The amount of hype that has built up around the Galaxy S III launch has been pretty big, I’ve had a number of people who have shown no interest in mobile phones previously asking me what the Galaxy S III would have hardware wise. So this morning, I was kind of expecting to see a signup page from each of the carriers so customers could register their interest and be notified when details were available. Instead we seem to just have generic signup pages for information.
Mobicity has put up a pre-order page and I imagine they’ll be sourcing stock from the European release which Samsung has advised will be on the 29th of May. They have started pricing at $799 with a 12 month warranty(local) in either Marble White or Pebble Blue, you can check their pre-order page here.
From Optus we have a signup page to register your interest in all their Samsung GALAXY smartphones, which you can sign up on here(At least the URL has Galaxy S III in it).
Telstra’s signup page is even more generic but allows you to specify your interest in Samsung and Android devices, you can sign up to that here.
Vodafone has a similar page to Optus to allow you to sign up for info on Samsung Galaxy smnartphones, you can register here.
Samsung Australia has issued this statement, which I would say isn’t going to change until they can firm up details with the carriers :
Samsung Electronics Australia is pleased there is continued interest about our GALAXY range in Australia, but we have no plans to make any announcements at this time
Of course you can check out the Galaxy S III on the Samsung Global site. Samsung in the US has put up a site for people to register interest and after Australians got early access to the Galaxy S II last year it appears that they`ll be turning the tables on us and beating us to the punch this year with the Galaxy S III.
