Samsung Galaxy S III is Vodafone's most pre-ordered Android phone ever

Samsung Galaxy S III is Vodafone's most pre-ordered Android phone ever
Not that this is a surprise, but Vodafone has announced that the Samsung Galaxy S III is the most pre-ordered Android phone in the history of the carrier. Vodafone didn't mention any specific number, but considering that the phone is the fastest selling gadget of all-time with 9 million units pre-ordered (and that obviously doesn't include the U.S.), it would make sense for Vodafone to be ringing up some impressive numbers for the handset.

Vodafone customers can actually get the 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III for free with monthly plans as low as 41 GBP a month ($64 USD). That plan gives customers 2GB of data, 900 UK minutes, unlimited texts and 100 free music tracks. You will need to sign up for 2 years of this plan to get the free 16GB Samsung Galaxy S III which Vodafone hopes to deliver by the end of this month. By the way, you do get to choose between two colors, white or blue.

Vodafone also has limited exclusivity in the U.K. for the 32GB model of the Samsung Galaxy S III. To get that version of the phone for free, you need to sign up for, at the least, Vodafone's 46 GBP a month plan ($72 USD). This is the same as the 41GBP plan except that it offers 300 more UK minutes for a total of 1200. To pre-order the phone, click on the sourcelink.

Wow. And Vodaphone does carry the iPhone 4s. This makes the idea of the SGS3 being the fastest selling device ever more likely. This is consumers preordering, not carriers, and more are preordering it than the iPhone 4s at it's record breaking launch.

And phonearena changed the headline to read "android phone", making it look like I misread the headline. Thanks, guys!

ha! for those saying that big number might be a bluff, warehouses are smart these days they try to keep orders to a minimum needed so they don't end up with dead merchandise in lots .and the device is rather nice . now the least amounts of issues as possible and fastest support and this device will skyrocket even more
