just announced that they are bringing the Samsung Galaxy S III to market this weekend. Select MetroPCS stores will have the device available this weekend. Starting Monday, October 22, MetroPCS will have Samsung's monster phone available at all MetroPCS retailers and on MetroPCS.com. This is some awesome news for people looking to pick up a top of the line smartphone without getting stuck in a carrier contract.
Samsung Galaxy S III owner and either a T-Mobile or Verizon customer, you should be getting an OTA today. Unfortunately, it isn't the update to Jelly Bean everyone has been waiting for, but luckily Samsung said earlier today that the Galaxy S III should be getting good ol' Android 4.1, so at least there's that. In any case, T-Mobile has announced that a particularly tiny update is going out over the air to Galaxy S III owners starting today, and it only makes some very minor changes.
Verizon have apparently been working hard with Samsung to offer a variety of choices regarding one of their most popular smartphones. The Samsung Galaxy S III initially launched only in White and Blue color options, but now those on Big Red have two additional choices. What will you decide?
Samsung Galaxy S III on the cheap? This Sunday, Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile has the Galaxy S III on sale for only $99 bucks. This deal applies to all major US carriers such as At&T and Verizon with the exception of T-Mobile. This deal only applies to customers signing a new contract or those eligible for an upgrade. This means you will have to be willing to sign a new two-year agreement to grab this deal. If you are looking to pick up a device without a contract, you will still be looking at full price. Make sure to check with your carrier for upgrade eligibility before you make the treck down to your local Best Buy. The deal is available on Galaxy S III device in Pebble Blue or Marble White. Unfortunately, AT&T's exclusive Garnett Red is not included in the deal. Either way, it's hard to complain about a missing color when you can pick up one of the hottest Android phones on the market for $100 off the normal price. The lack of T-Mobile support seems rather odd, with T-Mobile just announcing that the device is currently its best selling device. Perhaps it was T-Mobile's choice to sit this one out since they are moving so many units of the device to begin with. Either way, this Sunday, October 14, is the perfect time to grab an S III for a great deal. [timeline] [via Talk Android]
Samsung have officially revealed their new Galaxy S III Mini as well as all those specs that were leaked earlier this week. Sadly, they were accurate. For those hoping for an impressive Galaxy S III Mini with similar specs in a smaller chassis -- you'll be disappointed. Samsung's still put together a great little phone, it just isn't quite what we were expecting or hoping for.
Galaxy S III would be upgraded to Android Jelly Bean in the near future. Fast forward to the end of September, and users in Europe were treated to the Jelly Bean update via Samsung’s Kies. Now users in South Korea can upgrade their Galaxy S III smartphones to the latest Android version.
Galaxy S III until Samsung releases the much-talked about 64GB variant, you may want to pay attention to this next story. A listing for the 64GB variant of the Galaxy S III has popped up on the website of Italian retailer ePrice, which suggests that the handset isn't that far away from launch. Get ready to pay a pretty hefty sum of money for the new Galaxy S III though, because ePrice gives it a price tag of €800 - that's just over 1,000 American dollars.
