If the way they get to 6.3" display is by significantly or completely reducing the bezel size then thats good.
In terms of width the Note 2 is pretty much the widest you can make a phone while keeping it manageable for one-handed use. I still occasionally have problems with it and I have large hands (big enough to barely palm a basketball).
There are large spaces (bezels) on the top and bottom of the Galaxy Note 2 that could be reduced to fit a 6.8" screen. What Samsung will need to do is eliminate their physical home button and capacitive buttons and replace them with on-screen/software buttons.

The only reason I'm somewhat ok with this is that with the advent of Google being able to successfully sell their Nexus 4 devices unlocked online (unlike the Nexus One back in the day) I could buy a future unlocked Nexus from them for $299-$399 and get the cheap value pricing from T-Mobile.

Will the off-contract prices drop as well cause I already used my upgrade on a GS3 but I want to buy a Note 2 and it's $650 now (off contract)

Google Wallet > Anything the greedy carriers can come up with.
I'm so pissed they are banning Google Wallet from our phones. They should allow competitors (you know the company that MAKES the operating system they make a profit on) to compete with them openly.

I use Spotify for 90% of my music needs now. I also uploaded many of my songs to Google Music and use that the other 10% of the time.
I never thought I'd like streaming music as opposed to owning it but I am have found I am much more receptive to the cloud in almost everything I do then I thought I could be.
I'm interested to know why you chose Rdio over Spotify. I use my free monthly streaming music from Rdio from their website because Spotify doesn't allow that yet, and sometimes I don't want to open their app.

Yeah, I'm on T-Mobile and don't think I've ever exceeded 2gigs. Usually I'm at around 1.7gigs/month and I stream music from Spotify all the time, constantly checking FB and Twitter and browsing the web. Well 'constantly' is a relative term, but certainly more than many people I know.

I hope you're right about the S3. Samsung did back a whole lot of original features into it that are useful, like....
--Lock screen ticker
Also, shouldn't Google be suing Apple for stealing the Notification bar/system? I bet if Google and the manufacturers really thought about it and wanted to get ugly (just like Apple) they could find numerous things Apple had "copied" from them.

Launch the HTC One-X+ with an off-contract price of $350 and have carriers subsidize it down to $99
Internal specs should still be top of the line. Maybe pop in a quad-core. If I didn't just use my upgrade on a Galaxy S3 and I knew HTC was releasing the One-X+ off-contract for $350 I would of just bought that phone and kept my upgrade.

Just switched over to the classic plan and I decided on 2gigs of high-speed data. Now I have the peace of mind knowing that I can always upgrade my $20/month 2gigs to $30/month truly unlimited if I absolutely need to.
My family and I were just discussing switching from T-Mobile to AT&T because they were refusing to grandfather in our formerly great 3000min-unlimited text-$20/month 5gigs high speed data plan and allow us to buy subsidized phones.
I was seriously furious and thought about paying the extra $20-$30/month to AT&T because they consistently get the best phones first and even though they have higher monthly prices their high-end devices are constantly on sale.
Now that I see this announcement though, I'm glad I was forced to switch to the classic plan because now T-Mobile will be the only carrier (with fast speeds) offering truly unlimited data. Sprint's networks sucks, and while T-Mobile service may be the spottiest out of the big-4 but when you do get their service, it's incredibly fast and that's without LTE.

I agree with the last point so much. Sell it at $349 unlocked and it will sell like hotcakes. I'm about to upgrade to a Galaxy S3 but I'd sell it on ebay for like $150 and spend $200 on a unlocked next Galaxy Nexus if it truly seems like a superior device.

Sweet, I got referenced in the article!
To add to the fact that I sold my Galaxy Tab 10.1 because of a lack of updates (or seemingly any interest by Samsung to support the device), that bad experience has really tarnished my opinion of Samsung. I've been wanting a Galaxy S3 for months but now with the rumors of an HTC One X+ coming to T-Mobile in September, and the rumored HTC 5" superphone I may hold off buying another Samsung device because I'm not sure if they will roll out updates in a timely fashion.

@SteveClarkeII @ClarkKent113 I got $300 including shipping costs. Spent $250 on the Nexus 7 (after buying the case and paying for shipping and taxes). $50 to spare which I'm fine with. I'm loving having JellyBean and being first in line for the next update. And Google Now is awesome.
9 months, 3 weeks ago on Editorial: Samsung Releases ICS Update For Tab 10.1 8 Months After ICS Source Code Drop: Why I'm Happy
I was so pissed off at the lack of an ICS update (and worse yet going so many months with no official announcements from Samsung until June/July) that I sold my Galaxy Tab 10.1 about a week ago and bought a Nexus 7 with the money I got and still got some change to spare.
Spending $500 on a tablet last year was stupid on my part and now I'm much happier with then Nexus 7 than I ever was with the Galaxy Tab 10.1. I'm even getting used to the smaller former factor which initially worried me about all 7 inch tablets.
Fuck the carriers and them blocking Google products on a GOOGLE platform. No one wants their crap products on their phones..Fail.

This is exactly the question I've been wondering. Hopefully Samsung keeps Google Now when they update The GS3 to JellyBean.

I decided to just get the 8gig version. I think after all the pre-installed software I'll get 5gigs out of it and that's more space than I used out of my 16gig Galaxy Tab 10.1 in the entire year I owned it.

The question I have is that when the US version gets updated with Samsung block access to Google Now because they want to force us to use S-Voice or will be have the ability to replace S-Voice with Google Now?
