AT&T confirms Galaxy S III pre-orders should arrive by June 25

Samsung's much anticipated Galaxy S III flagship smartphone is finally arriving here in the US. Sadly the launch and initial push isn't as simultaneous as they had hoped. After multiple reports from almost all carriers came out stating “manufacturer supply constraints” including AT&T, today they've confirmed many should be arriving today, and more on June 25th.

Verizon DROID Incredible 4G launching June 21, Galaxy S III on 28th

Verizon should be having a pretty solid month of June according to some new sources that have come forward as of late. We've heard various reports as to when the Galaxy S III would arrive on Verizon, some stating the first week of July but new details have the release date aiming at June 28th. Then that other phone, the DROID Incredible 4G LTE that we seem to have forgot about. It will also be here later this month if rumors hold on.

Sony Xperia Ion leak suggests June release

While the Sony Xperia S has been making friends and influencing people overseas, its American cousin the Xperia Ion has been patiently and silently waiting in the wings at AT&T. There's been no official word on when Sony's flagship device will come to the US carrier, but a sharp-eyed member at Droid Matters spotted an advertisement in his Gmail inbox stating that the phone was scheduled for a June release. The ad links to a Sony page, not AT&T, so presumably the manufacturer made the error.

HTC EVO 4G LTE lands on May 18th for $199

Pre-orders are nice, but there's no substitute for knowing exactly when your shiny new gadget will be sitting in your hands. For those fans of hyperbolic acronyms eagerly awaiting the HTC EVO 4G LTE, that day is May 18th. The much-anticipated variant of the HTC One X will cost $199.99 with a two-year contract. The carrier hasn't said how much the phone will cost outright, but somewhere in the range of $600 is a fair bet.

Samsung Galaxy S III hits the UK on May 30th

Here's the bad news, Brits: you won't be able to buy the Samsung Galaxy S III on May 29th, like most of mainland Europe. But the good news is you won't have to wait much longer: a Samsung UK representative tells us that the phone is coming to the UK on May 30th. There's no word on pricing or which carriers will offer a subsidy, but the UK version will certainly be the HSPA+ phone with the Samsung Exynos 4 Quad processor shown on stage earlier today.

Galaxy S III release date: May 29th in Europe

Samsung has spent the last hour telling us how great the Galaxy S III is, but they saved the real treat for last. The Galaxy S III will launch in Europe on May 29th, with a worldwide tour and release following. Samsung did not mention what the device would cost, or in which specific European countries it would be available.

Rumor: DROID Incredible 4G coming May 10th

Ready for HTC's next phone on Verizon? According to PhoneDog, it'll be arriving on Big Red on May 10th. The HTC DROID Incredible 4G has been spoiled beyond surprise at this point, and since it's appeared on Droid Does we know it's coming soon, but not how soon. PhoneDog quotes an anonymous source, so treat this date with a grain of salt, but it certainly makes sense considering how much we've been seeing of the DROID Incredible 4G lately.
