US Cellular also gets in on the Galaxy S III action

If you're one of the many smartphone fans that have been waiting in anticipation for the Samsung Galaxy S III smartphones to land in the United States, it will be coming this month with some specifications that are a bit changed from the first time we talked about the smartphone.
Samsung has announced that the smartphone will be coming on all four major service providers in the United States. That means no matter if you're on AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, or Verizon, you will be able to get the smartphone starting this month. Even US Cellular customers are shown some love by Samsung. The phone will launch at $199 for the 16GB model and $249 for the 32GB model on all carriers June 21st.
“The U.S. launch of the Galaxy S III is the most anticipated launch of the year. As promised, we are delivering the ‘next big thing’ for U.S. customers and across all major carriers,” said Dale Sohn, president of Samsung Telecommunications America. “Galaxy S III introduces new technological innovation and takes sharing to the next level.” 
The S III boasts a 4.8-inch display with a thin bezel for maximum viewable area. The phone weighs 4.7 ounces and is 8.6 mm thick. The device supports 4G LTE connectivity for fast data and file transfers -- that is assuming the buyer is in an LTE covered area.

The S III introduces the next version of Samsung's content sharing service called AllShare Play. This technology allows the smartphone to automatically recognize other Samsung devices on the user's home network and remotely access files on those other devices. A Wi-Fi network is required for that feature to operate. The smartphone also supports easy sharing for images and uses S-Beam technology to directly share large files such as video and photographs between compatible devices.
The mobile phone runs the Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich operating system and has Samsung's TouchWiz user interface. The phone runs a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 1.5GHz dual core processor (Samsung announced a 1.4GHz quad-core Exynos SOC for world markets) with 2 GB of RAM. The Galaxy S III will be offered in marble white or pebble blue colors.
“The Galaxy S III is the most innovative smartphone on the market today. It is an industry first to see five major carriers align behind the launch of a single device virtually simultaneously,” said Todd Pendleton, Chief Marketing Officer for Samsung Telecommunications America. “To support the immense excitement for the Galaxy S III we will execute our biggest marketing campaign ever. Consumers won’t be able to miss why this device is the must-have smartphone.”

Unless the entire market has been taken into account how can anybody claim it's representative?

And no I am not discounting a huge number of sales, I'm discounting a huge number of sales to people who have to use budget resellers. In itself that's a fraction of the market and is simply a poor representation of premium handset sales.

Is that so hard to understand?

You gotta put it in the right language, he's from down south. ;)

If there were 10000 cows and 50000 pigs in Broward county. The local feed store has pig food, but really specializes in cow food, therefore offers cow food at a greatly reduced rate because they buy in bulk and get discounts etc etc. NOw all the cattle ranchers in Broward county shop there... Based on the sales at that feed store you would surmise that cow food outsells pig food in Broward county. The fact is its one store and only a subset of the full info, a cow-centric subset.

Sorry reclaimer, I had to =)
