PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Daniel 'Codeworkx' Hillenbrand on why he's not going to work on cm10 for the Galaxy SIII anymore: "Before the release of the Samsung Galaxy S II we were promised support and devices. We received the S2 and the whole community was praising Samsung. To me, that was nothing but a good PR stunt, because there has not been even the slightest bit of support ever since. Actually Samsung vehemently refuses to hand out any information or even a single line of code to us. Our contact at Samsung seems to be willing to support us, but gets blocked by his superiors." His advice to prospective Android buyers is clear. "All manufacturers have an equally bad update policy, so if you like a Samsung device, just buy it. If you want to use AOSP or CyanogenMod on the other hand, you should stay away from Exynos devices, because they just don't meet the requirements. Instead I recommend you to buy Nexus or Qualcomm/OMAP devices that haven't been completely botched by the manufacturer."

then buy only Nexus devices.

Perhaps I would have if Google hadn't gone full retard and left out SD storage. A monumentally idiotic decision.
As it stands I would rather go with some dirt cheap local or Chinese phone that's mostly stock Android and at least has a damn SD slot.

I would buy Nexus stuff IF I COULD.

Not available in The Netherlands, like Surface.

Yeah, lack of availability is also a strike against it. Not that I would buy it anyway unless I surprisingly came into possession of wast amounts of cash that I just had to spend.

I know you have a few friends here in the States, would you be against one of them buying for you and mailing it? Or would there be import/export issues related to not being able to purchase it locally in the first place?
