It is June 6th and currently passed 7AM EDT and what that means is the Galaxy S III smartphone is officially available for pre-order with Verizon Wireless. Those interested will be able to shell out $199.99 for the 16GB model or $249.99 for the 32GB model. In terms of the actual availability, so far Verizon has stated that the handset will be available “in the coming weeks” however recent rumors have suggested July 9th. Regardless though, for now the only decisions to make (aside from a purchase) is which color and which storage configuration you are choosing. And keep in mind, the Galaxy S III does have a microSD card slot that will add to the 16GB or 32GB of internal storage. Verizon will have the handset available in Marble White or Pebble Blue. Finally, the Galaxy S III will bring features to include 4G LTE connectivity, Android 4.0 ICS, a 4.8-inch HD Super AMOLED display, dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 2GB of RAM, a 1.9-megapixel front-facing camera and an 8-megapixel rear-facing camera.
