The Galaxy S3 has been launched today, on many different carriers around the world. One of the first places to get Samsung’s new smartphone will be down under, in Australia. Virgin Mobile have just the phone live on their website – available for $5 per month on a $59 plan.
Check out Virgin’s website for more info on the plan & pricing of the Samsung Galaxy S III in Australia. For now they’ve only got the 16GB White version available, but more variations should be coming in the near future.
If you order now, you should be able to get the 16GB White version within a couple of days. For the 16GB Pebble Blue version, you’ll be waiting until late June.
Samsung won’t release any official figures regarding the number of pre-orders, but at this point it confirmed that “thousands” of customers have preordered the new flagship smartphone. Graham Stapleton, Chief Commercial Officer at Carphone Warehouse, claims the Galaxy S3 is the most popular phone they’ve ever sold.
Pre-order demand for the new Galaxy S3 has surpassed expectations since the handset was first unveiled two weeks ago. The first 24 hours alone saw thousands placing their pre-order at Carphone Warehouse.
The Galaxy S3 is without a doubt the fastest selling pre-order of 2012 so far.
Amazon is well known for putting smartphones on sale several weeks before their release, and ships confirmed orders quite promptly. So if you’re in the market for a Galaxy S3, check out the link below to get your hands on one today!
