official launch date of the U.S. version of the Samsung Galaxy S III for some of the stateside mobile operators. As we told you earlier this week, heavy demand for the Samsung Galaxy S III is forcing T-Mobile to split the launch of the handset in two with a launch limited today to stores in the carrier's top 29 markets. Online, the only model available is the 32GB unit in Marble White.
T-Mobile is selling the 16GB variant of the Samsung Galaxy S III for $279.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and a signed 2-year pact. The 32GB model is $329.99 after the same $50 rebate and the signed contract. The carrier says it will broaden out the release of the phone on June 27th.
