Verizon had started rolling out the Android 4.1 update for the Samsung Galaxy S III, it means that all four major stateside carriers have updated the model to Jelly Bean. In the stores, the phone will be available in pebble blue or marble white while more color options are available online.
If you have an upgrade burning a hole in your pocket, you could use it to pick up the Samsung Galaxy S III tomorrow for $49.99 from Best Buy, or you can wait to see what other deals will be available in the next week or so. We must say, it's hard to imagine seeing this model being priced right now for less than tomorrow's sale price from the electronics retailer.
