Hilarious. I live in Ukraine and Galaxy S III is available starting at 4600 UAH, while they want to offer Galaxy Premier, a WEAKER device, in 1.5 months for a HIGHER price.

Samsung really made my day with recommended price on Premier being higher than that of S III. Lets all sell Galaxy S III and put a higher price on anything else, so that we can say "hey our Galaxy S III sells like hot cakes!"

In other news, when I asked a shop assistant to show me something "like Galaxy S III but smaller", he gave me... Galaxy Duos. Design is similar, true, but I asked for same or similar HARDWARE, not design. Oh those shops hiring anyone who asks for a smaller payment without giving a damn about knowing what you sell...

Anyway, its too expensive. I paid $749 for my Note II, so how a massively inferior dualcore pentile phone can cost almost 700?? Thats just cray and it cannot be Samsungs SRP.

Hope It is priced sensibly. It's indeed a refreshed Galaxy Nexus but with Touch Wiz UI of 'Plastic'sung. Hope some day they release some device with premium non plastic material! :)
