    Verizon Makes it Official: The Samsung Galaxy S III Coming July 10th


    Even though the Verizon pre-order ship date for the Samsung Galaxy S III danced around between the 9th, 10th, 11th and 12th, it seems that Big Red was finally able to nail down the actual retail date. Verizon officially announced that their version of the Samsung Galaxy S III will be available in their retail stores on July 10th. That's welcome news... we haven't had a high-end phone launch on Verizon for sometime. Here's the press release below:

    SAMSUNG GALAXY S® III AVAILABLE ON THE VERIZON WIRELESS 4G LTE NETWORK STARTING JULY 10

    BASKING RIDGE, N.J. and DALLAS – Verizon Wireless and Samsung Telecommunications America (Samsung Mobile) today announced that the 4G LTE-powered Samsung Galaxy S® III will be available in Verizon Wireless Communications Stores and online at www.verizonwireless.com/galaxys3 starting July 10. Galaxy S III customers will have access to the Verizon Wireless 4G LTE network which is available in 304 markets across the United States. Verizon Wireless 4G LTE will be in 400 markets covering 260 million people by the end of this year.

    Customers can take advantage of 4G LTE-optimized apps like Color to share live video broadcasts of life’s special moments with their Facebook® friends. Sharing live video with audio is an exclusive feature of the Color app on Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network. Customers can broadcast real-time footage of a newborn’s first step with family members who are miles away or share a beautiful view of a vacation spot to make friends at home jealous. Combining America’s largest 4G LTE network with the Galaxy S III’s 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED™ display creates the perfect duo to watch movies, television shows and other video content with apps like viewdini. Viewdini brings the power of Verizon Wireless’ 4G LTE network to the screen by streamlining access to videos from a wide range of content providers, including cable operators, websites and other popular video sources. The viewdini app can be downloaded from Verizon Apps and Google Play.

    Additional features:

    Android™ 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich
    Mobile Hotspot – Share a 4G LTE connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
    1.5 GHz dual-core processor and 2 GB RAM
    Share Shot – Create a temporary photo sharing network with a group of friends who are nearby at the same party or event; photos can be taken by any member of the group and shared with the entire group
    S Beam – Share pictures, videos, documents and more by simply touching two Galaxy S III devices’ backs together
    S Voice™ – Featuring natural language recognition, you can control the apps and services used most with words instead of touch
    Pop Up Play – Videos can be played in a small window while customers use the rest of the display to complete other tasks such as typing emails, organizing calendars and updating their social networks
    Evolved camera capabilities - Burst Shot mode instantly captures 20 continuous shots and Best Photo feature selects the best shot to display
    Enhanced camera – 8-megapixel rear camera with zero-lag shutter speed and a 1.9-megapixel front camera so customers can capture pictures and videos of themselves or video chat with family and friends
    microSD™ card slot for expandable memory

    The Samsung Galaxy S III is available in 16 GB and 32 GB models for $199.99 and $249.99 respectively with a new two-year customer agreement. The 16 GB model will be available in stores and online starting July 10 and the 32 GB model will be available online starting July 10 and will be in stores in the coming weeks. Customers will also have the choice of the Galaxy S III in two colors: Marble White or Pebble Blue. Customers can visit www.verizonwireless.com/galaxys3 for more information on the Samsung Galaxy S III for Verizon Wireless.

    (EDITOR’S NOTE: Media can access high-resolution images of the Samsung Galaxy S III in the Verizon Wireless Multimedia Library at www.verizonwireless.com/multimedia.)

    Just go into a sprint store and check them both out. They are both on display and I still like the blue one better! The OS is buttery smooth with no lag that I can see and the phone does feel nice in the hand. I don't understand the hate for the casing. I held the iphone 4s and it feels so weighty. I don't need my devices to feel heavy to feel like I have a top end smart phone. Just my 2 cents...

    I for one am not pleased that they are only offering white and blue. There should be a gray or black for those who don't want color on their phone casing.

    I preordered the blue one and have a white case waiting for its arrival. White tends to get dirty faster and show it more. I also have an orange one and a US flag themed one too. Gotta love group specials for things. Anywho, since I have a case and many others will, does it really matter what color it is?

    People tend to think that when soemthing feels weighty, its better made. My DroidX has a great feel to it and the stupid battery door constantly comes off. VERY annoying. I actually want to have a smooth plastic feel for once.
