AT&T lowers the Galaxy S III price to $99 on contract
Prior to the launch of the much-anticipated Galaxy S4, AT&T has decided to lower the price of the still lovely Samsung Galaxy S III. Previously available for $199.99 with a two-year contract, the GS III can now be had for $99.99 on contract.

Apparently, AT&T understands that consumers need enough motivation in order to press the Buy button next to the Galaxy S III, which, while still being a very capable smartphone, is significantly less appealing than its successor, which is expected to make its debut on all US carriers very soon. On AT&T, the Galaxy S4 will be available for pre-order on April 16, and will probably start shipping soon after, as its release date on T-Mobile is set for May 1.

Back to the Galaxy S III - as we said, the handset is still pretty likable with its 4.8" 720p screen, dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor and tons of other features, so if you aren't in the mood of paying for a premium handset, you might be better off siding with this proven smartphone that's now confidently entering mid-range territory.

You can purchase the $99.99 Galaxy S III in blue, white or garnet red.
