US launches always seem to lag at least 3-6 months from Euro launches....they're announcing the Galaxy Note at the super bowl in February when it's been available overseas for a few months :p

There was a report done and it showed that EU reviewers tend to give a higher score than a US review. Unfortunately i can't find the link at the moment (at work) but i'll have a look later on and post it here if i can find it.

Perhaps thats the reasoning behind it?

possible. though phone as phones are sold unsubsidized in most of europe it is also likely they make more.profit per phone sold there as big telecom here in the us likely pays less per phone so first shipments follow the money. reviews woudl be interesting as well i'll look for a link as well

Makes a change to the US getting films, games and most other stuff 3-6 months in advance, eh? ;)

I'm guessing the article means "March 13th" rather than "March 2013", although I wasn't sure at first.

The phone on the left looks bricky and ugly. The one on the right isn't bad, but it looks like they're going for "too big" again. It is good how they appear to have trimmed the case and got more screen and less dead space. That said, I'll stick with my Galaxy Ace - still plenty of screen space on there for most things.

Could also be because the EU market has more customers (502 million vs 313 million), a higher GDP in total and per head of population and a larger number of vendors to sign exclusivity deals with, just saying, if I was a cell phone provider I would launch in the market with the most money too.

No it won't launch. Check Android Central. A Sammy official said they're rather waiting to get a separate launch, closer to a WW availability. I would trust this dude more than some cowboy.

While I'm currently happy with my Galaxy Nexus, I'm starting to wish that I waited for this. Oh well, my old phone was dying and I couldn't really wait.

I certainly have my doubts that the first country to receive the Galaxy S III will be Turkey. Usually South Korea is among the first to receive the Galaxy S line.

Maybe not, but neither is Russia or Israel but they all play football in the European Leagues and Turkey is trying to gain membership to the EU, seems geography is irrelevant to certain things and launching a phone into the EU would include Turkey even if they aren't a full member yet.

Pretty sure the item on the left is a camera.
Like frish just said.
