Everyone is talking about Samsung Galaxy S3 nowadays, yet no U.S. network carrier released it on time (June 21). After numerous delays, the new Android smartphone is finally hitting AT&T stores on July 6.
The carrier announced on Monday that Samsung Galaxy S3 is finally arriving at AT&T for in store purchase this Friday. AT&T will sell the 16GB version of Galaxy S3 for $199 on 2-year contract.
AT&T is the only carrier in U.S. not to carry 32GB version of Galaxy S3. However, filling the hole, it will offer the Galaxy S3 in red, apart from Marble White and Pebble Blue editions. However, announcement regarding the availability of the rare Galaxy S3 edition is still pending.
Last month, AT&T promised its customer to deliver preordered Galaxy S3's "on or before June 21". However, AT&T failed against its commitment and announced a new date - June 25. Although some customers received the smartphone on highlighted date, but a large number of AT&T users were left out of the preorder rollout.
According to report, AT&T customers who preorder the device mid-June are still waiting for preorders to arrive. We have good news here - preorders that were left in the earlier rollouts are shipping now and will strictly reach you this week as the shortage crisis at AT&T is ending on Friday.
One of the biggest network carriers in U.S. - Verizon Wireless - is sticking to its original release schedule for Samsung's latest flagship smartphone. The in-store availability on Verizon Wireless goes up on July 11.
Sprint is the only U.S. carrier to offer Galaxy S3 for in-store purchases (from last Sunday). T-Mobile, on the other hand, is only major U.S. carrier yet to announce when Galaxy S3 will hit their stores.
