I was hoping it wouldn't have a pentile screen but I will probably be picking it up anyways. Hopefully the high DPI will make up for it.

Honestly, it doesn't matter. I know for SURE 100% it will come to TMOBILE.
The specs may be different, because the version that is currently out is INTERNATIONAL, the US version will prob have software buttons like Gnex etc.
Samsung has always released every Galaxy to ALL US carriers, why stop now?

Not true with respect to all carriers. More like all major carriers and this past year T-Mobile is questionable with regards to being a major carrier.

Us major carriers
ATT
VERIZON
SPRINT
TMOBILE

That's the big 4 carriers of USA.
Others like cricket, metro are relatively smaller than the 4
However I do agree tmo is the smallest of the four, but it is larger then the rest by quite a bit still, even with its significant decline in customers

^People are stupid for assuming and believing rumored specs. I'm ok with the specs to be honest....just some people were expecting too much which is their own fault.

And when the iPhone comes out with '****' specs, then expect the same results. Not that I care about Apple.

so tmobile is going to setup their LTE network on the 1700/2100 mhz AWS band and they're going to move they're HSDPA+ network on the 1900 mhz band which the GS3 supports. they've already started doing this in some markets so if you bought the international version it would work on tmobiles 3g network if you're in the right market for now, but by early 2013 it would be covered in all of tmobiles coverage area. For now you could get 3g speeds with the international GS3 in the Pacific Northwest, Nevada, Utah and California. I've read that some people also mentioned Chicago pretty recently but I dont know how true that is. Damit I hope it comes to New York soon.

So I'm living in California and travel to Utah on a regular basis. If I got the international GS3 I would be able to use the 3G+ speeds on T-mobile? Does that same thing apply to the HTC One X international as well then? This is very interesting indeed.

I think for now its only a few select places in those regions. I don't know for sure how T-Mobile will reframe the spectrum but from what I've read they're putting their HSPA+ network in the 1900 MHz frequency but not in every single region. For example New York City and LA will still be on the AWS (1700/2100 MHz) frequency after the LTE upgrades. To me this doesn't make sense, why put HSPA+ on the 1900 MHz frequency and the LTE on the 1700/2100 MHz frequency in some regions and flip it in other regions. Wouldn't they want to have a unified LTE network. So as you can see there are still too many uncertainties. And on top of that these LTE upgrades won't start until the beginning of 2013. The only certainty in this equation is that T-Mobile is doing some sort of reframing to their network. But there's too much doubt into everything else, so much that is it worth investing on the GS3 for you? So its not worth it to get an international phone on hopes that you will get 3g speeds sometimes in the future cause it may or may not happen in your area and even if it does it may not be until mid 2013, a full year from now. On the other hand if you don't care about 3g speeds then by all means.
