Hey, are you looking to pick up the new Samsung Galaxy S III on day one here in the USA? If so, pre-ordering is your best bet, and all four major carriers now have their Galaxy S III pages live and ready to accept your cash, and US Cellular will do the same on June 12th. Here are the links:
AT&T has announced that it's going to begin pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III on June 6th (the same day that Verizon Galaxy S III pre-orders begin.) Items of note here: first, AT&T will only be selling the 16 GB model, which costs $200. They will not be selling the more spacious 32 GB version. However, they'll also be offering an additional color that isn't available on the other US carriers--red. That makes the three color choices red, white, and blue on AT&T. It's the season of patriotism, so, why not?
Verizon Wireless has announced that it will begin taking pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III beginning on June 6. That's right--in two days you'll be able to put your $200 down for the 16 GB Galaxy S III, or $250 if you'd prefer the 32 GB model. The Verizon Galaxy S III will be compatible with its 4G LTE network, and ships with Android 4.0.

The HTC phones that were being held in customs have been released, which means that the HTC EVO 4G LTE is on its way to stores. If you pre-ordered the device, you likely have it in your hands by now. For the rest of us, we can expect to find the device at our local Sprint outlets on June 2nd. Just remember, Sprint's LTE network is non-existant, but should start its rollout shortly. Anyone planning to pick this one up?
Verizon has just cut the price of the Droid RAZR Maxx by a whopping $100, bringing the price of the long-lasting 4G LTE smartphone down to $199.99 with two-year contract. That's a great price for the supercharged Motorola handset. Verizon is also touting its new partnership with Facebook video app Color, which allows you to share 30-second video snippets over 4G LTE. Speaking of the Droid RAZR Maxx, it should be picking up Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich very, very shortly.
Verizon has officially announced the HTC Droid Incredible 4G LTE, and it's everything we expected it'd be. From the name alone, you know that this is the latest in the Droid Incredible line, powered by a dual-core 1.2 GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, bringing with it Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 4-inch Super LCD qHD display, and HTC Sense 4. An 8 megapixel rear camera is on board, as well as a microSD slot that'll accept up to 32 GB of storage (although, we don't have details yet on onboard memory just yet.) Last, but certainly not least, this is the first Droid Incredible to pack a 4G LTE punch. You can pick one up in the coming weeks.

Sprint is readying for the release of the HTC EVO 4G LTE, and today it moves a step closer to release. Starting today, you can pre-order yourself an EVO 4G LTE for $199.99 (or you can get it for $149.99 from Wirefly) with two-year contract. If you're not eligible for an upgrade, the cost shoots up to $549. Unfortunately, Sprint's LTE network has yet to go live, so the phone will likely be a 3G affair at launch. Disappointing, but, hey, when LTE is lit up on the Now Network, the phone will be ready on day one. Wirefly says the Ice Cream Sandwich device should ship on May 18th.
Samsung just announced its new Galaxy S III smartphone at its Mobile Unpacked event in London, and it's straight up impressive. What can you expect from the new flagship Android device? Here's the rundown:
The Samsung Galaxy Nexus is a fantastic Android device, shipping with a nice, untouched version of Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, and now, it's $100 cheaper than it was yesterday. This brings the price of the Verizon version of the Galaxy Nexus in line with the upcoming CDMA Sprint model, which makes perfect sense.

Normally we wouldn’t trust leaks that come out of Asia since you have to take them with a grain of salt due to the fact that there are so many realistic fakes out there, but on occassion, there are some newsworthy items. Such is the case for the Samsung Galaxy S III, which was spotted on Vietnamese site Tinhte.
Currently, the smartphone goes by the mundane name of GT-I9300. However, if Samsung plans on sticking to its current naming scheme it’ll be called the Galaxy S III, and it should be fantastic. According to Tinhte, the phone boasts a 4.6-inch display with 720 x 1184 resolution. The phone is powered by a quad-core 1.4 GHz processor running Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich smoothly. The phone features 1 GB of RAM and 16 GB of built-in storage that's expandable using the micro SD slot. For those that are addicted to Instagram, you’ll be able to shoot away using the 8 megapixel camera, and the phone is also equipped with NFC.
Since this is a prototype, expect the external look of the phone may change slightly. We’re assuming that Samsung will drop the tacky plastic rim around the handset, for example. Samsung has gone on the record by neither denying nor claiming the GT-I9300 as the next Galaxy S III, only stating “We will be able to tell you more at the 2012 Samsung Mobile Unpacked.” So we’ll just have to wait and see. Until that time, enjoy the video of the leak above.
