Samsung Galaxy S III now on sale in Dubai, yours for $667
posted by Nick T. / May 22, 2012, 8:13 AM
Although it is not supposed to be on the market just yet, the Samsung Galaxy S III can already be purchased in Dubai, apparently. Advertisements for the highly-anticipated smartphone were spotted at a mall by a fellow Reddit user, who initially presumed that only pre-orders were being accepted. However, after a brief conversation with a store employee, it turned out that the white version of the next Galaxy was in stock indeed with plenty of units waiting to meet their new owners. And if that is not enough, the Samsung Galaxy S III was priced at about $667, which is considerably cheaper than what Amazon is currently asking for the device.
As it was announced during its unveiling, the smartphone's international launch is officially scheduled for May 29, which is a week away from today. And for those who happen to live across the pond, sorry, but you will have to sit tight and be patient as the device's U.S. version is expected to launch next month.
Thanks for sending this in!

The device in person looks much better than in the pictures, it's actually not ugly at all, I personally like it.

Well, gray market is pretty strong here. Here are some prices on the gray market: Galaxy Nexus - 380$ Galaxy S II - 420$ Galaxy Note - 490$ HTC One X - 530$ So, you can understand why they are forced to sell it for this price (Now this price is for the Galaxy Nexus in the malls). Going to check Galaxy S III, I am 100% sure the price will be around 580-600$.

It's available in Pakistan too but for a much higher price tag:79999 PKR($865):http://homeshopping.pk/product
s/Samsung-Galaxy-S-III-3-White-in-Pakistan-.html and while on the other side HTC One X is available for 51500 PKR($564):http://homeshopping.pk/product s/HTC-One-X-in-Pakistan-.html To be very frank i am not willing to pay $300 for Galaxy S3 when both the phones are almost equal in every department especially when One X which has a much better build quality is available for $300 less!!!!
