Samsung Galaxy S III to hit all major carriers

  • The Galaxy S III will go against the traditional mobile mold and soon be available on every major carrier in the US. That means that Verizon, T-Mobile, AT&T, Sprint, and even US Cellular will all be offering the phone in the coming weeks.

    "The U.S. launch of the Galaxy S III is the most anticipated launch of the year. As promised, we are delivering the 'next big thing' for U.S. customers and across all major carriers. Galaxy S III introduces new technological innovation and takes sharing to the next level," said Samsung Telecommunications America president Dale Sohn.

    At full capacity, Samsung's manufacturing process can reportedly produce 5 million units of the phone per month. It has assumedly been running that production for at least a month.

    Samsung has been very specific that it does not see other Android phones as its competitor - it looks directly at the iPhone. It believes the Galaxy S line can be the definitive Android brand.

    And that isn't just blind arrogance. Samsung owns an astounding 30.6% of the mobile phone market. It toppled Nokia as the leader in the industry for the first time in 15 years.

    And with more than 50% of American consumers now owning smartphones, and with Android as the most popular smartphone platform by far, owning that industry is a huge deal.

    The Galaxy S III will see an almost unparalleled global launch on May 29, with 100 carrier partners already secured at dozens of countries throughout the planet.
