When Verizon declared that it is already accepting pre-orders for the [easyazon-link asin=”B0080DJ6CM” locale=”us”]Samsung Galaxy S III[/easyazon-link] starting June 6th, it left out the information regarding when the pre-orders will be shipping out. Some speculated that the Android smartphone will be available on the third week of June, owing to the fact that T-Mobile and Sprint are also releasing the Galaxy S III at this time.
It would be logical, since Verizon would want to compete with the two telecommunications companies. However, a leak revealed that the Galaxy S III will be available much later for Verizon customers, specifically on July 9th. This places their ship out date at a full three weeks after Sprint and T-Mobile sends out the handset to their customers.
Verizon has already confirmed the date on their website, which means that this ship out date is already final. We do not know what caused the delay, or if it is really a delay at all or in fact a marketing tactic. In any case, it is good news nonetheless that Verizon is carrying the Galaxy S III. Earlier, it had been uncertain whether Verizon would even be offering the device.
As a consolation, users of the Samsung Galaxy S III on Verizon would most probably be getting a live broadcasting app called Color. Verizon and Color signed an exclusive partnership last month that possibly implies that this app will be available on the new phone. Color will allow users to capture moments from their lives, then share it in a live broadcast feed with their friends on Facebook via Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network. They can also batch upload images easily with just one tap. For Verizon users, the app is free, but there will be data charges on its downloading depending on the consumer’s chosen contract.
The Samsung Galaxy S III is Samsung’s latest smartphone offering. It sports a 4.8-inch Super AMOLED High Definition screen, a 1.5 GHz dual-core processor, and 2 GB of RAM. On Verizon, users can access the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network with this device.
