Looks like AT&T customers don’t get all the Galaxy S III pre-order glory this morning as Verizon Wireless’ customers are also pre-ordering their own smartphones this morning. Available in both 16GB and 32GB varieties, the Galaxy S III is available for $199.99 and $249.99 respectively in your choice of “Blue” or “White.”
As you can see in the image above, we walked ourselves through the checkout process and noticed Verizon’s “ship by July 9th” date. However, according to yesterdays intel, Verizon devices could ship as early as July 6th and we’ll happily accept the device in our hands a few days early. Still, for now I’d plan on the above date of July 9th as the expected shipping date.
Here’s the good news, if you pre-order your device and you already have Verizon’s grandfathered unlimited data plan, you can keep it. We’re not sure what happens to those of you may try and pick up the phone in store later on, so if keeping your existing unlimited data plan is important, pre-ordering may be the best option to make sure you keep that plan.
Verizon’s Galaxy S III features a 4.8″ 720p Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 processor, 2GB RAM, 16GB or 32GB of internal storage, 2100mAh battery, 8 megapixel rear camera and 4G LTE connectivity.
So, who is pre-ordering the Galaxy S III on Verizon today?
