Red Samsung Galaxy S III now available in the U.K.
Last week, we told you about the South Korean invasion by the Pink Martian colored version of the Samsung Galaxy S III. Considering that 6% of the population in Sammy's home country already owns the device, a color change was probably the less costliest thing that the manufacturer could do to get some of the remaining 94% of the South Korean population to reach for their wallet. It's a great strategy for Samsung, especially as we approach the holiday season. And without being sexist, let's just say that the pink color was a great choice as smartphone savvy women in the country will probably have the phone on their list for Santa Claus.

We're not sure what percentage of the U.K. population owns the Samsung Galaxy S III, but whatever the figure is, Samsung wants more. So right now, U.K. retailer Expansys has available the 16GB red version of the phone along with pebble blue model for £429.99, which translates into $694.18 U.S. dollars. This is £100 less than the price at launch. Keep in mind that this is the international model of the phone which means the quad-core 1.4GHz Exynos processor is powering the device and 1GB of RAM is on board instead of the dual-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 MSM8960 and 2GB of RAM found on the U.S. version of the phone.

You might recall that AT&T at one point was the only place to get the red version of the handset, which was offered as something of a consolation prize to the carrier's customers who were not given an opportunity to buy the 32GB model of the device that the other major U.S. carriers were offering.
