T-Mobile solidifies Galaxy S III details

  • The T-Mobile version of Samsung's Galaxy S III will be the most expensive in the US.

    The carrier has listed a price of $330, and that's after the savings for a two-year service agreement. The company does offer a $50 mail-in rebate, but that still makes the final cost significantly more than the Sprint version, which is $250, and the $200 AT&T version.

    The prices are for the 16 GB version of the device.

    For T-Mobile users wanting the more packed 32 GB product, it will cost $330 after the mail-in rebate, with $380 required up front. The other carriers charge similar premiums for the better version.

    According to pre-orders, more than 9 million customers devices were set aside for pre-orders around the world.

    At full capacity, Samsung's manufacturing process can reportedly produce 5 million units of the phone per 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 saw an almost unprecedented global launch last month, and has solidified partner deals with 100 carriers across the globe.
