Samsung Galaxy S III getting OTA update on Verizon and T-Mobile today

If you're a 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.

Galaxy S III to get Jelly Bean “in the coming months”

Samsung has confirmed that a Jelly Bean 4.1 update is coming to all iterations of the Galaxy S III. This sounds like fantastic news, but it's coated in some less than stellar details. When asked for a time frame, Samsung only offered that it would be "in the coming months."

LG phones beat Samsung in battery life

LG is claiming battery superiority, and it has just performed tests designed to prove it. LG tested its own Optimus G against a Samsung Galaxy S III. This is an interesting move on LG's part. Going directly at one of its competitors and coming out ahead with a feature as important as battery life could be quite important for LG.

Best Buy has Samsung Galaxy S III on sale for $99 this Sunday only

Are you looking to grab a 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]
