Samsung Galaxy S III now available to be pre-ordered at Sprint, AT&T, Verizon and Best Buy retail locations
The calendar in the kitchen now reads June 6th which can only mean one thing. Pre-orders for the Samsung Galaxy S III are being accepted today at the retail locations of Verizon, AT&T, Sprint and Best Buy. Verizon and Sprint will both be offering their customers the 16GB and the 32 GB model while AT&T only has the 16GB model  available, at least for now. On the other hand, the carrier will eventually be offering an exclusive red version of the phone.

All three carriers will have a white version and a blue version with AT&T adding the aforementioned red model at a later date.  AT&T, Sprint and Verizon are each asking $199.99 with a signed 2-year contract for the 16GB variant of the device. Sprint and Verizon have each tagged the 32GB model for $249.99 with a signed 2-year pact.

When will your phone arrive? While Sprint has said that the device will launch on June 21st, their web site adds that the carrier will try to its best to get the phone to you before that date. AT&T has not yet announced a release date and Verizon's own web site shows a July 9th launch date for the handset.

Best Buy's big box locations and Best Buy Mobile have already started accepting pre-orders pre-sales for the Sprint, AT&T and Verizon variants of the phone at the same $199.99 and $249.99 contract price for the 16GB and 32GB versions respectively (except for AT&T which is offering just the 16GB unit, of course). The retailer's web site is still not yet showing the handset. And  that leaves U.S. Cellular and T-Mobile. The latter has no pre-order date scheduled, but is scheduled to have both 16GB and 32GB models available for purchase on June 21st. The former is expected to accept pre-orders on June 12th with the Samsung Galaxy S III arriving in July.
