Most likely so, as I use the I9100 with hspa+ and unlimited data for $15.

I personally don't mind not having lte, especially since nyc hspa gives me 4-6 down and 2 up unlimited.

My two places of choice are expansys uk and clove.co.uk. Either one of those two I'll be ordering mine from. I usually get overnight AM delivery with expansys coming to New York

I've pre-ordered mine from Expansys NZ.

For any other Kiwis around here:
Expansys
Mobicity

Two places I've found available for pre-order so far. Mobicity have a price, Expansys don't (yet). Although Mobicity will want payment up front.

For me personally it is also important to consider insurance. If I'm forking over 700 US$ I want to protect my investment

Amazon has them but hardly ever at release date. MoCity usually have them but the price is normally more expensive from what I remembered. Clove normally had the best price.

But from my experience with clove and expansys, you have to pay upfront. But remember this for those in the USA, if you order from UK sites we don't pay vat and the total including shipping is cheaper than ordering from America.

With regards to insurance, never had a problem personally, but if I did samsung has warranty covering it.

I ordered by Galaxy Nexus through Handtec (handtec.co.uk) and had a good experience with them. If I do pull the trigger and order a GS3 then I will probably do it through them. Depending on price.
