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 won't buy a phone if it doesn't come in white (or red, but they don't exist).

I won't buy *any* electronic device if its only option is white. As a long-time Nintendo fan, I didn't even consider buying the Wii until the black system came out. I refuse to own that disgusting white thing. Apple sucks for many reasons... popularizing the color white and the "oooh shiny" plastic finish is just one reason. Now I got my black Wii, but unfortunately the damn thing is still a glossy fingerprint magnet. Nintendo needs to take design ideas from their past systems... not Apple. Apple's just a bad influence for electronic design, IMO.

I just hope Apple (or anyone) doesn't start weaving white carbon fiber one day.

Wouldn't that be somewhat sturdier and lighter than all these glass+metal devices we see these days ? I still can't figure out what kind of design nazi could think that using these to build a cellphone was a good idea...

(and I must note how it's essentially partly white, as is the Game Boy or US SNES ...but yeah, at least not glossy)
