    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:

    I'm curious as well. I hope it means that they will arrive before the stores get them.

    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.

    Just received this email about my SIII order:

    Dear Valued Customer,
    Your order is scheduled to be processed. Average processing time is 3 days. You will receive a confirmation email when processing is complete and your device has shipped.
    Thank You,
    Verizon Wireless

    When did you pre-order it? I think I did mine the week of 6/17 rigth after the father's day droid maxx sale was over. I called Verizon today and they said my ship date is listed as 7/10. :frown:

    I ordered on 6/6, I ordered 2 - 1 16GB and 1 32GB. That notice was for only the 16GB one. Have not received anything on the 32GB as yet. :serious:

    Haha, I thought I was the only one with that problem. I can't wait to get my SG3 either.

    I ordered two on 6/12, the day that Verizon made the announcement of Share Everything, and checking the status online it still says processing with an estimated ship date of 7/9.

    I received an email yesterday. My phone will ship today and has an estimated delivery of Monday the 9th. I hope I get it by Saturday. Once it gets put on a truck I can see where it's shipping from.

    Verizon will send you a tracking number via email win it ships. In transit means it is being shipped to a fedex facility. It then will sit there until Monday morning (July 9) when they will delivered. And pick up at fedex is totally taboo.
