Legal Five US carriers, nearly identical devices, millions and millions of pre-orders, virtually simultaneous launch - and that's just the US. The Galaxy SIII might be hideous, Samsung is still doing something right here. No surprise, then, that Apple has, once again, decided to compete in the court room instead of on the shelves: they're asking for a US import ban on the SIII [FOSS Patents link].

I wouldn't expect Korean (or Japanese, or Chinese) companies to be "cool" for very long. Heck, this is even the case with western companies (Apple). They only serve their customers only on the way up, once they reach their targets (monopoly or near monopoly) they switch back to heavy-handed policies.

Remember how cool Sony was in '80-90s? Since then Sony has changed into pure evil and Samsung has taken their place (which is why it was gaining the market share so fast). Once Samsung shareholders get comfortable with their portfolio the company will switch to defensive tactics as well, likely leaving room to some Chinese brands.
