Samsung Galaxy S III for Sprint to launch June 21 for $200, with LTE radio and unlimited data plan

Samsung Galaxy S III for Sprint to launch June 21
The US carriers are on a tear today announcing the Galaxy S III left and right, immediately after Samsung issued the statement it will be launching visually unaltered on all major US carriers.

On all at once maybe should have been included, as Sprint just sent us a press release that it will be having the handset for willing subscribers June 21, just like T-Mobile. That June 12 Samsung event in Boston then should be just a launch party, where you can play around with the handset and even score it in some raffles.

The Samsung Galaxy S III is thankfully the final name, nothing convoluted this time, and the phone will be graced with an LTE radio to take advantage of Sprint's upcoming fast network. We have 1.5GHz dual-core Snpadragon S4 again, 2GB of RAM, and the large 4.8" Super AMOLED screen to play around with. 

The phone will come in Pebble Blue and Marble White (now that's new), and Sprint even divulged the pricing scheme. The LTE-laden Galaxy S III for its network will cost the usual $199.99 on a 2-year contract for the 16GB version, and the 32GB one will be just $50 more, not bad at all. Preorders start tomorrow here, but the page is not active right now. 

Best of all is not that Google Wallet will come preloaded on Sprint's Galaxy S III, but that the carrier will be the only one in the US offering its unlimited data plan for the handset, which has everything in it for $79.99 a month.
