C Spire Wireless now getting Galaxy S III, "coming soon"

C Spire Wireless now getting Galaxy S III,
C Spire Wireless is a small regional carrier, formerly known as Cellular South, but it made it repeatedly into the headlines after managing to be one of the first regional operators to nail the iPhone 4S from Apple. Many others followed after it, and now C-Spire is again ahead of its competition in getting the Samsung Galaxy S III.

The carrier mostly active in Mississipi said the latest Samsung flagship is coming soon on its network. Let’s clarify, though - we don’t expect the Galaxy S III to arrive on C Spire earlier than on the big four national carriers, but still soon after that is a good guess.

C Spire offers slightly lower prices on its plans, and actually the SGS III will be one of the first handsets to run on the carrier’s upcoming 4G LTE network. C Spire is rolling out LTE across 20 markets in Mississipi in September.

So far, we know that both the pebble blue and marble white versions of the SGS III will arrive on C Spire, and our guess is that both 16- and 32-gigabyte models will be featured as well, but we don’t know about the latter. Stay tuned, the full details should surface soon.

It probably won't reach Metro unfortunately. Well not in the near future at least. Ironically, Cricket, Boost, and Virgin mobile are all getting the iphone 4 and 4S. Metro had its worse 2 quarters in their fiscal history. It's hard to say if they will pursue a deal that large. But who knows, the mobile industry is always surprising.
