

Oh to have cash and to make decisions...

ANDROID IS THE FUTURE & with the resources that Google has nobody can innovate quicker and in such leaps and bounds as them. Look at what they have already become in the short amount of time the have existed. Android is the only one drawing the attention of crApple like they are and that is because they are threatened greatly because they know they cant keep up to Android who have blazed past them. Samsung draws the most attention because they have ruined crApples business model of barely innovating on each device they make but still charging a ridiculous price. Samsung has come along and given customers their moneys worth with huge specs and massive innovative features for a high end price, crapple sells their customers mid level technology or outdated technology for a high end price and they cant do that anymore which cuts into their greedy pockets & theyre pissed about it. This is why they patented a bunch of things they didnt invent but just nobody thought to patent it because it seemed ridiculous & thats not how the mobile industry worked. Everybody usebto just share and better eachothers technology. It was their only way to try to slow down Androids rise but its seemed to somwhat backfire because they lost a bunch of users who didnt agree with crapples dirty tactics & especially when crApple themselves kind of exposed in court that they overcharge for their products. Im way off topic but basically like I said ANDROID IS THE FUTURE & even the competition knows this. Get the Galaxy S3 guys seriously your getting your moneys worth 100% -KID ANDROID
