It seems that Dubai has blessed its residents and begun selling the Galaxy SIII. A Redditor saw a poster that claimed the phone is available, talked to a sales clerk, and he confirmed that the white version is now available for $666. Another person tipped The Verge with photos of the white Galaxy SIII he had purchased for about $680.
Those who pre-ordered the phones can’t get them, while in Dubai, anyone can just go and buy one. It’s a bit unfair, as those who did pre-order have to wait until May 29th in Europe. And us Americans have to wait until June. What agony, to know someone has that phone in their hands right now.
